The US girls’s football group didn’t get off at the proper foot on the Tokyo Olympics.
The USWNT had their 44-game successful streak snapped by way of Sweden on Wednesday. The Swedes, who eradicated the American citizens from the 2016 Video games, cruised to a 3-0 win and jumped to the highest of the Workforce G standings.
Megan Rapinoe, who’s taking part in in her 3rd Olympics with the USWNT, said there’s “no time to reside” at the loss to Sweden. However she did counsel the defeat stings slightly extra given the opponent.
“Did we predict this consequence this night? No,” Rapinoe informed journalists, in keeping with ESPN. “It’s irritating, and it’s irritating that it’s Sweden. They discovered a large number of house on us. I don’t even know the way many objectives now we have given up this complete yr. I don’t take into account the ultimate time we gave up a objective. As a way to surrender 3 isn’t nice.”
Rapinoe and Co. now will vie for victories of their ultimate two group-stage video games in hopes of advancing to the knockout rounds. The USWNT returns to the sphere Saturday in opposition to New Zealand and can fight Australia subsequent Tuesday.
