    Yeah. With france, it’s just the penalty shootout that fails them. This time, it will be different, the german male team didnt get to the finals for many years you know. What a shame really, for England. Will miss kirby

      Yes, plus if they can convert more of the many goalscoring opportunities they create then they would be so difficult to beat.

      It is a shame for England, however EURO 2017 is not too far away and they are definitely title contenders in my opinion. Germany are extremely strong but have been unfortunate with injuries, they will also have to adapt to a new head coach soon.

      • Chibuike Nwankwo 4 years ago

        Yeah, that’s what I think of France. I want that title taken from the Germans. Too good sometimes. I fancy Norway though.

        • Gina West 4 years ago

          Yeah, Norway were only narrowly defeated by France recently. But, friendlies are so hard to judge by.

    I would want the Canadian team to win the cup, not USA. Happy and thrilled for Jessie Fleming, one of my favourites, for making the team. She is no longer the youngest ??

    • Gina West 4 years ago

      It’s going to be tough!
      In fact… I think it will be tough for any team to beat USA at the moment, I see them as strongest contenders for Gold at Rio 2016, who do you think will be their toughest opponents?

      • Chibuike Nwankwo 4 years ago

        I will always go for france. They have really matured and have a good mix of young and old players. And then Germany. USA are in a good moment, but August 5 is still far away. England and Japan too are in mix. But France will win it

        • Gina West 4 years ago

          I agree about France. Tournament football can be very unpredictable though, some teams seem to thrive on the whole experience and perform above expectations and others don’t seem to reach what we know is their full potential.
          It’s a shame England (Team GB) will not be able to compete, but what will be interesting is the Four Nations (USA, Germany, France & England) tournament in USA. This will give a great insight into current forms.
