World Cup Knockout Round – Day 3

Sweden 1-0 Canada Canada dominated the first half but couldn’t score. The Swedes drew blood in the second half and that was enough with Hedvig Lindahl protecting their goal. Lindahl won Player of the Match for an amazing stop on a Canadian penalty shot that would have tied the match.

Spain 1-2 USA The Roja’s Hermoso scored the first goal against the US in this World Cup. US scoring was two penalty shots by Megan Rapinoe. Spain is ready to play at this level. It wasn’t an elegant win by the US, but it was enough to move on to the quarterfinals.
