The US Women's Soccer team looked completely uninspired today in their 1-2 loss to Sweden. Flat flat flat. And when it got down to the last ten minutes plus stoppage time, they looked like a team content to allow the game to go down as a loss; there was no sense of urgency in turning to the attack, and they were out of position so that when they got the ball deep in Sweden's end, no one covered the top corners to prevent Sweden from clearing.

If we don't see better in the quarters, it's going to be one and done.
