The Sweden vs USA live stream is happening now. It sees the USWNT look to bounce back after an underwhelming group stage against a Swedish side that topped its own group in impressive fashion — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Sweden have enjoyed an almost perfect run so far at the Women’s World Cup 2023. A slender victory over South Africa was followed by a 5-0 thrashing of Italy and a comfortable win over Argentina, with just a single goal conceded in those three matches. Sweden topped Group G by a clear margin with Arsenal defender Amanda Ilestedt an unlikely source of goals scoring in every single group stage match. Their reward for such a sparkling group stage performance is a showdown with the USA in Melbourne, Australia.
Currently, the USWNT are not striking as much fear into their opposition as they have done at previous World Cups. The back-to-back reigning champions have looked a little shaky at this year's tournament. In fact, the side was unable to top Group E after consecutive draws against Netherlands and Portugal. Historically a very ruthless side, so far the USA have looked rudderless. They will need to improve quickly if they are to successfully defend their world title and extend their record number of Women’s World Cups to five.
In a surprising turn of events, based on their World Cup 2023 group stage performances, you’d have to rank Sweden as the favorites going into this match. But the USA have a proven track record of excellence, and if this still highly talented squad can click into gear, we should be in for a thrilling round of 16 tie.
Can Sweden cause a major upset and send the USA home in the first knockout round, or will the USWNT prove their group stage slump was just a temporary setback? You’ll have to watch a Sweden vs USA live stream to find out and we’ve got all the details you need down below.
