Who will win the Women’s World Cup 2019?

The Women’s World Cup takes centre stage in France this summer with 24 countries looking to win the biggest prize in world football.

This will be the eighth edition of the tournament with games taking place across nine grounds including the Parc Des Princes, the Allianz Riviera and Stade de a Mosson. The hosts will be looking to follow in the footsteps of their male counterparts who lifted the trophy on home soil back in 1998, a feat no team has achieved since.

The favourites to win the 2019 Women’s World Cup

Defending champions USA are hot favourites to claim a fourth World Cup title. However, the Stars and Stripes are yet to successfully defend their crown. They’ve suffered defeat just once since 2017, and that was against France.

The hosts, unsurprisingly, are amongst the bookies’ favourites to be crowned World Champions this summer. A year on from their male counterparts tasting success in Russia, Les Bleus are seeking their first success at the Women’s World Cup, and there’ll be no better place to win it than on home soil.

Seeking a hat-trick of Women’s World Cup titles Germany are third favourites to be victorious in France. Their male counterparts had a summer to forget last year, and Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side will be looking to make the nation proud of their football team once again.

Outsiders at the 2019 Women’s World Cup

Fresh from winning the SheBelieves Cup England will be looking to claim their first World Cup title since 1966. Phil Neville’s side head to France having suffered one defeat in twelve months. They face 2011 champions Japan in the group stage who will provide a tough test.

In fact, it will be no surprise to see the Japanese side reach the latter stages of the competition.

Other outsiders include Holland, Australia, Brazil and Norway.

The tournament consists of six groups of four with the top two in each qualifying for the knockout round along with the four best third-place teams. This will be the first women’s tournament using VAR and it’s also the first time the competition will see 24 teams competing.

Don your colours and show your support this summer and hope football is finally coming home. Purchase your football scarf now in time for the summer World Cup!
