Starts today, we'll see the US can hang onto the title.
The other teams are looking good this year.
GO USA! Lots of experience on this squad for the USWNT
So who are the favorites to win the 2019 FIFA Women's Cup?
What other teams have a good chance?
WOMEN’S WORLD CUP CELEBRATION presented by adidas & LAFC
108 Women’s World Cup Players on Their Jobs, Money and Sacrificing Everything
What is the source for those numbers?
Ball to hand? (RSA - ESP)
I can see a recruiting search for armless defenders.
France gave Norway a goal, and the referee gave it back.
Netherlands is going to be in the final....
That seemed pretty slight, and anywhere else on the pitch it probably would've been ignored.
Bummer for Norway, they were keeping the French at bay.
I prefer to look at odds this way:
Chance of beating USA:
France - 50%
Netherlands - 20%
Australia - 20%
Germany - 15%
Canada - 10%
England - 10%
Sweden - 10%
Norway - 8%
Brazil - 3%
All other teams (including Spain) - 0%
Bullshit call. Both players went full out for the ball. There was a collision. Shit happens.
Iffy VAR handball call rescues referee from having to make easy PK call (Aus-Bra).
Ref having a tough day.
Australia is having a rough run of form. If they lose this game they will have to beat Jamaica to get to the knockout round and they will most likely face France. Maybe not this year.
What a comeback by the Matildas!
listening to Alexi Lalas is a constant reminder whats wrong with the mens national team
That we should go back 20 years to the programs that produced our most successful run in international play?
He's completely out classed by the people on the same stage as him
SA goalkeeper was pretty amazing today. Shame the offense couldn't convert. Along with the Jamaican GK's performance, some really great goalkeeping performances (yeah a lot of mediocre or outright bad too...ahem...Brazil and Thailand).
SA keeper did well but it was more China’s lack of ability to finish... They need a dominant finisher - aside from that, China played very good soccer, controlling possession most of the game, giving themselves a chance after chance.
SA did better in the second half, but the only thing they could get going were through balls to that fwd. If China had a finisher, this could’ve easily looked like US vs Thailand...
I think we have found another referee who won't be working the knockout rounds.
