The United States wasted no time getting on the board earning a corner kick in the third minute of play. U.S. forward Megan Rapinoe sent a low bouncing ball into the box that somehow missed every Sweden defender. It found its way to Lindsey Horan who made no mistake getting into the net quickly for the first goal of the game.

After some back and forth play, each team had some good chances to add tallies. But after the first 45, the U.S. took a 1-0 lead into the break.

It took until the second half for the U.S. to get on the board again. A long ball was played into the box for Tobin Heath who danced in close to get it into the net. After review, the tally was marked as an own goal, touched in the end by Sweden's Jonna Andersson. The goal was the 18th of the tournament for the U.S., setting a record for most goals by a single team in the group stage of the tournament.

While it wasn't the blowout fans have come to expect, it got the job done. The USWNT ties Germany as the only two teams to win their Group seven times. Head coach Jill Ellis extends her all-time World Cup record to nine wins and one draw.
