Can Germany win again?
Germany has won the last six tournaments in a row, and a total of eight of of the nine last tournaments. Can they continue this fantastic winning streak? The last time another nation won was in 1993, and then Norway won against Italy in the final.
The nerves are high, but the women are ready to play ball. Hopefully the stadiums will be packed with people cheering for these footballers, and there will for sure be millions watching in front of their TV’s and online. Which team are you gonna cheer for?
