Sweden defeats newcomers Chile 2-0 after delay

Sweden defeats newcomers Chile 2-0 after delay

The United States National Women's Team begins their quest to become back-to-back World Cup champions Tuesday.

They had found Chile goalkeeper Christiane Endler an impenetrable wall until Asllani profited from a poor attempt to clear the ball by Camila Saez on 83 minutes and arrowed her shot into the top corner. "But I think the players that we've selected and the preparation has been excellent".

"When you go into a three-game mini-tournament you can't get beyond the first game", said United States coach Ellis.

This is not the first time that Ri, Hong and Kim have worked together at the Women's World Cup - the trio officiated three matches at the 2015 edition in Canada, including the third-place contest between Germany and England.

They are three of the 12 Asian referees and assistants selected to officiate at the 2019 Women's World Cup.

Of the current 24-girls roster, Carli Lloyd is the most experienced one and the oldest of the team with 36 years old, she has been in 18 Women's World Cup games, with a total of eight goals from which six were at the 2015 edition while Tierna Davidson is the youngest player of the team with 20-years-old.

Thailand have only previously played at one World Cup, winning one game, but will take heart from Argentina holding Japan to a scoreless draw on Monday.

It was also Morgan's first-ever World Cup hat trick.

Abby Wambach talked about how Morgan was going to be the team leader in an interview with USA Today Sports in 2013. They were also responsible for the memorable 1999 World Cup win on home soil in front of full stadiums.

In the same group earlier, Sweden scored two late goals to beat Chile 2-0 after a long hold-up in their match in Rennes because of a violent storm which led to conditions deteriorating. The toughest of those is Sweden, the country that knocked out the USA in the quarterfinals at the 2016 Olympics.

Morgan said she had just spotted Nild in the hallway and introduced herself.

"Excitement could be the best word to describe where I am personally and where our players are", Ellis told a press conference one day before they face Thailand in Group F. That's a big result against a Chile team that prioritized defense but couldn't hold on in the final moments.
