Sweden Women will need to make the most of its training sessions to field an impressive team this week. The Swedes have excelled at the Olympics and are contenders for the gold medal this year.
Sweden Women laid down a marker with their historic performance against USA Women and could potentially be one of the favourites to win the gold medal this year. The Swedes were emphatic against Australia and have scored seven goals in their last two games.

Sweden Women are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
