FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019 Group B

So yesterday I posted how I thought group A was going to be playing out and you can see that post here. So today we are moving onto group B. Which houses Germany, China, Spain and South Africa, a group where you could envisage one team running away with the group and the rest battling for second place. Germany are one of the big names in the game and if they actually turn up to the tournament and put in the effort they did in 2015 I can see them running away with this group and progressing further into the tournament. Spain are a team that could really put up a challenge over the years their standard of football has really progressed and they are getting better at holding the bigger teams, which we saw when they held the USWNT to just a 1-0 win when you would usually expect the USWNT to win by a huge margin. China is a team who are hit and miss they can run away with the game against lower teams, lose to the mid teams and hold the top teams to close results (or in the Netherlands case win), so this tournament is all going to depend on who turns up for them, who wants to prove themselves. I am hoping we get to see some good performances out of them. South Africa is another hit or miss team so it all depends on how much they want it to see what type of performances we get from them.

So here is how I think the group is going to look at the end of the group stage...

South Africa

I honestly think Germany could run away with this group, with Spain managing to pick up 2nd place. It could be close between China and South Africa for who finishes bottom but again it all depends on who shows up and wants to prove themselves. I think this group is going to be a good one to watch to see how it progresses. 

So there you have it that is how I think group B is going to play out. Check back soon for group C

See you soon
