Women’s Final Scotland vs. Germany
This is going to be a close game but Scotland is likely the favourite As a new team, they have proven themselves to be strong competitors in this tournament, finishing first in their strong pool and defeating Poland in the semi finals. At the same time, Germany finished first in their pool and beat the three time defending champs, Ukraine. Scotland is going into the final game with 29 goals and has current leading goal scorer Tayler Firth. Germany currently has 16 goals and has Meagan Cormier, golden boot winner for the past two years. Scotland is a younger, quicker team, while Germany has experienced vets with their strength through the midfield. Both teams will have to play their best in order to come out on top! Scotland 3-2.
Men's Final France vs Poland
These are 2 teams with very different strategies. France are a calm composed team that will want the ball at their feet and will build from the back. Possession is the name of their game and I imagine they will have a lot of it. Poland on the other hand will out work and out tackle to try and get the win. They are a run and gun style team that will try and attack on the counter. Which should make this very interesting. Unfortunately, what I actually think this game is going to come down to is depth. France has had a relatively easy way to the final beating Nigeria and then having a walkabout/nap against Afghan while winning 6 nothing. Poland on the other hand had to literally scrap out a win against Sudan and then took a few casualties in their game against Jamaica. France continue to get stronger adding Benno. While it seems as though Poland have lost Sarazin, as well as sustaining injuries to both Jay and Dane. I think in the end those injuries will be too much too overcome so I am picking France. 3-1.
Good luck to everyone involved.
