US 2-0 Sweden

USWNT coach Jill Ellis

The USA made it 3 wins from 3 in Group F at the Women's World Cup to remain on course for a quarter-final showdown with hosts France.

Horan scored in the first three minutes of the game after Megan Rapino delivered a corner kick low and to the center of the box-right to Horan's feet! After that, Sweden kept pressuring the US' left side, beating Dunn a few times to get a few shots off in the first half, but not scoring a goal.

With the 2-0, the United States wins the group and sets the record for most goals and biggest goal differential in the group stage at a Women's World Cup.

The U.S. plays Spain in Reims, France, on Monday in a round of 16 knockout match. They are more than worthy of their spot in the knockout phase, but will know that they'll need to up their game in the latter stages. But after dispatching Sweden, one gets the sense they are eager to welcome all comers. Lloyd replaced star player Alex Morgan at half-time after the 29-year-old took a knock in the opening 45 minutes, but U.S. coach Jill Ellis was non-committal on whether she would be fit for Spain. Sweden will play Canada in Paris. They do have several players capable of putting the ball in the back of the net, with four players netting double digit goals at the worldwide level.

In that game, Sweden hunkered down defensively and prevented the US offense from getting chances. "While we welcome the opportunity to mediate, we are disappointed the plaintiffs' counsel felt it necessary to share this news publicly during the Women's World Cup and create any possible distraction from the team's focus on the tournament and success on the field", federation spokesman Neil Buethe said in an email.

Giving the US a hard time shouldn't be a problem for Sweden, especially with star striker Stina Blackstenius on their roster. The United States has outscored their first two opponents by a count of 16-0, and they look poised to make a deep run in this tournament.

Lloyd is making a big return after she played 18 matches and scored six goals at the last 2015 tournament in which the US won. While the second half was far less open, Sweden upping the tempo of their high press and disrupting the USA's rhythm for long periods, were it not for Lindahl - whose best save came against Carli Lloyd one-on-one - the reigning champions might have scored even more. You see, in the 2016 Olympics, Sweden knocked the U.S. out of the tournament in a quarter-final match. "We're so motivated to want to win and succeed". Led the line with intent and determination, but is still looking for a first goal at this World Cup.

Viewership for the USA's World Cup games are just as important as your favorite tv shows. US players have said playing in front of so many fans cheering for them makes it feel like they're playing a home game - even though they're thousands of miles from home.

Their hammering at the hands of US in its opening match contributed to the team conceding 20 goals at the finals, more than any team in the tournament's history. It was Horan's second goal in France and the earliest goal of the tournament.

Ellis said Julie Ertz and Morgan were "fine" but didn't elaborate.

The more viewers of each of the USWNT matches, the better.
