@Jimbo JetSet Ah, I see what you mean! You are saying the women are so bad, they would lose to Grimsby Town!s mens team! Yes they would! But now the world is like this, there are two sorts of people, one group is called men and one group is called wo-men! They are not alike! One group have tits and not as strong muscles. Guess who they are! That is why they can not play each other, it would not be fair to the more beautiful ones with titties! That is why the ones with tits play against other teams with tits!!!!

Time for new WC champions. It’s England or the Netherlands for me. Only question is; will it be the white/red Lionesses 🦁 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 or orange Lionesses. 🦁 🇳🇱 Sweden is very impressive as well. Of course the USA is incredibly talented too. It’s football, anything is possible, hard work/ team work can overcome even the most talented squads.

Of course the US will win! Why? Because they are Americans, and everybody knows the American race is superior to all other human beings! That is why they have won every World Cup and every Tournament that has ever been played, and naturally they will win this World Cup and every World Cup in the future! They are invincible, they have never lost a game, except against Sweden in the last Olympics, and they will never lose a single game in the future, till the end of time! God bless America! The best country on earth!

Even though France scored four goals against Korea, they were not that impressive at all. we will have to see each team from around the world play to make an assessment.

@My Space We'll see. As I said, we can only judge that once each team plays, but compared even to America 4 years ago, France looks slightly better. (almost no unforced errors, inventive and cursive passing etc) I've only watched highlights of women's football every now and then since the last WC, so likely other teams have improved as well, but my point was that France still dominated completely tonight, which is impressive.

@Vict0r1984 You can't judge by that, there are other teams who can do better than that.

Vict0r1984
Vict0r1984

Not that impressive? They had over 20 shots (and at least 7 on goal) and over 60 percent of possesion, while Korea had 2 shots, none on goal. They ran rings around the Korean defense and in the 2nd half they weren't even playing seriously anymore - just passing the ball around as it was 3-0 and Korea still couldn't create a single chance. If you wantched women's football a few years ago and compare it to this, France is looking like one of the top favorites! It could also be the case many teams have improved so I agree we'll have to see each team, but France definitely were impressive tonight!

USWNT is a favourite in every tournament ! But please don`t underestimate the other teams. They train hard, they have developed technically and conditionally and so no one should not underestimate they. I hope we will see great and fair games in sign of friendship and at the End the best Team will win the Cup. I think US will play the Final against..... ? Everything is possible !

@L Martinez Hi, you are right. But sometimes and with a little luck a little Nation can do great things. See the last Mans worldcup with croatica in the final. Our great national Trainer Sepp Herberger had said: Der Ball ist rund und ein Spiel dauert 90 Minuten. ( the Ball is round and a game goes for 90 minutes) that means: in 90 minutes all is possible. We will se! And if i be right the next game in the worldcup is Germany against Brasil. Germ. Wins their group and Brasil only the third in their group. So we have two of the Best teams in the world in a game in round 2 and the looser will go home. Thats Football!😐

Japan beat Australia just one year ago in the Asian cup final, you know? (that on top of being the current world cup vice-chapions...) Whereas New Zealand for example just beat England in a pre-tournament friendly! Australia is below Germany by any metric and they're below Japan and Spain as well in my opinion. I agree with your top 4 picks, (maybe in a slightly different order) except England which I'd place below Germany.
