Match Report (AP)

Why is this result being described as an "upset"? Many predicted Brazil would win, but does that make it an upset when they didn't win?

Sweden was ranked 5th and Brazil 6th in FIFA's last rankings. Why the big surprise when Sweden wins?

I predicted Sweden to win this one as they are a strong side and have been getting better since there loss to the US. Now they have Canada to deal with in the next round.

Let's hope.


Our Xtratime Poll voters incorrectly picked Brazil to win this match:
