The United States comes on the heels of a negative tie with Australia, and this approach has drawn some criticism. The US was a team that prided itself on being both an aggressor and an enforcer at the same time, but it took the form of a more passive defensive side, a team that looked content with a draw and second in the group. True, the win would not have led to a different fate after Sweden moved up the rankings in the group stage, including a 3-0 win over the United States, but Vlatko Andonovsky’s team is starting to change the story now that the knockout stage is here. .
She was in the quarter-finals when the United States lost to Sweden on penalties in Brazil five years ago, the first time the team had failed to reach the gold-medal match. It takes a victory against one of the most dangerous teams still on the field to ensure that fate does not repeat itself this time.
