June 20 (UPI) -- The U.S. Women's National Team moved to the round of 16 in the soccer World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Sweden on Thursday at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre, France.
It took 3 minutes for the U.S. women, who became the Group F champions, to score their first goal on Lindsey Horan's strike.
The United States made it 2-0 5 minutes into the second half when Swedish player Jonna Andersson deflected U.S. midfielder Tobin Heath's shot into Sweden's goal.
The United States will play Group B runner-up Spain on Monday at noon EDT. Spain scored three goals -- all in a 3-1 victory over South Africa -- in Group B play.
Thursday's victory counted as a bit of revenge for the Americans, who lost to Sweden in the 2016 Olympics.
The United States outscored opponents 18-0 in Group F play.
The U.S. women needed to win or draw to finish above Sweden in Group F. They instead pulled off their third consecutive shutout.
"It's huge and a big part of what we're trying to do both offensively and defensively," Heath said. "We talk about the idea of 360-degree defending where everyone is defending."
