July 21, 2021 – The U.S. women’s team has got off to a particularly bad start at the Olympics in Japan. The dominant world champion lost to Sweden 3-0 in the first group match. This is annoying for orange lions.
Sweden showed their best side on Asian soil and took the lead in the first half. Stina Blacksteinius surprisingly gave the Swedish women a 1-0 lead. However, it did not stop there because the striker attacked again after tea. To make matters worse, the United States also scored 3-0 via Lena Hardick.
The fact that American women lose a match can be called special. The world champion was unbeaten in 44 consecutive games. Experiencing very rare failure in sports is very sour for national coach Vladko Antonovsky. The United States also plays against New Zealand and Australia in the group stage.
The Orange Lions will also be watching the performances in this group. National coach Sarina Wickman’s team will definitely play against a team from this team. However, the Netherlands must first try to escape from its own group. This afternoon, the Orange team will play against Zambia, followed by matches against Brazil and China.
