Australia will be going back down under. If the Swedish girls can keep themselves cool and use their chances they will win pretty easily against the Aussies. Sweden lack a little flair but is hard working and know how to be at the right places when defending. The keeper and the defence is the week spot in Australia and will be punished hard by Lotta Schelin and Josefine Öqvist ;)

Game was a disgrace and showed how overrated our USA team is. I can not understand anyone's comment saying Sweden did not deserve to win this game. In fact the off sides call that would have been goal number 3 was questionable. Germany or Brazil will probably win the cup. One team no one talks about that to me is a dark horse is France. I think they have been the 3rd best team in the tournament next to Germany and Brazil.
