The U.S. Women’s National Team (mostly) cruised through the group stage, finishing with seven points after a surprising tie with Colombia. Now the team moves on to the quarterfinals, where the women will play former U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage’s Swedish side. Sweden placed third in Group E.

The USWNT is undefeated in 2016 at 16-0-2, allowing just six goals (two of which came the other night against Colombia). The last time the U.S. team played Sweden was the 2015 World Cup last summer, and they tied 0-0.
