Japan has not found its rhythm in this tournament so far. However, after Tian caught the ball, they successfully counterattacked. She fled to Swedish territory and was taken by Andjdal.

The lawyer gives a free gift. Japan tried to practice by attacking from short range, but Sweden’s defender was careful and intercepted the ball. Sweden is good with the ball but has a hard time creating the truth.

The game is a bit messy, with no real controls. Now it’s Japan’s turn to threaten Sweden.

Shimizu had a nice ball from the right, rushed into the penalty area, and crossed the ball before it went out.

The cross was too high for Sugita but found Miyazawa on the back post and despite not having good control of the ball, the next shot was fine for Sweden. Sweden’s talented and media-savvy player Zecira Musovic makes a name for herself with her performance in America’s last 16 games, despite not having much to show against Japan. Sweden started the second half just as they did in the first half, with more possession.

No change at halftime.

Another great save from Yamashita. Kaneryd’s shot from the corner of the penalty area looked like it would fly into the upper corner, but the Japanese goalkeeper made a great save.

This is to protect the homeland!
