Losing to Sweden has forced an earlier-than-anticipated showdown with fellow world power Brazil. With Germany having been eliminated, today's winner will feel that they are the hands-down favorite to hoist the trophy next Sunday. The loser will have fallen well below expectations.
The United States desperately needs a spark at forward, where Amy Rodriguez and Abby Wambach have combined for just one goal and countless wasted chances. Team changes are very likely, but that doesn't necessarily mean the inclusion of Alex Morgan, though she acquitted herself reasonably well in the 2nd half against Sweden.
Enjoy this battle of soccer titans. USA!
