I hope and believe that Norway will make it through, and I believe Brazil is our biggest competitor, it is a tough group though, France has a good team, and South Korea might make an upset.

Brazil is a huge football nation for men, although the National team is beatable by most top 20 teams in the World, they often seem to end as the winner, and the club teams of course are great, but not as good as the best in Europe. they are great at football though, no doubt about it. Do not confuse them with the women though Lili. The Brazilian football women are a rising force, but no where near the world power the mens national team is. Norway, although having a much smaller population, is much more recognised as a Women's football team, defending Olympic champions and all.

As I recall, Dagny Mellgren had a hattrick in this match and Pichon scored the only goal for France. Dagny's club team the Boston Breakers just played Pichon's club team the Philadelphia Charge last Sunday and Dagny had another hattrick in Boston's 3-1 victory.

France is very good, but I think that Norway and Brazil will advance out of Group B.

No, Sissi either shaves her head or cuts it extremely short and her skin color is not very dark. Katia is the Brazilian striker who is very black with long hair. Katia was the top goalscorer in the WUSA last season and she just won the ESPY award on ESPN a few days ago for being the top women's soccer player in the world.

Pretinha who is Katia's teammate on the Brazilian team and on the San Jose CyberRays WUSA club tore her ACL last Sunday in a friendly match against the U.S. and will likely be out for around 5-7 months.

I believe Norway will win this group. Brazil may have a (very) slight edge over France, but voted for the latter.

Norway should be on top BUT you will see South Korea try to unsettle the Nords' glory


Riise in as Norway announce team

source: fifaworldcup.com

Norway coach ┼ge Steen named a cocktail of young and old players Monday when he announced his squad for the FIFA Womenĺs World Cup USA 2003.

Steen named 10 players with Olympic and FIFA Womenĺs World Cup experience to his team, and also selected 10 relatively untried players. Leading the pack is the U.S.-based WUSA quartet of Unni Lehn, Dagny Mellgren, Anita Rapp and Hege Riise. Also returning to the national fold is goalkeeper Bente Nordby, who retired briefly in 2002.

ôI think we will be very strong up front,ö Steen said. ôWe have Dagny who has a lot of goals for the national team and Marianne Pettersen is back. In them we have two very strong strikers.ö

Mellgren, who plays for the Boston Breakers in the WUSA, has amassed an impreccive 37 goals in 70 internationals. She struck net 14 times to lead Boston in scoring this year. Even though she broke into football as a flank midfielder, she said she always thought of herself as a striker.

ôI think I was always a goal scorer but now I am in a position where I get to score more,ö Mellgren said. ôWe have some great players on this team.ö

Brazil and Norway.

Didja know that Ronaldo's wife, Milene, is on Brazil's NT?

Hello Garrincha

Yes, Milene IS currently training with the NT but according to today's NY Times, Coach Paulo Gonšalves has not yet picked his 20 players for the tournament.

One item - perhaps of interest to those who notice such details - Milene holds the record for juggling a soccer ball: 55,187 touches in 9 hours 6 minutes ...

.. while the rest of us are not very happy about the possibility of NOT seeing Sissi in WWC2003

Does anyone know what Norway's all-time record has been against Brazil in women's soccer? I know that the Norwegian men have never lost to Brazil , but the last time I recall the Norwegian women playing against Brazil, they lost the third place match of WC '99 on PKs after Bente Nordby kept the Brazilians from scoring a oal during regulation and two overtime periods.

Milene ended up being named to Brazil's WC roster and will wear #20.

Complete USA 2003 squad lists announced

Interesting to note too that Brazil has the team with the youngest average age at 22 years 2 months and the U.S. is the oldest with an average age of 28. I didn't take the time to do any calculations for the average age of the Norwegian squad, but in contrast to the U.S., Norway only has four players on their roster older than 28 years old and half of their roster is 25 years old or younger.
