    Here is the full draw, for all 6 groups. The top 2, and four best 3rd-place teams, will advance to the second round.

    (BTW In round 2, the winner of Group A plays against a 3rd-place team. The runner-up plays the Group C runner-up.
    If the Group A 3rd-place team makes it, they'll play the winner of Group B or C.)

    Nah. France has been struggling the last couple of years and is well below their 2015 level. Ada Hegerberg is boycotting the World Cup, Norway is pretty toothless without her. Nigeria is capable of being good one day and absolutely terrible the next. B, C, D and E are all tougher groups. F is pretty soft outside of the US and maybe Sweden depending on what Sweden team shows up.

    She's been there for a couple of days already, though. That said, I'd be surprised if she played today.

    Wasn't Yeo Min-Ji the star and unstoppable goal scorer for that U17 title winning team? I guess she just never developed?

    She was, but then she suffered a really bad injury ahead of the 2015 Women's World Cup and was out for almost a year and never really found her form again.

    Korea is kind of unique in that most female members or at least a very sizable portion of Korean females root against Korean men's national teams.
    It is called gender war and several foreign presses covered this very unique and unfortunate Korean turmoil.

    I tried to show where this is discussed and it is blocked for some reason. But anyway it is a social concern.

    Whenever I go out to watch the Korean men's games, about half of the viewers are Korean women.

    1) That's a self fulling and legacy situation as well as being cultural. If you don't promote something, if you treat as a distant 2nd place at best, if you don't provide the support to grow a sport then it won't be particularly commercially successful. Hell it will struggle to be successful on the pitch as well. I mean, up until the last women's world cup cycle, the women's team didn't even get their own women's cut uniforms.

    2) Linked to this is because of the relatively lower investment into women's soccer, if people actually get behind it, then it can be commercially viable. In the USA, the women's national team is the cash cow. Which team is generating more money goes in cycles a little bit as during a men's world cup year, if the team qualifies that is always going to bring more money with it, but the rest of the time the USWNT generates the larger profits. This is in part why US Soccer always has such an aggressive schedule of home USWNT matches each year. On the other hand, the Korean WNT rarely has a friendly at home and when they do, it is barely promoted.

    3) The South Korean MNT will never ever win a World Cup. Generate a lot of talent, yes, but 2002 is the peak. It's harsh, but it is true. On the other hand, with investment the WNT could be competitive for the Women's World Cup by virtue of how little funding goes into women's soccer worldwide.

    Excellent contribution to the discussion! Well reasoned, well thought out. Not at all like the 10-year old people online think that you are.

    Come to a Korean forum and tell us we'll never win the WC and that 2002 world cup was our peak -_-
    maybe we should go to the American forum and tell them to get their delusion in check because that's something they really need.
