Germany vs. France

The Germans have already scored 19 goals this tournament and have their eye on the finals but first they have to get through France in the quarterfinals in the matchup between two of the top three ranked teams in the world. Germany has only faltered when they came up against Norway in a group stage game that ended in a 1-1 draw. France, however, has been a bit slower this World Cup. France is a technically gifted team that has a chance at knocking off powerhouse Germany.

China vs. USA

In this rematch of the 1999 Women's World Cup final the women of China's national team are looking for revenge against the USA team that won in penalty kicks. The Chinese team is full of youth and speed and great defending. The USWNT will be without starts Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday who are out due to yellow card accumulation. The USA hasn't been the powerhouse many thought they would be but they seem to always find a way to win. With two of their stars out and Abby Wambach looking less than stellar this may be the toughest game yet for the USA.
