USA maintain perfect record, Cameroon reach last 16 with last-gasp winner

The metered market demo number is up 36% over the U.S.' wince-inducing 13-0 victory over Thailand in the squad's tournament opener June 11, which also aired midday on the network during the week.

Lindsey Horan netted the tournament's fastest goal after three minutes and Jonna Andersson scored an own goal as the United States of America beat the record for most goals (18) in the women's World Cup group stage.

The game remained competitive until the beginning of the second half when Tobin Heath impressed fans with her quick footwork and accuracy, making a goal from the far right corner and putting the Americans up 2-0.

However, their defeat means that they have Canada next in Paris on Monday and are in an easier side of the knockout draw from the States, who have hosts France, England and Norway as potential opponents further down the line.

Sweden did not have much to offer in the last 40-plus minutes, leaving both sides to look ahead to the knockout stage.

For Thailand, the 13-goal thrashing at the hands of the US set the stage for what will go down as the worst group stage in the history of the competition.

"At this point, just having the depth that we need, especially in that midfield with legs, I think that's important", Ellis said.

Lindsey Horan scored the fastest goal of the World Cup so far before Tobin Heath's shot deflected in off Jonna Andersson for an own goal, meaning U.S. scored a record 18 times in the group stage.

They have not been severely tested, but with all of the contenders securing passage, the road is going to get rougher.

United States' defender Kelley O'Hara celebrates after her team's second goal during Thursday's match.

"I think after the game that might be a fair comment".

"It was the most hard starting XI I've ever selected as there was so many parameters to consider", Gerhardsson said.

The United States got off to their best start of the tournament when Lindsey Horan was able to slip one past Swedish goalkeeper in the third minute.

Late in the first half, however, forward Alex Morgan, suffered an injury off a foul and appeared to be in some level of pain for the rest of regulation play. As good as this game was, there's still a feeling the USA hasn't hit its ceiling. "We absolutely learned a lot from that game". Despite Lloyd being in an offsides position and forcing the defender to clear the ball, VAR did not overturn the goal.

The video assistant referee recommended a review to determine whether Lloyd's positioning should nullify the goal. "We talk about the idea of 360-degree defending where everyone is defending". She danced with the ball in front of Swedish defender Jonna Anderson and fired a cross that went off Andersson's foot and into goal.
