Missing the Women's World Cup? Don't worry, we've already got your 2023 outlook

LYON, France -- The U.S. women's national soccer team remains atop the sport after winning its second consecutive World Cup. But if American perseverance in 2019 proved anything, it was that 2023 will be even more difficult.

LYON, France -- The goal came from the unlikeliest of places.

RENNES, France -- The third time the question was asked, albeit in different words -- and in a new language -- it drew a sigh.

One day before Sweden was set to play Germany in the final quarterfinal match of this tournament, a reporter asked Swedish head coach Peter Gerhardsson why he believed his squad could beat the Germans, why this year would be any different than the past 24, and finally, if his team was frightened to play the No. 2 team in the world.
