Women's World Cup / Matchday 1
Parc des Princes / 24.06.2019
End of 2nd Half
Lawrence's shot hit the arm of Fischer but the check is OVER! Sweden are through!
Leon takes the free-kick and Labbe is up for this, The ball is swung in and Sweden clear it at the far post, but there's time for the corner!
In it comes from Leon, the shot comes in from Lawrence and the ball hits an arm as the referee blows for full-time. The celebrations begin but are they premature. Canada are claiming for a handball, and this is being revieweed. Do they have a penalty?!
Canada are striving for the spaces, but it just won't open up for them. It looks like being an 11th straight defeat against European opposition on foreign soil.
But what's this? Quinn feeds it in, and the referee gives Canada a free-kick right on the edge of the box for a foul on Lawrence by Glas. How costly could that prove for Sweden...
SUB! Sweden are almost there and they try to waste some more time by bringing on a final substitution as Anvegard comes on for Blackstenius.
CHANCE! Jakobsson gets free down the right, and this time the ball across misses out Buchanan and Schmidt's excellent tracking just denies Asllani the chance to shoot!
CHANCE! Sinclair finds the pass after getting down the right but Schmidt blazes high and wide! It was a good opening!
We're into a minimum of SEVEN added minutes....
SUB! Time is very much against Canada now as Lina Hurtig comes on for Rolfo.
OFF THE LINE! So nearly it's game over as Asllani meets the cut-back 10 yards out but Scott gets back brilliantly to clear off the line!
BOOKED! Blackstenius has really come to the fore this half, and she wins a free-kick deep in Canadian territory as Buchanan goes into the book. She'll miss the game against Germany if Canada progress.
SUBS! Canada make a double change as Quinn and Riviere are on, making way are Chapman and Beckie.
NO PENALTY! Would you believe it! Sweden were offside in the lead-up to the penalty, and that's why the spot-kick has been ruled out. It's the right call.
The right foot of Blackstenius was in an offside position.
PENALTY SWEDEN! Rolfo is taken out by Lawrence and the referee points to the spot.
There was a scissor movement there, but the decison is being checked by VAR...
Asllani stands over this free-kick. It's an inswinger, it's a nice flick on by Rolfo and Labbe makes the save!
Sweden are playing the ball around nicely as they ready their first change of the night with Bjorn warming up.
SUB! Lawrence concedes a silly foul on Asllani as Sweden have the free-kick in a good position. Rubensson makes way.
CLOSE! Rubensson has had a fien game for Sweden as she scampers down the right and looks for Blackstenius but Buchanan does well to cut out the danger.
Jacewicz checks and Lindahl did have at least one part of her body on the line. An even more impressive save!
Sweden look to heap more misery on Canada as Rolfo gets inside the box down the left but she can only fire into the side-netting!
Lindahl becomes the first Swedish goalkeeper to ever save a penalty at a Women's World Cup.
PENALTY SAVED!!! Beckie takes it, fires it to Lindahl's right, she springs across and makes a superb save!!
