USA and Sweden cruise through
 Women's Football World Cup News - 17 Jun 2019
 
United States and Sweden have become the latest countries to book their place in the last sixteen of the World Cup, with a game to spare.
 
Sweden were first in action and ensured themselves a top two place by beating Thailand 5-1. Thailand competed well throughout the game but the Swedes were too strong overall and they eased into the lead when Linda Sembrandt headed in from close range after six minutes, before Kosovare Asllani and Fridolina Rolfo added further goals ahead of half time.
 
Lina Hurtig headed in the fourth goal but in the later stages, Thailand got the goal they craved when captain Kanjana Sung-Ngoen broke through to fire home. Sweden were to have the final say with the last kick of the game via a penalty, harshly awarded through VAR for handball. Elin Rubensson stepped up to finish emphatically from the spot and make it two wins out of two for her game.
 
USA meanwhile won 3-0 against Chile and continue to look ominously strong. Although there was no repeat of the goal blitz in their opener against Thailand, all three came during the first half with Carli Lloyd putting them ahead after eleven minutes.
 
Julie Ertz and Lloyd added the others, both scoring with headers from corners, but they could not increase their lead after the break, mainly due to outstanding Chile goalkeeper Christiane Endler who pulled off a number of fine saves. The USA also hit the woodwork three times whilst Lloyd passed up a golden chance to complete her hat-trick when she shot wide from a penalty.
