USA Player Ratings

USA vs. Sweden Player Ratings (scale 1-10)

Hope Solo - 6 - Solid throughout.
Stephanie Lopez - 5 - Better performance.
Christie Rampone - 6 - Worked hard defending.
Cat Whitehill - 6 - Rarely challenged by mediocre Sweden.
Kate Markgraf - 5 - Same as Whitehill.
Leslie Osborne - 5 - Played within herself.
Carli Lloyd - 5 - Easier time against less mobile Swedes.
Lori Chalupny - 7 - Most effective US midfielder.
Abby Wambach - 7 - Worked hard, scorer of both goals.
Kristine Lilly - 6 - Quality pas to assist Wambach.
Lindsey Tarpley - 5 - Uneventful performance.

Greg Ryan - 5 - Ryan's tactical acumen was not tested by fitness-lacking, highly overrated Swedish team. It was almost amusing to watch Schellin play wide and the 5'2 Ljungberg chase down high balls in the middle.
Player of the Match - Abby Wambach
