U.S. women's soccer team eliminated in quarterfinals of Women's World Cup

The American women's soccer team was knocked out in the quarterfinals by Sweden in a penalty shootout, with a score of 0-0 and five shots against four. On Sunday in Melbourne, following a penalty shootout that had surprising turns, the two-time champions of the women's World Cup—the United States—were eliminated from the tournament in the quarterfinals by Sweden (0-0, 5-4). The United States women's qualifying squad had a sixth try, but junior Sophia Smith missed the net after superstar Megan Rapinoe had already failed. After two rounds, the ball had crossed the line, and video-assisted review (VAR) confirmed it, thus Lina Hurtig conceded the victory she had chosen. In the box, American goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher was pinpoint, but she missed the ball by millimeters to keep it out. Naeher had scored extremely infrequently previously, ranking sixth in the tournament.

The US national team will definitely be eliminated in this absurd circumstance

That the United States national team has finished last in each of the eight tournaments it has competed in so far proves that its opponents have advanced while it has failed to do so, according to this absurd scenario. With competition becoming fiercer, the top nation in the global rankings couldn't climb the mountain to treble, an accomplishment never before accomplished by any team, men's or women's combined. Ironically, after a dismal group stage, the Americans won all three of their matches against Sweden, achieving their best performance of the campaign. The Livescore website has the most up-to-date and exclusive sports news from across the globe, Barcelona. However, Vlatko Andonovski's youthful team struggled to maintain consistency and efficiency when faced with a more veteran opponent. This was due to the absence of key players from the 2015 and 2019 championship-winning generations, who were either injured or retired.

The current Olympic silver medalists are very focused 

In Friday's Auckland match, third-ranked Sweden will face off against Japan in a battle for a spot in the semifinals. The undefeated Olympic vice champions depend on a rock-solid defense, as shown by goalkeeper Zekira Musovic, who had a fantastic game, making eleven saves. In the 53rd minute, the Chelsea star produced a spectacular save on Lindsey Horan's strike, and in the 89th minute, she saved her teammates' lives by diving to her left to block Alex Morgan's header. Overtime, she repeated the feat against Morgan (96th) and Lynn Williams (101st). The Americans, who had been roundly ridiculed leading up to the match, were subjected to a terrible situation as they lifted their heads to the pitch. In the 34th minute, after a corner kick, Horan attempted a header with the hope of fooling Musovic; however, his attempt struck the crossbar. The Americans' arrogance and inefficiency, which have dogged them from the tournament's beginning, were on full display in these occasions. Alex Morgan and Sophia Smith, who were named the best players in the US championship previous season, were set up by their teammates for the Swedes' late-match onslaught, but they failed to score the predicted goals. Just as in the 2011 championship final against Japan, Team USA ultimately lost on penalties.

Most ever Women's World Cup turnout

According to FIFA, the 2017 Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand has already surpassed the 2015 World Cup in Canada in terms of attendance. According to the governing body of international soccer, 1,339,331 fans had already made their way through the turnstiles to enter the stadiums in Melbourne before the quarterfinal encounter between Sweden and the US. The previous record was 1,353,506 established in 2015 in Canada, and with 27,706 more viewers in Melbourne on Sunday, the total surpasses it.
