USA 0-0 Sweden | Women's World Cup Group D Match Report

It was supposed to be a clash of the titans, but it looked more like a stalemate of the uninspired. In front of a sellout crowd of almost 33,000 overwhelmingly American fans on Friday, No 2-ranked USA Woman's Soccer team and No 5-ranked Sweden looked out of ideas. Perhaps daunted by the hype surrounding this high-caliber face-off. After a few good chances for memorable moments, the US and Sweden settled for a scoreless draw. The match held major implications for both sides. Each would be the toughest competition the other would face in the group stage, meaning a win could’ve perhaps secured a position atop the group. But neither side was able to get much going, with the match coming down to perhaps one defensive moment.
