- Summer Games Done Quick: 26th July - 1st August
Good timing. Directly after the FIFA Women's World Cup and it ends before my birthday and the summer holidays of Ba-Wü.
- European Speedster Assembly: 28th June - 5th July
Incredible bad timing again. When do they finally learn - I mean as fucking Europeans - that Football/Soccer is really important for our continent. It is exactly the same like last year.
- FIFA Women's World Cup Canade 2015 (BE: Football / AE: Soccer): 6th June - 5th July
Let's take a look at the participants this year.
Group A: Canada, China PR, New Zealand, Netherlands
Group B: Germany, Côte d'Ivoire, Norway, Thailand
Group C: Japan, Switzerland, Cameroon, Ecuador
Group D: USA, Australia, Sweden, Nigeria
Group E: Brazil, Korea Republic, Spain, Costa Rica
Group F: France, England, Colombia, Mexico
Looking at those groups fans directly notice that there is only one 'killer group' and that is Group D. Group A and F is more or less boring. I don't think that a team of those groups will win the tournament. B, C and E should be dominated by respectively Germany, Japan and (maybe) Brazil. USA is the top favourite for winning the World Cup and has to fight Sweden and Australia two possibly strong teams. At least Sweden has an incredible big experience and a lot of practice with Germany because of the European Championship.
I am also really disappointed that I cannot see Finland again. They were promising some years ago, but somehow failed to improve. I wonder what happened there.
Why is USA the top favourite in my opinion?
USA won the World Cup already 2 times. They are the only team that was always playing in either of the two finals. I know that Germany is World Rank number 1 currently, but that is misleading. Looking at the last World Cup in Germany, Germany didn't even make it into the finals, hell they didn't even qualify for the Olympic Games. France did in their place, lol. Germany won the European Championship surprisingly after a lot of the players were replaced with younger ones. And the young ones still exist. USA has more experience and never showed a weakness. They couldn't win against Japan, but only because they got really unlucky. They were always in the lead throughout the whole game in the last World Cup, but Japan got 2 goals with just 2 shots at the goal and won the penalty shootout afterwards. Japan only played a boring defensive game and didn't show real skills with the ball. I am pretty sure USA will not make the same mistake twice with kicking the ball everywhere except into the goal of the enemy.
What about Brazil?
I cannot see them. That is why I have included the (maybe) in the other paragraph. Many people think they can play and have the chance to win, but they didn't show it yet. As far as I can remember they have won the Olympic Games once, but who cares? Germany? Definitely not. We don't send our best players over there because the German league is more important. And Brazil never gave us a moment to fear. Since USA can easily outsmart Germany, why should they care about Brazil then? Brazil is overrated because of the male team. More likely 'was' =). At least a victor called Brazil would be a big surprise for me. And that keeps it entertaining.
Who is better, Norway or Sweden?
It is Sweden. They have always lost to Germany in a better way than Norway. And because of their bad luck since 1987 to meet Germany far to early, they had no chance to get another title than the first European Championship. In comparison, Norway has two European Championships plus 1 World Cup. But that time is over. Another statistic shows what I mean. Goals in Finals -> Norway: 43:37, Sweden 43:24. That speaks for itself. (For everyone not knowing what the numbers mean: 1. 43 goals scored, 2. 37 respectively 24 got.)
Who has the best team / individual players?
Is the schedule fine?
It looks like the finals take part before the final. It is very likely that two out of USA, Japan and Germany meet each other in the Quarter-Finals and the remaining two in the Semi-Finals.
