Many believes that this is already the time for Sweden to get the glory they are aiming for, following their impressive run. This is already the fifth time that Sweden entered the semi-finals, so going here works for their advantage. They have the better experience here, considering their previous campaigns in the contest. Additionally, Sweden were once hailed as runners-up, which is the best finish for them, but they have yet to win the title. However, considering their run in the World Cup, it seems like the title is getting near for them. They currently have the momentum, which will surely work for their advantage. Moreover, their manager, Peter Gerhardsson, is confident that they have what it takes to win the title. In fact, they were able to defeat two former champions, USA, and Japan, which is a proof of their might.

Sweden might use the same line-up coming into this match, as they are looking for consistency in this important match. Ilestedt is looking to lead their defense, while Stina Blackstenius will continue leading their attacks.
