The Americans handily defeated Sweden 2-0, avenging their 2016 Olympics loss in resounding fashion.
The US wasted no team getting on the board, as Lindsey Horan finished a Sam Mewis feed in the 3rd minute.
From there, Sweden was able to create some opportunities and slow the game down. However, in the 50th minute Tobin Heath created an individual moment of brilliance to tally an own goal on Sweden and ice the game for the US.
The goal was the US’ 18th in the group stage, setting a new record.
