On to the second round for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

U.S. doesn’t care if a win over Sweden makes their World Cup trek tougher

Deemed favorites to lift the trophy in France, the US faced a harsh challenge from Spain, who advanced to the knockouts as the runners-up from Group B. After video review confirmed the referee's call, Rapinoe buried her second penalty kick in the 76th minute to seal the victory.

"Any time I watch each one of them play, it comes out in my own game", said Finley Scott, 12, of IL, explaining how she'll mimic Julie Ertz or Alex Morgan to get around defenders to score.

Rapinoe has refused to sing the "Star Spangled Banner" before each of the matches during the tournament as protest of injustice in the United States. If you'd been properly prepared and watched their recent games - and then re-watched their games - you would know that this team was going to cause the U.S. trouble, and could beat them. Morgan, who didn't play the second half against Sweden after getting dinged up, didn't look 100% and struggled to get a touch on countless balls sent in her direction. Ellis said she's fine, too. Now, they only have three days to rest before the match we've all been anticipating for six months.

Spain had got themselves back into the game two minutes after Rapinoe's opener through a fine lob from Jennifer Hermoso following sloppy play at the back from the Americans.

Sweden finished second in their group behind the United States. The cards could become an issue for the United States.

"Any team that gets out of the group and is in this position you 100% respect and obviously we need to have very good preparation and performance to do very well against them".

Lopez lines up Fever-Tree Championships final against Simon
Ahead of Wimbledon 2019, Here's a Throwback to 2013 Men's Singles Final Between Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic (Watch Video ). I've said since my operation I ultimately would like to return to playing singles, but honestly I don't mind either way.

The most expensive ticket for Phil Neville's side's second knockout game is just £133, showing the huge disparity between the two matches.

Sweden have been to all eight World Cups since the women's tournament started in 1991. Christen Press scored the lone goal in a 1-0 victory. "It would have probably been better just to put the it up the field a little bit more". We've been traveling pretty deep in this World Cup. Some Americans who played in that game didn't even make Ellis's final roster.

It wasn't easy, and at times there was doubt, but defending champion the U.S. can look ahead to a mouthwatering quarterfinal clash against host France after a 2-1 win over a resolute Spain.

The U.S. still managed to pull off a 2-1 win, and Rapinoe credited the team for playing through the challenges Spain presented. "In fact all of their opponents", said coach Ellis.

Lloyd should have scored a third in the dying minutes, but the striker drew a fine save from Hedvig Lindahl.

After the USA and France both survived round-of-16 scares, we can finally officially discuss their upcoming quarterfinal matchup. Midfielder Julie Ertz - a player who kept a photo of the Sweden defeat as a screensaver on her phone as a way of using failure to fuel the fire - was the only absentee through injury. Germany advanced to the quarterfinals for the eighth straight time, beating Nigeria 3-0 on Saturday.
