Edwin Okon has switched to a diamond midfield and was busy trying the new system in the warm up games against Canada and Woodbridge FC. The new formation worked especially the marking from the zones, while Pia Sundhage is expected to do some shuffling in her starting XI.
Sweden (4-3-3): Carola Söberg, Elin Rubensson, Nilla Fischer, Emma Berglund, Charlotte Rohlin, Caroline Seger, Sofia Jakobsson, Lisa Dahlkvist, Therese Sjögran, Lotta Schelin, Kosovare Asllani Nigeria (4-4-2): Ibubeleye Whyte, Osinachi Ohale, Ebere Ngozi, Josephine Chukwunonye, Onome Ebi, Evelyn Nwabuoku, Halimatu Ayinde, Ngozi Okobi, Francisca Ordega, Asisat Oshoala, Desire Oparanozie
Expert Edge: These teams are too even to separate, and ultimately, that will see them knock each other out of this tournament before they really get started. A draw should suit the neutrals.
