The Swedish women soccer team went down fighting against Netherlands to avoid a rematch against the United States in the Women World Cup in France.

Jackie Groenen’s 99th minute goal settled matters as Netherlands dismissed Netherlands by a goal to nil after extra time.

Netherlands will face the US in Sunday’s final.

It had been a stalemate for most of the match, with Sweden soaking up pressure and the Netherlands struggling to break down the Swedish defensive and midfield blocks in front of them.

It was a tightly contested match but the Swedish side finally succumbed to the pressure.
