It's safe to say that the Women's World Cup had reached it's most popular this year, and without doubt has inspired many young women aspiring to be the next best. The past month has been extremely busy for the 24 teams – the largest amount of teams to participate in a Women's World Cup tournament – and now it has come to an end, we re-live the tournament.
On July 17th 2011, Japan beat the USA 3-1 in penalties following a 2-2 draw. On Sunday evening, USA avenged their previous loss and came out as 2015's Women's World Cup champions for a third time. It was predicted to be an exciting and intense battle between the two previous World Cup Champions, and they certainly did not disappoint.
The Copa America final on Saturday July 4th will decide the 2015 champions as hosts Chile are determined to send Argentina packing without a trophy. Although, with Argentina's 6-1 win over Paraguay in the semi final match, we see the team entering the final in higher spirits and feeling confident.
It was never going to be an easy game for either of the top ranked teams, but after a lot of missed chances and strong defence, USA had just enough power to break through the No.1's. The Americans' are now headed towards the final match on Sunday in the hope of going home as champions for a third time.
USA and Germany are the two most successful teams in Women's World Cup tournaments having both won twice. They are also the top 2 ranked teams in the world. Tonight, they battle for a place in the final and it is not going to be an easy match for either of them. Both teams have the potential to move onto the finals and become champions for a third time, but who can do it?
