United States, Germany, Japan.
USAThere isn’t a women’s football tournament that United States hasn’t walked into as the favorite to leave as champions. The defending champions, USA has the opportunity to become the first team to defend the title since Germany did so in 2007. A successful tournament will see USA have at least twice as many titles in the competition than any other nation.

GermanyOne more gold medal will see the Germans equal the record for the most titles in the competition’s history.

Japan having been to the final in the recent two editions of the tournament; winning one and falling short in the other.

FrancePlaying as host should help carry France. Their best finish was in the final 4 in 2011.
