    USWNT vs. New Zealand result: U.S. women pour on the goals, move into second place at Olympics | Sporting News

    united states women’s national soccer team took care of business, rebounding from a deflated 3-0 loss to sweden with a resounding 6-1 victory over new zealand that lifted them to second place in group g with a game to play.

    the uswnt is now tied with australia on points (three points), but wins the tiebreaker on goal difference (+2 vs. australia -1). a win or draw against australia will be enough to secure second place behind sweden, who are flying. The Swedes followed up their 3-0 victory over the United States with a 4-2 win over Australia.

    but finishing second in group g was never ideal. Here’s why: The quarterfinal matchup would see them meet the other favorite for the gold medal, no. the netherlands in 4th place. it would be a rematch of the 2019 world cup final, which the united states won 2-0.
