The United States defeated North Korea 2-0 and Sweden topped Colombia 1-0 on the opening day of Group B play. Here’s the WWC Daily for June 28, with match highlight.
Just as a reminder, Jenna Pel and I are splitting coverage of the tournament over at FOX Soccer, so on average, you’ll see my full analysis of the day’s action over there every other day. That includes Tuesday’s action. Click here to check out how Pia Sundhage made a brilliant and surprising change to the line-up and how Sweden is looking ahead of a critical game against North Korea.
News and Notes:
Colombia goalkeeper Yineth Varon was suspended for failing a drug test.
Meanwhile, Equatorial Guinea striker Jade Boho was suspended over eligibility issues.
And a quick word on TV ratings, which have been great.
