Lotta Schelin scored one goal and set up another Sunday as Sweden beat Australia 3-1 to reach the semifinals at the women's World Cup.

Having set up Therese Sjogran for the opening goal in the 11th minute, Schelin made the match safe in the 52nd. She capitalized on a poor back pass from Kim Carroll, took one touch past goalkeeper Melissa Barbieri before slotting the ball into the unguarded net.

Lisa Dahlkvist scored Sweden's second goal in the 16th in front of 24,605 fans, before Ellyse Perry briefly gave Australia hope with a stunning effort in the 40th.

Japan upset host Germany in another quarterfinal and will play Sweden on Wednesday.

Brazil plays the United States in Sunday's other quarterfinal.
