USA take top spot
 Women's Football World Cup News - 21 Jun 2019
 
United States made it three wins out three to finish on top of Group F, beating Sweden 2-0 in Le Havre.
 
Top spot was on offer for the winners of the game but USA were in control from the third minute, when an unmarked Lindsey Horan gave them the lead when scoring from close range following a corner.
 
The game was put beyond doubt early in the second half, but not without yet another VAR controversy. Megan Rapinoe's cross saw Linda Sembrant miscue her clearance and the ball fell for Tobin Heath, whose shot deflected in off Jonna Andersson. However, Carli Lloyd was clearly in an offside position from the cross and she challenged Sembrant's attempt to clear - but the midfielder was somehow adjudged to not be interfering with play.
 
Chile meanwhile went into their game with Thailand needing a three-goal lead to progress and after a goalless first half, they went in front in rather fortuitous fashion when Yanara Aedo's shot came back off the post and hit goalkeeper Waraporn Boonsing before going into the net.
 
With ten minutes remaining, Maria Jose Urrutia headed in a second and Chile had their sights firmly fixed on a meeting with England in the last sixteen.
 
This became more of a reality when Boonsing brought down Urrutia in the area and Chile were awarded a penalty. Francisca Lara stepped to take the kick but, to her horror, the ball came back off the bar.
 
Chile threw everything they could at Thailand late on with Urrutia coming closest when her shot hit the post. Even goalkeeper Cristiane Endler came up for a corner late on but it was not to be and Chile were to end up heartbreakingly short.
