On the surface, a narrow 1-0 win over Sweden may not seem like much to get excited about. After all, the U.S. are supposed to be the dominant force in women's football, and after the embarrassing showing at the SheBelieves Cup, fans expected a return to form.

But Thursday's win―courtesy of a goal from Rose Lavelle, who made her international debut earlier this year―was the team's first against Sweden since former coach Pia Sundhage took the reins for the Scandinavian nation in 2012.

It also marked the first meeting between the two teams since last year's Summer Olympics. By all accounts, revenge on Swedish soil will have been a momentum-booster for the Stars and Stripes.

Ann Odong of The Women's Game noted there were issues, however, especially on the defensive end:

With the exception of Ali Krieger, most of the team's experienced defenders were called up and traveled to Europe. The U.S. shouldn't give up this many chances to any team, whether they're as talented as Sweden or not.

Norway's squad features plenty of veteran talent, with the 37-year-old Ingrid Hjelmseth the most senior member. Ada Hegerberg is the team's star player and leading scorer, a remarkable achievement given she's just 21.

The hosts should provide the Stars and Stripes with another stern test, and the U.S. defence will have the opportunity to show improvements against some class competition. If they can shut out Norway, it should provide another major confidence boost.
