The final day of the Round of 16 at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup is upon us. The early match features Italy taking on China, and the late game is the Netherlands facing Japan. Europe has been great again in France; however, this is Asia’s opportunity to get two clubs into the quarterfinals.
The Italians are looking to win this and get back to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1991, but China stands in their way. The Chinese were bounced in the quarterfinals in 2015, and they’ll be looking to get back there this year. The group stage was the stage for the Italians to have a coming out party finishing top of the group featuring Australia and Brazil. China, meanwhile, came in third place in their group scoring only one goal but conceding only one goal. Who knows what’s going to happen here?
We’ll get to find out here if the Netherlands are really for real. Can they knock off the mighty Japan and advance deep into a World Cup for the first time. The European Champions have shown that they’re up for the challenge to date. The Japanese are targeting a third straight World Cup Final, but they’ve got their work cut out for them. With some veterans moving off into retirement, can this crop of Japan players lift their team to the same heights?
