The women's team faces Sweden on Thursday in their final group game at the 2019 Women's World Cup in France, with the top spot in Group F in the final stretch. These two bitter rivals have a long history that includes five consecutive matches at the Women's World Cup. Sweden have been a thorn in the US women's team, eliminating the Americans in the quarterfinals of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and finishing with a silver medal in the competition.

However, it was the United States that quickly became the thorn in the side of Sweden. Just three minutes into the game, a dominant US team took a 1-0 lead. Megan Rapinoe won a corner on the left, tapped a low ball with pace that found its way through the goal line, and Lindsey Horan made the rest to get the Americans on the scoresheet. Five minutes after the interval, Tobin Heath scored from a tight angle to make it 2-0. The goal was analyzed by the Video Assistant Referee system for a possible impediment at a cross that led to Heath's goal but the move was confirmed.
