World Cup Recap: Match Day Six

I am in Canada enjoying everything that is the World Cup. Here is the Match Day Six recap.

Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

Match Day Six was an exciting one in the 2015 World Cup with four more matches, a game that featured a touchdown and an extra point and a draw for the USA.  The United States are all alone on their group after Match Day Six with four points after a 0-0 draw with Sweden.  It was a close match which, at times, seemed like USA were going to find a winner, but the USWNT could not and settled for the draw.

Your Match Day Six Recap:

Australia 2:0 Nigeria--Winnipeg, Manitoba

The Matilda's were dominate all afternoon on a warm and sunny day in Manitoba and although Nigeria made several runs at goal, they were never truly a worry to score.  Kyah Simon led the Matilda's with a brace and the most controversial thing of the night happened to be at the end of the match.  The fourth official had signaled for four minutes  of stoppage time, but the ref blew the whistle after one.  Not that it mattered as Nigeria was outclassed all night.

Switzerland 10:1 Ecuador

Wow.  Enough said:

United States 0:0 Sweden

This is a tough one to talk about.  At times it felt like the United States would run away winners, but at other points it felt as if they were second best.  The best chance of the night came to Sweden however, and the US really struggled to get anything going on the offensive end.  Yes, the USA is in first place in their group.  But they have yet to really impress in two matches.

Japan 2:1 Cameroon

This match was a bit of a let down as it was clear from the start that Japan was the more quality side although Cameroon did attempt to make it interesting.  The defending World Cup Champions showed their quality on both the offensive and defensive prowess.  Cameroon was able to grab a goal late in the match to make the last several minutes interesting, but ultimately, Japan was able to hold on for the win.
