USA vs Sweden: WWC Match Review

The USA still find themselves at the top of Group D despite their goalless game against Sweden on Friday evening. However they now only have 1 point between them and Australia in second.

The USA still find themselves at the top of Group D despite their goalless game against Sweden on Friday evening. However they now only have 1 point between them and Australia in second.

The USWNT dominated play for large intervals throughout the match, but overall the game was fairly even on both sides. There were a few good chances for certain players to break the draw, the first of which came after USA midfielder Morgan Brian served a great ball directly into the box, but although forward Sydney Leroux managed to get her head up to the ball first, she was unable to gather enough power to direct it into the goal.

USA had another chance when captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd came very close to putting her team in the lead in the 48th minute, but her shot was denied by Sweden's goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl.

The closest shot of the entire game came from Sweden's midfielder Caroline Seger but incredible defence from USA's defender Meghan Klingenberg ensured they wouldn't take the lead as she knocked Seger's shot off the underside of the crossbar and away from Hope Solo's goal.

USA continued to press forward, but neither team were able to find the win that they had set out for, unfortunately ending in a goalless draw. Both teams defended very well, but it just wasn't good enough for an outright win.
