USA wins close match over Sweden

Goals: 0-1 Carli Lloyd (39)

Sweden's head coach Thomas Dennerby declared after the match that he, in spite of the narrow loss, was very pleased with his team's performance: ”I'm really pleased with all the players today”.
USA never managed to take charge in the match, where Sweden played a very aggressive defensive high in the field. The first half showed good play from both sides with fast turns and good combinations in attack. USA's goal came from one of fairly few good chances from their side, as Sweden's maybe not quite coordinated defense let Carli Lloyd travel through the area unattacked. Her shot touched a Swedish defender and the changed direction caught Hedvig Lindahl on the wrong side. The match slowed down somewhat in the second half, as the American side seemed less attacking minded and more concerned of holdning on to their lead. Maybe a bit of travel fatigue?
Therese Sjögran was without doubt Sweden's player of the match, intelligent and composed, always dangerous on set pieces. She just lacked a bit of power and accuracy in front of goal. Lotta Schelin still didn't seem fully recovered from her early season injuries, but showed good initiatives. When she was traded for Hanna Ljungberg after about 60 minutes, Sweden's attack lost some of it's strength.
Dennerby used all his six possible substitutions and tried out all his defenders, probably in a last minute effort to decide which of the seven players to drop when he announces the player roster for the Olympic games Sunday evening. I don't know if it helped that much – all did well even if Sara Larsson had to leave early with a thigh muscle contusion. On the outsides Frida Östberg and Sara Thunebro did well, defensively but in particular in the attack.

it was a good day. i thought sweden did a good job of keeping with them and in fact, they could have ended up on top with a little bit more luck. can't wait for the olympics.

Luxury fashion brand Burberry, where a beaded keyring [b][url=]burberry check hobo[/url][/b] tassle costs £250 and an alligator handbag £14,000, raked in sales of £574m in the three months to the end of December – 22% ahead of 2010 levels.

The 156-year-old seller of raincoats and leather goods known [b][url=]burberry nylon tote[/url][/b] for its trademark beige check, said shoppers in southern Europe were showing the strain and there was a sharp slowdown in the US as it cut back on [b][url=]burberry check tote[/url][/b] sending goods to American department stores to sell through their discount outlets.

But sales to the Asia-Pacific [b][url=]burberry nova tote[/url][/b] region jumped 39% to £210m and demand from tourists – many of them Asian – visiting stores in London, Paris and Hong Kong remains high.

The shares, which were changing hands at around 200p just after the demise of Lehmans in 2008, closed marginally ahead at 1301p.
