Tokyo 2020 | Big surprise in women’s football: Top-ranked USA falls sharply against Sweden

The Swedish women made it clear from the minute that they were not inspired by the ruling world champion. Sweden beat the United States in the early stages, leaving some good opportunities to take the lead. It was attacked in the 25th minute. Stina Blackstenius made a good headline in the first post and qualified to put her team 1-0 up.

America was lucky because it stayed that way for half the time, but the title favorite game after tea was no better. Sweden continued to dominate and again rewarded themselves in the 55th minute. A corner initially headed towards the post, but Blacksteinius stared and worked his way back into Cole’s roof.

After 2-0, the American women created a bit more chances, but in the 72nd minute Lena Hardick gave a deadly blow. American left-hander Kristen Press had a great chance for a connecting goal two minutes ago. However, from close range, the Press was able to hit the post for an open goal. Moments later, Hardick nodded to Hannah Klaas’ perfect pass, with which he put the final score on the board.
