LE HAVRE, France — An early goal by Lindsey Horan and an own goal by Sweden carried the United States to a 2-0 victory at the World Cup on Thursday, the third consecutive dominant performance by the Americans in defense of their world title.

Horan scored on a goalmouth scrambed in the third minutes and Jonna Andersson was credited with an own goal after deflecting in a hard, tight-angle shot by Tobin Heath in the 50th minute.

The Americans advanced to a game against Spain on Monday in the round of 16 in Reims. If they win there, they will play host France in the quarterfinals.
