China   China: One of the strong favorites, it has boosted a soft area by moving superstar Sun Wen from midfield to forward on this veteran-ladened team. Liu Ailing and Zhoa Lihong lead a strong midfield group with their passing and dribbling abilities. Jin Yan has picked up the pace in recent months at forward. Acrobatic Goa Hong is the frequently brilliant goalkeeper who occasionally will let in a soft goal. She is aided by battle-tested defenders Fan Yunjie, Xie Huilin, Wang Liping and Wen Lirong. Can match United States in athleticism and skills. Chances: Excellent to make final.
