FIFA Womens World Cup match between France and Brazil

The hosts of this year’s World Cup would certainly earn their first title if they were to go on and win this competition. France have been put into an extraordinarily difficult bracket for the knockout rounds, and they might have to beat Brazil, the United States, England, and Germany over the next two weeks to add their first star to their logo. Their first match will come against Brazil this weekend, and the Selecao would love to disappoint the home crowd.

Brazil’s joy over advancing to the knockout rounds was blunted once it became apparent they would face France. The Selecao must certainly feel hard done by this draw, especially considering they won two games in Group C yet still finished in third place.

They started off their tournament on the right foot even though they didn’t have their top player, Marta. Cristiane filled in for the legend, and Brazil secured a 3-0 win over Jamaica with Cristiane knocking in all three goals. It looked like they would follow up that win with another victory and put themselves in position to win the group, but instead they blew a 2-0 first half lead to Australia and lost 3-2. As a result of the loss, even though they beat Italy 1-0 off a Marta penalty kick late in the second half, they finished third due to goal differential.

France have lost just one match in the last 12 months, and they did not have any real trouble in Group A. In the opening game of the World Cup, they cruised to a 4-0 win over South Korea with their three top players notching goals. Norway gave them a strong test in their second match, but they created the better chances and eventually survived with a 2-1 win. In their most recent game, they controlled the flow and had the lion’s share of possession, yet they were unable to crack Nigeria’s back line. A penalty decision and conversion late proved to be the difference though.

France Player to Watch

Amandine Henry is one of the best players in the world. She is one of the leaders for Olympique Lyon, and her wizardry in the midfield has helped make them the premier club everyone else is striving to beat. Henry has many of her Lyon teammates with her on France, so she hasn’t really missed a beat this World Cup. She can have a lot of success against Brazil’s back line.

Brazil Player to Watch

Marta will likely end her career as the greatest player in women’s soccer history. Over the last 16 years, she has helped revolutionize the game, and she became the first player to score in five World Cups earlier in the tournament. She has 111 goals in 134 matches with Brazil in her career, and if Brazil are going to pull off the improbable, she will need to shine.

France vs. Brazil Free Picks

Since 13-0, the Americans have been the talk of the tournament. Everyone has made the USWNT the team to beat, but France entered the World Cup as co-favorites and they will prove why on Friday. I think they will rather easily dismiss Brazil and send a message to the United States prior to their probable quarterfinals clash in Paris.
