The Women’s World Cup final stage is set, but we’re still eager to see which team will walk away with the third-place title. If you’re just as excited and wondering how to watch a free Australia vs. Sweden live stream, we’ll lay out your best options to watch this Women’s World Cup match online. 

Sweden lost 2-1 after Spain’s Olga Carmona fired a sensational last-minute dagger into the goal to spite the Swede’s late equalizer just seconds earlier. Australia’s Sam Kerr got her first goal of the World Cup against England to tie the game at 63 minutes, but Australia eventually lost out 3-1. This third-place matchup may not award the crowning achievement either country wanted, but it still gives one of these teams a chance to avoid walking away empty-handed. Read on for your options to watch the Women’s World Cup third-place match live stream.

There are multiple free live streams below for a few different countries. If you’re not in one of those countries, though, you must use a VPN, as detailed further down this article, to get around the geo-blockers that will stop you from watching too.

How to watch Australia vs. Sweden Women’s World Cup free live stream from anywhere 

*A quick note for Australians: you might find the match on 7 Plus too. We’re seeing a lot of conflicting reports that Optus Sports has it locked down for streaming. However, you should find it on channel seven on your TV, so we likely think it will be available on 7 Plus (online). So yes, you should be able to watch it for free in Australia too. The final is already scheduled to show on 7 Plus on Sunday too.

While most regions should show both of the remaining Women’s World Cup matchups on free television, yours may not. In Sweden (Viaplay), and the United States (Fox and Peacock), your only streaming options are blocked by paywalls. If that’s your situation, you can try tuning into the UK coverage. ITVX will stream Australia vs. Sweden online for free. 

Be warned, if you’re not in the UK when you try to watch, you’ll be blocked by geographical restrictions. But you can easily access these free live streams using a VPN to simulate your viewing device in the UK.

You can pick up Express VPN, save 49% on the usual price, and get three months for free. If you’re unsatisfied, there’s a hassle-free 30-day money-back guarantee.
