Sweden can overcome the disappointment of finishing second in Group F to the U.S. by beating Canada in the last 16 of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup on Monday.

The match at the Parc des Princes in Paris will feature some of the best players at the tournament. Sweden No. 10 Sofia Jakobsson and goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl ensure Peter Gerhardsson's squad is strong at both ends of the pitch.

Meanwhile, the prolific Christine Sinclair's presence means Canada carry a potent enough threat to beat any team in the tournament.

Odds per Oddschecker.

Sweden were unfortunate to have been drawn alongside the United States during the group stage. While they couldn't keep pace with the free-scoring world champions, the Swedes still showcased their own technical flair.

Jakobsson is the creative fulcrum, and her passing, skill and vision represent the biggest challenges for the Canada defence. Her combination with gifted striker Kosovare Asllani is the main reason why Sweden will progress:

At the other end of the pitch, the 36-year-old Lindahl is still a capable presence in net. She is embracing a role as a leader:

Sinclair will hope to test Lindahl early. She was on the scoresheet during Thursday's 2-1 defeat to the Netherlands, which cost Canada top spot in Group E.

There is ample support for Sinclair along the forward line in the form of Jessie Fleming. The 21-year-old is an attack-minded midfielder who made an impression with some strong performances during the group stage.

If Fleming and Sinclair are allowed to combine early and often, Lindahl will find herself in for a busy night. There will be no shortage of goals in this one, but Jakobsson and Asllani should edge Sinclair and Fleming.
