Sweden 2, U.S. 1: Sweden tops Group C

The USWNT heads to Wolfsburg to play Sweden to decide which team will top the Group C table. Both teams are already guaranteed passage into the knockout stages, but topping the group will probably mean avoiding Brazil in the quarterfinal, which looks an attractive option after Marta's performance against Norway at the weekend. She's the only player in the world so good that no one, not even the referee, cared that she'd blatantly knocked a Norwegian defender to the floor before scoring her first; you don't want to play that kind of showbiz just yet.

The game kicks off on Wednesday at 2.45 p.m. ET, so join me online from about 2.15 p.m. for live, interactive analysis of the action and a bit of Wednesday afternoon chitchat besides.
