72 days to go

In 32 matches played at the FIFA Women's World Cup™, Germany have earned 72 points, an average of 2.25 per game. That impressive statistic, however, is only second best behind USA's average of 2.39 points per game; the Americans have accumulated 86 points over 36 matches played at the Women's World Cup.

USA and Germany have met three times in previous Women's World Cups. At the inaugural tournament in 1991, the Stars and Stripes beat the Germans 5-2. The Americans picked up another win, this time 3-2 victory en route to glory on home soil in 1999. However, the Germans had the most recent success, beating USA 3-0 in 2003.
