Review

The final group match for reigning champions USA should see them advance as the winners of Group F, but their opponents are their nemesis, who dumped them unceremoniously out of the 2016 Olympics, beating them on penalties in the quarter-finals.

Back then US supporters were shocked and angry that the national team had been beaten by a “cowardly” Swedish side, who locked Team USA into stalemate before the roulette of penalties decided their fate. But the Swedes are now a more attacking side who represent more of a danger going forward. On paper they’re playing to see who tops the group, but in their hearts USA will be out for revenge.

Summary

Sweden v USA (Kick-off 8.00pm). Coverage of both teams' third and final Group F encounter, held at Stade Oceane in Le Havre. These sides also met in the group stage of the 2015 World Cup, when Sweden held the eventual champions to a goalless draw. That result helped the Swedes reach the last 16, where they were eliminated by Germany.
