On the other hand, Korea arrives as a complete underdog, but will try to surprise yet another giant, after winning against Germany in 2018, when she was the reigning world champion. For them, hope is more centralized in Heung Min Sonplayer of Tottenham who intends to show what his team is capable of once again in the tournament.
With a group formed also by Portugal and Ghana, a first-round victory is crucial as the Europeans have a strong squad and the Africans are considered underdog candidates by some. Even so, it is clear that the most anticipated game is between Uruguay and Portugal, which takes place in the second round.
