FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011 – Group C

SWEDEN (2-0-0, 6 points) vs. UNITED STATES (2-0-0, 6 points)

Kickoff: Wednesday, 2:45 p.m. EDT
Arena Im Allerpark – Wolfsburg
Line: United States -200, Sweden +475, Tie +310
Over/Under: 2.5 Goals (Over -125, Under -111)

Group C of the 2011 Women’s World Cup concludes Wednesday with group leaders Sweden and United States squaring off, while a pair of winless teams, North Korea and Colombia, look to exit the World Cup on a high note. Sports scores.

Sweden and the United States are familiar foes, having met 29 times previously, including three meetings in World Cup play. The Americans prevailed in all three matches, winning 3-2 in 1991, 3-1 in 2003 and 2-0 in last year’s tournament. With a +5 goal differential in this World Cup, the UNITED STATES have dominated, and should beat Sweden again. Although neither team has allowed a goal this tournament, expect the offenses to shine and eclipse the total with the OVER occurring.

Sweden will be playing short-handed Wednesday as captain Caroline Seger cannot play due to drawing a yellow card in each of the first two matches. Although Sweden won both of its games by a 1-0 margin, it lost the time of possession in both victories. The Swedes have also committed 29 fouls to just 10 for their opponents. But the defense has been stellar, allowing a mere four shots on goal during the tournament.

U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage is one of the best Swedish players of all-time with 71 goals for them in international play. She also played against the United States in the 1991 World Cup. Her familiarity with the Swedes style of play can only help the Americans on Wednesday. The U.S. has outscored its opponents 5-0 in this tournament, with five different goal scorers. The team’s best scorer, Abby Wambach, has not found the back of the net though, missing several close-in chances in the win over Colombia. She is nursing a sore Achilles and may be limited on Wednesday. Betting lines.

NORTH KOREA (0-2-0, 0 points) vs. COLOMBIA (0-2-0, 0 points)

Kickoff: Wednesday, 2:45 p.m. EDT
FIFA Women’s World Cup Stadium – Bochum
Line: North Korea -250, Colombia +575, Tie +350
Over/Under: 2.5 Goals (Over -111, Under -125)

North Korea and Colombia will meet for the first time ever when both countries close out their World Cup appearances on Wednesday. Both teams have been held scoreless thus far, making the UNDER a good value at -125. In terms of who will win this match, considering both teams are young and don’t want to leave Germany without a point, the 7-to-2 payoff looks good for a 1-1 TIE. North Korea is finishing up its fourth World Cup appearance, but it has never played a South American team in this tournament. The North Koreans are 3-8-1 all-time in World Cup play, so they are a bit more experienced than the Colombians, who are finishing off their first World Cup appearance. Odds.

Both of these nations have teenage future stars to watch for in this match. Kim Su-Gyong is a 16-year-old midfielder for North Korea who has great understanding of how this game should be played. Forward Yoreli Rincon, 17 years old, needs to be more aggressive on the attack for Colombia.
