USA v Japan: Final - FIFA Women's World Cup 2015


Japan is one of the favorites to win the tournament after their finish as runners-up to the US in Canada during the 2015 edition of the Fifa Womens World Cup. They won the 2011 World Cup held in Germany and will head to France with great momentum, as they won the 2018 Women's Asian Cup, defeating Australia in the final.


The Netherlands' women's team is also one to look out for. The Dutch eves finished second in their qualification group and won six of their games, drawing and losing one fixture before beating Denmark in the play-offs. Arsenal forward Vivianne Miedema and Barcelona star Lieke Martens are the star players for their side this World Cup.


Norway are the underdogs for lifting the FIFA Womens World Cup this season. The 1995 Womens World Cup winners are participating in their 8th consecutive World Cup, however the presence of Ballon D’Or winner Ada Hegerberg will surely be missed.


Veteran Brazil star Marta, who is Brazil's all-time top-scorer with 110 goals, and their most-capped player Formiga, is expected to feature for one last time in this competition.


One of the most exciting parts of the Womens World cup would be to see the very best female players in the world team up and face off against each other with energy levels on par with the Men's edition of the same tournament.


All in all, the 2019 Women’s World Cup will be a great experience and a must watch for every football fan out there.
