Sweden is up today at 15.00 Canadian time (Winnipeg) against Nigeria.  Heja Sverige!

Update - Germany slayed Sweden (4 - 1) so they're out.  America will be playing China for the first time since 1999 on June 26th at 19.30 Winnepeg time, and Germany will be sparring off against France.  As Fifa.com states:
It has taken 16 years but finally USA and China PR will meet again on the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ stage. The 1999 Final remains a milestone moment for women’s football, with two well-matched teams doing battle in front of a 90,185 crowd; a figure which remains a world record for a women’s football match. USA triumphed by the slimmest margin that day – 5-4 on penalties after 120 scoreless minutes – and now Ottawa will host the two nations on Friday with a berth in the last-four at Canada 2015 the rich prize awaiting the victor.
