England 1-2 Sweden Football Highlights
Goal : 11′ 0 – 1 Kosovare Asllani
Sweden get a goal early here..
A wayward cross into the England area looks to be routinely dealt with but Greenwood’s hooked clearance falls for Kosovare Asllani in acres of space on the edge of the box, and her low near-post effort gets through Telford’s defences to give Sweden a deserved lead.
Goal : 22′ 0 – 2 Sofia Jakobsson
England are definitely going to need more going forward now, as Sofia Jakobsson doubles Sweden’s lead in style.
The winger picks up the ball in the final third and, with the England defence standing off her, she has all the time in the world to curl a beautiful effort into far corner which leaves Telford with no chance.
England have a mountain to climb here and we’re only at the midway point of the first half.
Goal : 31′ Fran Kirby 1 – 2
Lifeline for England as Fran Kirby opens her World Cup account with a stunning individual effort.
Kirby times her run perfectly to stay onside, takes the ball in her stride before skipping inside Sembrant and finds the back of the net via the post with a crisp curling effort.
