Rivalry with Sweden set for renewal in two-game set

Posted on 13 July 2010 by ASN Staff

The USA renews what has been an excellent rivalry with Sweden, the home nation of its coach Pia Sundhage, during two summer matches on July 13 in Omaha, Neb., at Creighton University’s Morrison Stadium, live on ESPN at 8 p.m. CT, and on July 17 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn., live on Fox Soccer Channel at 7:30 p.m. ET.

With the USA ranked first in the current FIFA Women’s World Rankings and Sweden at fourth, U.S. fans will once again get to see two of the top women’s teams in the world square off on American soil. Sundhage has called up 24 players, she will name 18 to suit up for both contests with the Swedes and could juggle the game roster between matches.
