Rose Lavelle trying to break with the ball, holding her hands out beseechingly to everyone else like "where are you guys, what are you doing" kind of encapsulates the issues with the #USWNT right now #SWEvUSA
HT: 🇸🇪 1 - 🇺🇸 0
Lavelle hits the post late in the first half, but mostly the #USWNT should be pretty relieved this is a one-goal game and not a three-goal deficit they have to dig out from.
At one point shortly before Sweden scored, Rose Lavelle was running into Sweden's end and did an approximation of this emoji: 🤷 As if to say "where is everyone?" Abby Dahlkemper just did the same thing. The #USWNT is just losing the ball over and over. #Tokyo2020
Heath, Press and Morgan are looking average because of the tremendous work by Asllani, Angeldahl and Seger in the midfield shutting Horan, Mewis and LaVelle out completely.
Also, Sweden is very aware of the progression from the USWNT midfielders. They allowed them to pass sideways/backwards, but it's the progressive passes they try to avoid and block. Pass maps at half time by Sam Mewis, Horan and Lavelle. https://t.co/dIhDliqNfY
There’s a lot of excitement at Mount Notre Dame this morning where 100+ students are cheering on Rose Lavelle as she makes her Olympic debut! https://t.co/IPbo7yttK5
Sweden have dominated this whole match, holding the US scoreless and having a three goal lead! Davidson comes on for Dunn, while Kristie Mewis replaces Lavelle. 10 minutes to go!
#TokyoOlympics | 🇺🇸0-3🇸🇪
Horan probably has to be quite extreme in her movement, acting more like a decoy to pull Asllani to the sideline or center and open a lane to Press dropping or Lavelle coming over etc. Normal CM positioning won't cut it.
Kylie Lavelle was the leading scorer and hit the game-winning basket in overtime today when NEPA Elite Clark 17U girls opened the @SelectEventsBB
Summer Championships with a win over Loudoun Flight Showcase.
There's plenty of work to be done if the #USWNT is going to win Olympic gold.
The U.S. opens group play with a stunning and comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Sweden, which ends a 44-match unbeaten run that dated back to January 2019 👀
The moment early on when Rose Lavelle couldn't find anyone to pass the ball to and threw her hands up like 🤷 encapsulated the #USWNT's debut at #Tokyo2020 for me: https://t.co/e7vHiXXWSH
A rude awakening: Sweden comprehensively beat the #USWNT to open play at the Olympics, ending the U.S.'s 44-match unbeaten run in emphatic fashion
Creo que la anulación de Estados Unidos puede marcar una tendencia de cara a los próximos partidos. El que sigue es contra Australia, y va a ser una prueba de fuego. Equipo sin ideas. Lavelle y Press lo más alto, y paro de contar. Rapinoe entró bien pero de nada sirve sin ideas.
Just an overall bad and uncharacteristic performance. This honestly should have been 5-0. No play centrally going forward, long ball after long ball with no accuracy. Midfield creativity was nonexistent outside a few Lavelle runs. Its gonna be rough just getting out of the group
Defense that looked sketchy against Mexico got worked. Dunn was only bright spot in back.
Did not finish chances (Press, Lavelle, Morgan)
Team that relies on physicality probably should not be mainly older players.
1.The signs were there when they played a draw vrs Sweden in April this year. Without Julie Ertz in that holding midfield role the @USWNT
look light in that midfield and Sweden's pressing in the midfield didn't allow Lavelle, Horan & Mewis to have time on the ball.
Dunn, Lavelle, & Ertz were the only ones really hustling tonight. Wish we would’ve seen more movement and more agressive attacks forward. Hopefully USWNT gets it together by the next game
Our passing was shit other than that one great ball by Rose Lavelle and some good passes from Ertz and Davidson. Lets get it together for our next game. #uswnt #USAvSWE #TokyoOlympics #Olympics2021
FT. 🇸🇪 Suecia 3-0 USA 🇺🇸
• Adiós al invicto de 44 partidos
• Doblete de Blackstenius
• Asllani en modo diosa. Opacó a Horan, Mewis, Lavelle y solo Ertz pudo competirle en el 2T
• Muchísimos problemas defensivos para EE.UU.
• Baño táctico de Suecia a Vlatko
Lavelle's header off the post just before the half wasn't above average? or Morgan's weak header from around the 6yd box?
Thats great for her. I'm glad she has a talented writer. You should really be thanking Pardison for those #1's honey. But I am gonna go now. I hope your mind changes about music because just because a song is #1 doesn't mean its a good song. bye chile
Yes it’s a big deal because she ofc on about wild side and your coming about whole lotta money.
I never once said I didn't like @Normani
. In fact im a fan of her. She asked if we was streaming and I stated NO I am streaming Whole Lotta Money Remix. Big Deal?
Lavelle, Heath, Horan, and even Press lost unnecessary passes and dribbles being cheeky. Williams would have helped once US down by 1, because defense kept sending long passes to forwards who weren't making the runs that Williams does best.
Ya especially Lavelles at end of 1st half . I know Lavelle is good but I think her nerves were getting to her she looked sloppy with the ball she had a few giveaways :?
Mucho que cuestionar. La tarea era sinple, el dibujo táctico que había dejado Jill Ellis era el que se debía seguir. En el 2019 cuando llegaba un trazo al área estaba Alex, Lavelle, Mewis y Julie en el área, hoy estaba una estadounidense en medio de 4 suecas
En 1ère mi-temps , le milieu tu l'as pas , Lavelle a raté les 3-/4 de ses passes et S Mewis a fait une magnifique ouverture à 5 m de Morgan et Press
