Sweden Dominates The FIFA Women’s World Cup

Sweden are dominant in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, proving why they are the favourites to win the competition. The Swedish team came top in Group G winning all three matches in the group stages before meeting the defending champions in the last 16.

The third-ranked Swedish side have shown resilience and determination thus far in the competition, winning 2-1 against Banyana Banyana in their first match, scoring the winning goal in the dying minutes of the game, and winning on penalties against USA in what was a scintillating football match to watch.

Being a formidable team has been a key factor for Sweden, starting with their goalkeeper, Zecira Musovic who has been outstanding so far. It was a defining moment for the team when she displayed a brilliant performance during the penalty shoot-out against USA, Amanda Ilestedt also has been a key player for the team, with dazzling performance considering that she’s a defender, with four goals so far in the competition, one goal behind the top goal scorer, Japan’s Hinata Miyazawa.

Sweden beat another strong opponent, Japan 2-1 who were also the favourites to win the World Cup. Japan dominated group C, finding the net 11 times across the three games without conceding, before beating Norway 3-1 in the round of 16. It was a thriller, a game of two halves. Sweden had a good first half, taking a lead in the 32nd minute of the game before doubling the lead on a penalty spot in the second half.

Sweden are through into the semi-finals and will face Spain on Tuesday who beat Netherlands 2-1 earlier today. This means we will see a new name in the trophy in this year’s edition of FIFA Women’s World Cup, after both USA and Japan’s elimination.
