Sweden Prevails over USA in Women’s World Cup Round of 16

In a tense Women’s World Cup Round of 16 matchup, Sweden edged out the United States in a dramatic finish that hinged on mere centimeters. Lina Hurtig, the 14th player to step up to the mark, unleashed a powerful shot towards U.S. goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Despite Naeher’s efforts to push the ball away, it struck the top of the post and crossed the goal line upon its descent. After a nerve-wracking wait, the referees confirmed the goal, securing Sweden’s victory.
