Spain 1 | United States 2

Reign FC forward Megan Rapinoe scored two goals on two penalty kicks to lead the United States into the quarterfinals with a 2-1 win over Spain. Rapinoe scored her first in just the seventh minute, but Spain equalized immediately on a goal by Jennifer Hermoso.

The score remained deadlocked well into the second half before Spain was called for a foul in the box. VAR confirmed the penalty, and Rapinoe scored the game-winner in the 75th minute.

The United States will face France in the quarterfinals in Paris on Friday.

 

 

 

Sweden 1 | Canada 0

Sweden knocked out Canada 1-0 on a goal from Stina Blackstenius in the 55th minute. Canada was awarded a penalty kick and a chance to equalize after Sweden was called for a handball in the box, but Janine Beckie‘s shot was saved by Sweden goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl in the 69th minute.

Sweden will face Germany in the quarterfinals in Rennes on Saturday.
