Storylines

France: It's all about the set pieces here, because France was special on them in the opener with two goals. Wendie Renard is a monster in attack and she will be tasked with trying to add another goal to her tally as France does such a good job in the final third of drawing fouls. Against Norway, they'll be the favorite but will be cautious against a team that has confidence.

Norway: All eyes were on this team in the opener with superstar Ada Hegerberg refusing to join the national team for the tournament. Norway looked sharp though in the opener, answering the question if they can create enough in attack without Hegerberg. It's going to be a challenge to get far without her, but here is a chance to prove they are for real. A draw would be a fine result.

France vs. Norway prediction

France is just too powerful, dominates the ball and puts Norway away in the second half.

Pick: France 3, Norway 1
