    [Women's World Cup] The world's strongest USA advances to the round of 16 after drawing with Portugal for second place in the group


    The world's strongest USA, which is challenging its third consecutive FIFA Women's World Cup title, has advanced to the round of 16 by finishing second in its group.


    The United States, ranked first in FIFA rankings, drew 0-0 with Portugal (ranked 21st in FIFA rankings) in Group E 3rd match of the 2023 FIFA Australia New Zealand Women's World Cup group stage held at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand on the 1st. 온라인카지노


    After a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands (9th in FIFA rankings) on July 27, the USA advanced to the round of 16 with 1 win, 2 draws, 5 points and 2nd place in the group.


    1st place in Group E was the Netherlands (2 wins, 1 draw), who defeated Vietnam (32nd in FIFA rankings) 7-0 that day.


    This is the first time that the U.S. has only won one game in the group stage of the Women's World Cup.


    In the previous eight tournaments, they won at least two wins each in the group stage, and there were four cases where they won all three matches.


    The United States' previous minimum score in the group stage of the Women's World Cup was 2-1 in the 2011 tournament.


    1st place in Group E, the Netherlands, will compete for 2nd place in Group G, and 2nd place in Group E, the United States, will compete for 1st place in Group G to advance to the quarterfinals.


    In Group G, Sweden is in first place with 2 wins and Italy is in second place with 1 win and 1 loss.


    The U.S. did not lose the lead in the game against Portugal overall, with 13-5 in shooting and 4-0 in effective shooting, but a decisive shot did not come out.


    Rather, in extra time in the second half, Portugal's Ana Capeta's shot hit the post, and if this shot had led to a goal, the United States would have been eliminated from the group stage.


    Portugal, who had 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, was eliminated in the group at 3rd place, and Vietnam lost all 3 matches.


    The USA, runner-up in 2011 and champions in 2015 and 2019, aims to advance to the finals for the fourth time in a row and win the championship three times in a row.
