Algarve Cup 2015 – Placement matches (11 March)
France and USA have made it to the Algarve Cup 2015 Final, but who will be crowned 2015 Champions?
France are looking strong as they head into the final having won all their group stage matches. USA remain unbeaten at the 2015 Algarve Cup but had to settle for a draw against Iceland in their final group match.
The third place play-off will be contested by two top European sides, Germany and Sweden. The two teams met in their opening group game, a thrilling encounter in which Sweden came from 2-0 down to win 4-2… The third place play-off will surely be the time for Germany to seek their revenge.
