    Any interest in this?

    I usually enjoy these tournaments or when the best go to the Olympics toward the latter stages of the knockout stage at least.

    You can delete the FIFA rankings and simply show the odds.

    I have huge interest in this tournament, the women game is improving a lot and many teams have a shot at winning. I am very much looking forward to it much much more than the Gold Cup and Copa America.

    It's in France, a lot of great stadiums and many fans, also real grass after the disaster that was the 2015 WC on turf.

    I was going to post the odds rather than the FIFA ranks but had a harder time finding a consensus so I just said “screw it” and put up the rankings.

    The top 5-10 or so teams seem pretty accurately ranked here anyhow. More so than the men’s rankings for sure.

    Post any odds instead of the FIFA rankings! For instance Canada at #5 is too high, Japan and Spain too low.

    We have all the match on TV here and they usually get very good ratings.

    The Netherlands ladies have a very formidable team and looked great at the Euro (which they won). Really excited to see them against Canada as I think this group makes for some really interesting games.

    Lieke Martens is a fantastic player (used to also be a big fan of Jackie Groenen but she just signed with United so bleh).

    I thought about maybe making a Women's Soccer topic.

    Spain is way too low. Japan and Canada might need to switch spots but it’s not that far off. Both comfortably in top 10.

    Awesome seeing the women's game grow in so many ways. As stated earlier, looking forward to Canada and the Netherlands facing off. Canada should escape the group and it would be fun seeing them go on a run

    Also mad respect for Ada Hegerberg in standing up for what she believes in. It's unfortunate she will not be at the tournament but there are bigger issues that need addressing in female sports.

    Canada could get a tough game in the last 16 though, if we win the group it's either Japon or England but if we finish 2nd it could be better with maybe Sweden.

    I would be surprised if Canada finished over the Netherlands based on their current teams.

    I still think the American women will repeat, but I'm still kind of sour of how they performed at the Olympics. I don't think Ellis is a good coach and I don't think this team knows how to break down a team that bunkers. Now I think we can easily get by those kind of teams based on pure talent, but it'll be like pulling teeth. The defense has been incredibly inconsistent this year and who know how Naeher will do as the starter.

    For other team I really think the Spanish women will be the team to give a lot of the top teams headaches along with the Dutch.

    According to the odds France and the United States are very close favorites.

    France has always under-achieved in big tournaments so the jury is still out.

    Found these odds on advancing out of group based on ELO. From oddschecker.

    After attending the Men's World Cup in Moscow last year, I'll be watching the US Women this summer, assuming they advance to the Quarterfinals.

    Very excited!

    I'll be, of course, rooting for Canada to make a big run but realistically it's probably between the US and France.

    I'll root for the English as well.

    I'll probably watch some games. Canada should advance from their group, but winning it over the Netherlands will be tough.

    It's not important to finish 1st, Canada might have a tougher match in the next round if they finish 1st than 2nd.

    Stupid 24 teams format with 16 going through does that.

    Probably won't watch as much as the last edition, simply due to the time difference but generally enjoy the tournament, less time wasting and antics too compared to the men. Only thing is once they expanded the tournament the group stage got tedious, there were 3-4 teams getting hammered every match in the last World Cup. The USA group is one where both USA/SWE are way too strong for Thailand/Chile for example
