TOKYO, Aug. 6 Three consecutive maximum penalties were close to defeat, but Sweden’s Caroline Seker changed the story by increasing the fifth pitch.
The aroma was clear from beginning to end. No team wanted to risk more than the account, it was the Scandinavian team that, as usual in the rest of the tournament, took the initiative.
This movement of the ball was combined with looking for a shot on goal after getting a little chance, ending with 10 shots during the first half. The first is already a warning. In the 9th minute Jacobson’s cross, Eriksen, left – back, hit first, along with that area, and his shot went wide.
You can’t make mistakes in the final, and every team fined us. Paid first by Canada, he resisted the Swedish attack, until the Queen believed the ball was out, losing it and putting his defense out of place. Aslani put the ball to Blackstenius for the sixth goal of the match.
Until Sweden gives it extra life, the North American team will not look back. Sinclair was fined when he tried to move ahead of the Ilestedt area, but it was too late, but although Russian arbitrator Anastasia Pustovoytova did not see it at first, the Video Arbitration Organization (VAR) did its job and imposed the maximum penalty.
Fleming did his job and in the 66m he raised the suspicion of the Scandinavian team 1-1. He lost the lead almost two minutes after Lindale’s poor start, but Jorn was able to take the ball out of the small box before pushing it towards the goal.
The tense silence returned, until m.89 until the previous situation was reversed. This time Sweden were 2-1 in Aslani’s boots, but Buchanan avoided danger in time.
In overtime, both teams showed fatigue and fear of failure. But Sweden had the upper hand to win last time. The first three times using multiple rejections, after all, could not connect well even if alone in that area on a hardik title at 118m.
Enthusiasm for not having extra time is fine. Sweden’s Aslani failed. Against all odds, Carolyn Seker missed out on the chance to present Sweden with her first Olympic gold, sending the fifth pitch into the turn of the tables.
The Scandinavians lost their fourth, fifth and sixth sentences, two saves by Stephanie Lape, and Julie Angela Grosso, in her 20s, scored Canada’s final and historic goal. The United States completes the stage of the Olympic Games to win a bronze medal.
