Storylines

Chile: Considered there are 24 teams at the cup and Child isn't even top 35 in the FIFA rankings, it tells you everything you need to know. They are solid but far from expected to make much noise in this competition. The sport in South America, on the women's side, is miles behind the women's game in in Europe. No South American nation has won a Women's World Cup, and Chile just hopes it can somehow finish third and get out of the group.

Sweden: The Swedish team is ranked No. 9 team by FIFA and is considered a fringe contender at this point. The big thing for them is, they have to take advantage of playing Chile and Thailand, because just one slip-up could put them in a tough spot before facing the USA in the final group stage game. The want to have their round of 16 spot locked up by then.

Prediction

The Swedes are the sharper, better side from start to finish and take three easy points.

Pick: Sweden 2, Chile 0
