It’s the game in which neither side wished to be when the semifinals kicked off earlier this week, but it’s the cold, harsh reality of the 2019 Womens World Cup for England and Sweden.

With the final 24 hours away on Sunday, England and Sweden are set to battle in the third-place game — A.K.A., where Golden Boots are won — on Saturday (11 a.m. ET) in Nice, France. England lost to the USWNT on Tuesday, a day before Sweden fell at the hands of the Netherlands.

England’s Ellen White sits level with Alex Morgan (six goals each) in the race for the Golden Boot. White, who’s in the lineup for the Three Lionesses, will be gunning for one or two more goals in this one; if Sweden aren’t all the way up for the exercise that is the third-place game, the opportunity to snatch the trophy away from Morgan will surely present itself.
