Women’s World Cup: Sweden Reach Last Eight

Sweden beat Canada 1-0 in a hard-fought game to set up a Women’s World Cup quarter-final against Germany.

 

After a dull first half in Paris, Stina Blackstenius clipped the ball over keeper Stephanie Labbe to score with the game’s first shot on target.

 

Canada had the opportunity to equalise from a penalty, given for a handball, but Janine Beckie’s effort was brilliantly saved by Hedvig Lindahl.

 

Sweden rarely looked threatened as Canada struggled to create chance.
