The elimination stage will feature eight teams. To progress, the United States will most likely require at least a win and a draw.
The loss to Sweden was the first time the team had lost a game by multiple goals since 2008, the first time they had gone 73 games without scoring a goal, and the first time they had lost a game in regulation since 2011.
“Didn’t we get our asses kicked? Megan Rapinoe remarked after the loss, “I thought we were a bit tight, a little jittery, and just doing silly stuff.”

“It’s clear that we dug ourselves a deep hole, but we’re the only ones who can dig ourselves out. It isn’t going to be simple. We need to win the next two games, but the fact that there is still a chance means I know this team will not give up,” said head coach Vlatko Andonoski.
On July 27, the United States will meet Australia.
