Sweden Women News and Form
Sweden probably always knew that they were going to have a tough time beating the United States to the top spot in their group. Sweden opened with a 2-0 win over Chile, before taking a 5-1 success over Thailand. So it came down to them and the United States in their final group stage action to see who would win the group. Sweden barely laid a glove on the reigning champions and ended up losing 2-0 even though the second goal against them was pretty controversial. They never looked like raising themselves to pull off an upset.
The loss against America saw Sweden have a four-match winning streak snapped. They are always a very strong and organised unit and they have collected three clean sheets in their last five fixtures. There is a bit surprising though that their actual World Cup form over the last couple of editions has not been all that hot. Sweden are W2 D3 L2 in their last seven World Cup fixtures, a game with both of those wins in a sequence happening in this campaign. Four years ago they lost in the round of 16 to Germany, after having drawn all three of their group stage fixtures. They will know that they are going to get a tough game against the Canadians.
Canada Women News and Form
The Canadians have looked a pretty assured team even though they missed out on the top spot in their group. The Canadians beat Cameroon and New Zealand with clean sheets, which put them into a battle for top spot against the Netherlands. Canada suffered a 2-1 loss in that fixture. So if you look at their recent run of form Canada have been really strong. For starters, they have earned a clean sheet in seven of their last nine fixtures. They conceded more goals in a game against the Netherlands than they had done in their previous eight games played.
Their superstar striker Christine Sinclair got her first goal of the tournament with what proved to be a consolation against the Dutch. That is five World Cup tournaments that she has scored in. Canada are robust and flexible and they look stronger than they did four years ago. As hosts of the 2015 World Cup Canada were stopped in the quarter-finals by England. Over their last eight, World Cup fixtures Canada have won half of those (D2 L2). Are they going to be able to find a way past the Swedes, which doesn’t look to be that easy of a task?
