FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 Group D

 

2015 fifa women's world cup posterThe United States, wearing an unusual white and black strip rather than their familiar patriotic red, white and blue, were the seeded team in Group D. Twice winners of the Women's World Cup (1991, 1999), holders of the CONCACEF Women's Championship and ranked second in the world by FIFA, they were one of the competition favourites. Nigeria had qualified as winners of the African Women's Championship while Australia were runners up in the AFC Women's Asian Cup.
