Women's World Cup: Sweden v USWNT Highlights

Well played Sweden. The USWNT continues a string of firsts. First they don't make the CONCACAF finals and have to play Italy in a play off even to be in the Cup, then they are the only CONCACAF team to make it out of the first round, oh and they lose their first group stage match... ever. That said, the US had an exceedingly tough schedule and with this loss, they put themselves in the unenviable position of now facing Brazil in the quarterfinals. If they should lose to Brazil, it will be the quickest elimination ever for the USWNT and the first time they didn't place in the top 3.

Dahlqvist and Fischer both score in the first half for Sweden as the US gets a token late goal from Wambach to keep the scoreline respectable in this match as the US more than doubles the Swedish shots on goal with 20.
