U.S. head coach Vlatko Andonovski said the defeat was unexpected but admitted that his team was outperformed by Sweden in many aspects.
“We have put ourselves in a big hole and we could only be the ones to get ourselves out of it,” he told a post-match press conference. “We will have to get positive results in the next two games, it’s not going to be easy but there’s still a chance and I know this team is not going to give up.”
In the other match of Group G, Australia scored two first-half goals to beat New Zealand 2-1.
In Group E, striker Ellen White scored a brace as Great Britain defeated Chile 2-0, while host Japan salvaged a late goal against Canada to tie 1-1.
