Germany were already favourites for the inaugural FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand before they cruised through to the semi-final stage scoring a dozen goals in the process. And the users of also believe that Ralf Peter's girls can go all the way.

In the latest survey on the site, an incredible 41.26 per cent of voters believed that the trophy would be travelling back to the country whose senior side currently hold both the FIFA Women's World Cup and the UEFA European Championship.

Second with 29.60 per cent of the votes was Kazbek Tambi's USA team, back on track after their shock 3-2 opening-match defeat. Surprisingly however, even the users on the English language version of the site put Germany in first place ahead of USA. The two giants of women's football go head to head in their semi-final on Thursday for a place in Sunday's decider.

The other semi-final sees two of the underdogs facing off, at least as far as users are concerned. England received 16.84 per cent of the vote, while only 12.42 per cent of users believe Korea DPR can take home the title.

The Mannschaft topped the poll in all four language versions, with our English, German, French and Spanish users tipping star striker Dzsenifer Marozsan, who has six goals so far in the tournament, and her cohorts to take the title on Sunday.
