A Swedish national cup team is taking on America’s national team for the first time in their history in an event that will test their abilities to overcome an American defense that has already taken a step back from world football.
It was the first game between the two teams and the first since Sweden’s men’s team won gold at the 2012 Olympics.
The match is scheduled for Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the Stadion Trier Stadium in Karlskrona, a town near Stockholm.
The United States had won gold in the 2008 Beijing Games.
The U.S. team is led by midfielder Josh Wolff, who scored the opening goal in the 5-1 win over Sweden.
The Americans have not lost since the first match, against Sweden, in the 2015 World Cup.
The Swedes, who are in the second round of the World Cup, are also on the verge of making history.
They have won four of their past five matches.
Their goal was a 3-0 win over Germany in the final in a penalty shootout in front of a sold-out crowd at the Wembley Stadium in London.
The American players will be without their captain, Clint Dempsey, who was suspended for the match for biting Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci in the face after a controversial goal celebration.
They also lost midfielder Fabian Johnson, who injured his knee in the match.
The US players have been struggling to find chemistry, even though they are playing for a team that won the World Cups gold medal in 2008 and 2011.
It is a big step forward for the USMNT, which has struggled in the first four games.
But it is not all bad news.
The game is being played at the World Club Championships in Sweden.
A full tournament will be held in the U.K. on July 20.
