2019 Women’s World Cup Preview
The United States won the last World Cup, in 2015, but midfielder Megan Rapinoe said France is the team to beat in 2019
“I think they are, in my opinion, the favorite, for sure,” Rapinoe said, according to ESPN. “I don’t say that to play mind games. They’re a fantastic team. They’re home. They’re going to have, obviously, a home crowd with them every time. We felt that in the last World Cup, even though it was in Canada, it felt like a home World Cup for us. In some of those tighter games, that was definitely a big boost for us.
“For me, I consider them the favorites and I feel like all the pressure is on them.”
She added: “I still back us over anyone, of course. But I just think they have such a strong squad, and obviously it being a home World Cup just adds that little bit to them.
“I don’t know if anyone else would consider them the favorite. I don’t even know what they say about it. They’re probably trying to deflect a lot of the pressure off them. But I think maybe the favorite by just a hair.”
Should both France and the United States win their respective groups and advance through the first single-elimination round, they’d meet in the quarterfinals.
But Rapinoe said her side won’t try to game the system by finishing second in their group to avoid or delay a meeting with the French.
“I don’t even think we would be able to understand how to play that game,” Rapinoe said, per ESPN. “We’d have a trickery game plan, and we’d totally mess it up. You just want to have good vibes going in. I think when you start thinking too much of do this or get a certain opponent — there’s enough going on, it’s difficult as it is to go through the group stage to play all of these games.”
Norwegian forward Ada Hegerberg, who claimed the inaugural Ballon d’Or Feminin in December, won’t participate in the event, citing a lack of investment in the nation’s women’s team.
“Football is the biggest sport in Norway for girls and has been for years but at the same time girls don’t have the same opportunities as the boys,” the Lyon star said, according to The Guardian. “Norway has a great history of women’s football but it’s harder now. We’ve stopped talking about development and other countries have overtaken us.”
