Match Preview

Sweden struck late against Chile in their World Cup (WC) opener, scoring twice after the 80th minute to win 2-0. That victory was Sweden’s first WC win since July 2011, and ended a run of four winless games at this tournament (D3, L1).
However the ‘Blue and Yellow’ are unbeaten in eight of their 12 previous WC encounters against Asian Football Confederation opposition (W8, D1, L3), with their last such meeting ending 1-1 vs Australia in 2015.
Thailand were humiliated as they fell to a 13-0 defeat at the hands of the USA during their Group F opener – the heaviest ever loss at any WC tournament (men’s included). Having now conceded 23 goals across their four previous WC games, at an average of 5.75 goals per match, the Southeast Asian nation now possess the tournament’s worst such average.
Moreover, Thailand have lost both of their previous WC encounters versus European nations by a 4-0 scoreline (against Norway and Germany in 2015). Additionally, on matchday one, Thailand attempted the fewest shots (two) amongst all the competing teams so far, both were nonetheless on target.
Players to watch: Nilla Fischer netted at the last two WC tournaments she has appeared at, scoring a first-half goal each time. Sweden went unbeaten in both games she scored in (W1, D1).
Kanjana Sungngoen sealed Thailand’s 2015 WC qualification with two second-half goals versus Vietnam (2-1). She repeated that success on the road to France as her nation’s top qualifying goalscorer (four goals).
Stat attack: Sweden have scored in the final ten minutes in each of their last three fixtures.
Sweden have also registered a clean sheet in each of their previous three fixtures.
This calendar year, Thailand (FIFA rank: #34) have won just one game (W1, L6). They lost five matches to nations ranked higher than them, conceding two or more goals each time.
