When it comes to Group H, Germany tends to steal the spotlight. It’s not hard to see why since they’re ranked #2 globally. However, it’s important to remember that there are other teams in the group who shouldn’t be overlooked. Morocco, Korea Republic, and Colombia all bring their own unique strengths to the field and have the ability to make this group more exciting than it may seem at first glance. In our Women’s World Cup Group H prediction, we’ll delve into why these teams are worth watching.
Group H Preview
Germany had a tough loss to England at the recent 2022 European Championships, but they’re determined to make a comeback in the World Cup. Anything less than a championship will be considered a failure, so they have much to prove. Luckily, they’re in a group they should easily dominate, especially with star striker Alexandra Popp returning from injury.
Korea Republic is also looking to make it out of this group, led by their star player Ji So-yun, who is considered one of South Korea’s greatest female athletes with 67 international goals. She’ll be looking to lead her squad into the Round of 16.
Colombia is known for their speed and physicality, and though they failed to make the World Cup in 2019, they’ve had success since then, making it to the 2022 Copa America Feminina finals. Linda Caicedo is a young and talented player who will be heavily relied upon to score goals, and Colombia always brings a passionate crowd of supporters to these big tournaments.
Morocco is making their World Cup debut, and they’re not just there for the experience. They’re determined to prove themselves and maybe even make it to the Round of 16. Keep an eye out for Fatima Tagnaout, a 24-year-old player who will be looking to set up veterans like Ghizlane Chebbak.
Women’s World Cup Group H Prediction
Germany should advance, but It’s difficult to predict who will finish second in this group. The Korea Republic has the experience and a higher ranking than Columbia and Morocco, making them the safe choice. However, Columbia is a tough team due to their speed and physicality, making them a nightmare opponent for any team in this group. It’s hard to make a definitive decision, but we feel that Columbia might pull off an upset and advance alongside Germany.
