2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Third Place Soccer Betting Analysis
The key in this match will be how well England gets over losing to the United States. Up until the semifinals, the English had looked like the one team that could beat the U.S. Now that they’ve failed against the Americans, England must pick themselves up for this battle with Sweden.
Can the English pull it off? Absolutely, they can. The English are a formidable squad. The defense is lights out while they had a shot to draw with the U.S. if not for the missed penalty kick. The bottom line in this match is that the English are simply the better squad. Although they are already slightly over played in this, it’s too difficult to back the English on the handicap. The play is England to beat Sweden straight up in regulation.
