The World Cup grand finale is upon us, but first a battle for bronze is on the line between England and Sweden in today’s third place match.

Sweden finds themselves in the third place match after pushing Netherlands into extra time during their semifinal. A goal in the 99th minute of extra time would be all that was needed to push the Netherlands through to the World Cup final. Sweden find their tournament journey nearly over, with a chance to medal for their country for the fourth time.

England’s arrival to the third place match comes after a thrilling semifinal match against the United States. It was a game the Lionesses lost, 2-1, but the game held opportunity for them to carve their path to the final. Unfortunately, a missed late game penalty kick was the difference between potential extra time and a loss. No strangers to a third place match, England won the World Cup bronze in the 2015.
