They were served a slice of humble pie by Japan, which won 4-0 in the Group C finale and finished second in the standings. La Roja dominated Switzerland 5-1 in the knockout round to reach the quarterfinals, the farthest they’ve ever made it in the tournament. This year, the team is powered by Alba Maria Redondo Ferrer and Jennifer Hermoso Fuentes, who have each scored three goals.
The Netherlands were in Group E with the USWNT and were in a heated battle for the top of the standings. It opened group play with a 1-0 win over Portugal before taking the Stars and Stripes to a 1-1 draw. With their place in the knockout stage on the line, the Orange Lionesses wrapped up group play with a 7-0 victory over Vietnam to win the group.
