Quotes

"We’re not happy that we gave up three goals, however, at the end of the day we got one point and there’s good things to bring to the next game. The game plan was different than what you saw. Again, we got one point and next time, when we play the States, I hope we will follow the game plan," Pia Sundhage, Sweden coach.
