Looking to repeat its 2011 success, Sweden begins the 2015 Women’s World Cup against Nigeria on Monday afternoon.
The Swedes finished third in Germany, losing to eventual champion Japan in the semifinals. Now at the helm, they have former United States head coach Pia Sundhage, who led the Americans to a pair of Olympic gold medals, as well as a second-place finish at the 2011 World Cup. They don’t score a ton of goals, but their ability to control possession and defend led to a near-perfect qualifying campaign. As a result, Sweden is the favorite to escape Group D behind the United States.
That doesn’t mean Nigeria will be a pushover, though. Led by rising superstar Asisat Oshoala, the Super Falcons have the attacking options to challenge Sweden’s stingy defense.
The game is at 4 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FOX. Here’s how to watch online and on mobile:
