After a sluggish opening game (a 3-1 victory over Austrlia) where the team's play has been widely criticized, Team USA will look to have a better outing against Sweden today. A win tonight would secure US a spot out of the group stage (final game in group stage is against Nigeria).

Playing for the first time since April, Alex Morgan came into the Austrlia game on Monday in the 79th, right after the US has gone up by a score of 3-1. With her fitness improving, will US head coach Jill Ellis put Morgan in the starting lineup today?
Game 1 in the books!!! Thanks for all the support. Felt great to get some minutes with the team and most importantly a big WIN!! #USWNT— Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) June 9, 2015
