Perfect US beats Sweden 2-0 to top Group F

GRENOBLE FRANCE- JUNE 15 A fan waves a FIFA Women's world cup flag prior to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup France group E match between Canada and New Zealand at Stade des Alpes

2 - Cameroon are into the knockout rounds of the quadrennial tournament for the second time in a row. Perhaps its senior national team, now ranked No. 13 in the world by Federation Internationale de Football Association, was overlooked as it played the U.S.as close as can be.

"We know we have a knockout match on Monday and that's the most important game", he told reporters.

After today's victory, the United States will take on Spain in the round of 16. The United States' buildup play improved, but the final pass remained elusive.

France are bidding to win their first major tournament, while the US are attempting to lift a record fourth Women's World Cup. Despite winning two of three games, Brazil finished third in Group C behind Italy and Australia. Vegas agrees: Die Nationalelf are the second-biggest moneyline favorite to win in the round of 16 (-600 as of Friday afternoon) after England (-750).

Ajara Nchout became the heroine of Cameroon as her brace including a last-gasp victor helped the African squad cruise into the knockout stage.

The United States of America did great by playing a high press and making Sweden look vulnerable especially for large stages of the first half. The Dutch defeated Canada 2-1 to win Group E and drew the 2011 champions and 2015 finalist Japan in the second round. "Let them talk. We will play".

Bayern Munich striker Lineth Beerensteyn grabbed the victor 15 minutes from time after Sinclair had scored in her fifth successive World Cup to cancel out Anouk Dekker's 54th-minute opener. Gifting chances to either of those two incredibly potent attacks could easily end in disaster.

World Cup viewership on Star Sports continues to grow
For the match scheduled on June 22, the Afghanistan team might have to switch their kits as both the countries wear blue jerseys. The jersey being the "away" jersey, and according to reports, will be orange in colour with the collar having a blue strip.

RECAPPING SUNDAY: Where to start with England and Cameroon? "We're going to grow from this defeat, and I'm really sure all the players on the team have ensured their future". The jury is still out for now.

The US did not concede a goal in the group phase.

Sweden, meanwhile, faces Canada on Monday.

"We need to insure that it doesn't get in our head".

Morgan's health is a story line moving forward for the United States, but her Thailand performance was one for the record books as only Michelle Akers had previously scored that many goals in a Women's World Cup match, doing so in 1991. Only the heroics of goalkeeper Christiane Endler kept Chile from suffering a similar fate, while the Americans ground out a 2-0 win over regular foes Sweden to take maximum points.

Their salvation came when Rose Lavelle fell in the box after slight contact with Virginia Torrecilla, prompting referee Katalin Kulcsar to award a penalty, which was confirmed by VAR review to Spain's understandable frustration. They also threatened to expose American defensive weakness. The United States went up 2-0 on an own goal off Jonna Andersson in the 50th minute that gave the Americans a tournament-record 18 goals in the group stage.

3 - Since it reached the final back in 1999, China has lost three of its last four knockout-stage games at the tournament (one win), never advancing further than the quarterfinal stage. Even if France are upset by Brazil, the Brazilians could also pose a serious threat to that USWNT backline.
