The United States still has some light work to do if it wishes to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2015 Women's World Cup. After winning their first game against Australia, they settled for a disappointing draw against former coach Pia Sundhage and Sweden. The USWNT face Nigeria who sit in fourth place in Group D with just one point.
The Lady Yanks sit in first place in their group with four points, while Australia trail by just a point. Sweden round out the group in third place with just two points from their first two games.
While the U.S. hasn't mathematically clinched a Round of 16 birth just yet, it would take a massive disaster for them to miss out. With four of six third place group finishers advancing, they could conceivably lose against Nigeria and still advance depending on other results.
A draw for the Americans would clinch at least second place in the group, and of course a win would keep them atop the group as its winner. Winning the group is of utmost importance to the U.S. as the second place finisher of their group will most likely have to deal with powerhouse Brazil in the Round of 16.
The final group game with Nigeria kicks off at 8 p.m. ET and will air once again on big FOX. A one-hour preview show will precede the game.
