By Stefan Eriksson-Eriksson, ESPN Staff WriterThe Swedish women’s football team is looking to repeat the feat of last year, as it tries to clinch the title for the first time in a quarter-century, while defending champions FC Stockholm will try to reach the quarterfinals in the Champions League.
The women’s soccer team is a force to be reckoned with.
It won the World Cup, the European Championship and the Confederations Cup in 2017, and is now undefeated in four straight league matches, including a 2-0 win over FC Köln in the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarterfinals last week.
The team is the biggest winner of the league so far, with an average of 18 points per match, with a 2.1-point differential between league wins and losses.
The Swedish national team has won seven of the past eight World Cup qualifying games, and has qualified for the 2018 World Cup.
It also has the best goal differential (0.86 goals for and 0.91 goals against) of any World Cup qualifier, and the best scoring average of any qualifier.
The 2018 Women’s World Cup kicks off on June 14, when Sweden plays host to France in Stockholm.
The game will air live on ESPN2, with the full schedule to be announced on Tuesday.ESPN’s European Women’s Championship coverage will air on ESPN3 and ESPNU from June 21 to July 8.
