Both teams had to settle for the runner-up position in the group stage, with both losing their final group game. Sweden went down to a 2-0 defeat to defending World Cup holders, the USA, while Canada suffered a 2-1 loss to the current European champions, the Netherlands.
Sweden and Canada last met as recently as March in the 3rd place play-off in the Algarve Cup, with Canada winning 6-5 on penalties after a goalless draw. There’s little reason to suggest that this game will be anything other than another tight and fiercely competitive game given what’s at stake.
