I get the shock result - Sweden beating Germany - but unsure of the surprise as I thought the other 3 teams were favoured in their quarters.

France had not lost to the USA in their last 3 meetings (2 wins, one draw) and was a favorite to win both that match and the tournament...:)

NJL (..Sweden had not beaten Germany since 1995. England beat the USA earlier in 2019...)

Alyssa Naeher was a question mark going into this tournament. She should have been the Player of the Match v England. Two memorable saves, especially on the PK, won the match. Outstanding.

NJL (..the match was a great advertisement for the women's game. Fast, physical and intense. :cheer2::cheer: :respec:…)

USA v The Netherlands in WWC2019 Final Sunday.

If memory serves both teams have given up 3 goals each. It will be interesting.

The Netherlands has already won the infinitely more important Eurovision Song Contest this year so they may as well let the USA win. :saint:

Yeeeessssss!

Best sports team in the US, male or female: gold: USA women’s soccer; silver USA women’s gymnastics; bronze tie between NE Patriots and Golden State Warriors.

Netherlands goalie is best goalie of WC.

I did not realize that this was the Dutch’s second World Cup ever. Really a lot to be proud of!
