Three earlier matches ended in draws, one, at the 2014 Algarve Cup, in a 1-0 Swedish victory.
Rose Lavelle, who scored the game’s only goal, was the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft. An All-American from the University of Wisconsin, she was selected by the Boston Breakers.
Sweden is ranked sixth in the world; the United States is No. 2, behind Germany. The next rankings come out on June 23.
