Regardless of the result, home team Australia would record their best ever result at a World Cup anyway. But the bronze medal seemed far away after half an hour.
After a VAR intervention, the ball hit the spot for the Swedes. Rolfo put the ball neatly in the bottom corner.
The Australians did not lose heart, but mainly kept chasing after the facts. Sweden showed itself smarter and stronger and made it 2-0 after a great counter on the hour.
That double lead resulted in less chances and tension in the end. Sweden was able to control the match and barely got into trouble.
Just like at the previous World Cup, they again take home the bronze medal. For the Australians, ‘their’ World Cup ends without a medal, but fourth place is their best performance ever.
The final of the World Cup follows tomorrow at 12.00, with the final between Spain and England. You can follow this match on Canvas from 11.30 am.
