France: France has never won the World Cup but hopes to replicate what the men's team did 21 years ago, winning their first when they hosted the tournament. A strong domestic league has provided top competition for many of these players, and seven of the players play for Champions League winner Lyon. Eugenie Le Sommer is a star in attack. In 249 games for Lyoin, she has 223 goals.
South Korea: This is South Korea's third World Cup, having gotten out of the group stage in 2015. It's always tricky playing the hosts, and South Korea will certainly focus on playing more defensive to try and squeak out a draw. The important thing will be to not go down early and try to weather the storm. A point would feel like a win.
France gets two goals from Le Sommer and take this one easily.
Pick: France 3, South Korea 0
