FIFA Women's World Cup: Where to watch England's battle for third vs. Sweden on July 6

July 5, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
After their disappointing loss to the USA in the semi-finals, England will hope to try to secure third spot as they take on Sweden in the consolation match on Saturday.

How they got to this juncture: England vs Sweden

England kicked off their World Cup campaign in excellent form, winning all three of their group stage matches against debutants Scotland, 2011 World Cup winners Japan, and Argentina while conceding just one goal. They survived a nasty battle in the round of 16 against a very physical and aggressive Cameroon side to earn a 3-0 victory, before dispatching Norway by the same score-line in the quarter-finals without much fuss.

After the impressive showing by the men's side last year in Russia, England's women's team were looking to go one step further and make it to the final. The men's team were unfortunately denied a chance to feature in the final after losing to surprise package Croatia in the semi's, and for the Three Lionesses, their task was even much more difficult as they had to take on reigning champions USA in the final four. Still, Phil Neville's ladies did not make things easy for the Stars and Stripes, and despite the bitter disappointment of losing their first game at this tournament, England have a chance to at least win a medal.

Should they win the third-place game, it will mark the second time they have won third after doing so in Canada four years ago.

As for Sweden, they started off their World Cup tournament with two relatively comfortable wins over debutants Chile (2-0) and Thailand (5-1), which set them up for a head-to-head clash against reigning champions USA for top spot in Group F. Although they ended up losing that game 2-0, nonetheless, their six points earned were enough for the Blågult to progress to the round of 16 as runners-up.

Opponents Canada proved to be a very stern test, but Peter Gerhardsson's squad got a breakthrough thanks to Stina Blackstenius's goal ten minutes after the start of the second half. Following that, the Blågult pulled off one of the biggest upsets of this summer's tournament by defeating Germany 2-1. Why was it so notable? For starters, Sweden hadn't beaten Germany since 1991. In addition, the no. 2 ranked side in the world had not conceded a single goal so far this summer, but conceded twice in the span of 90 minutes. And finally, no team had gone 1-0 up in the quarter-finals and ended up losing since 1999.

Naturally, Sweden were brimming with confidence as they faced the Netherlands in the semi-finals, and their fans were dreaming of a clash with the USA in the final. However, despite putting up a strong defensive showing, the Blågult were undone by a goal in extra-time and now will have to regroup themselves as they take on an England side still smarting after their 2-1 defeat to the USA in the semi-finals.
