On Thursday, Team USA vs. Sweden will be amongst the highlights for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 matchups on the schedule.
The United States has been dominant so far in the tournament and are looking to capture another victory. Sweden has yet to lose too, and is hoping to play the role of spoilers.
Here are details for the United States Women’s National Team in their matchup against Sweden including the start time, TV channel, and how to watch the game live online.
Team USA vs. Sweden: What’s at stake, odds
Both the United States and Sweden have come away with wins in their first two contests during this 2019 World Cup. USA opened the tournament with a crushing 13-0 win over Thailand and followed it up with a more down-to-earth 3-0 win over Chile.
Sweden beat the same two teams, but by smaller margins of victory, handing a 2-0 loss to Chile and a 5-1 defeat to Thailand.
Both teams have played well over the past decade when it comes to this particular stage too. Team USA lost to Sweden, though, back in Germany during the 2011 World Cup. That may have been some sweet revenge for Sweden who lost to the US back in 2007.
Sweden also knocked Team USA out of the 2016 Rio Olympics on penalty kicks. So this match brings an intriguing revenge factor along with it. A video posted to Twitter captures the emotion of that particular shocking victory from three years ago.
