The US Women’s National Soccer Team won the first ever Women’s World Cup competition 28 years ago with a 2-1 victory over Norway. They’ve won it twice since, in 1999 and 2015. And they went into this year’s World Cup as FIFA’s number one ranked team. Today they’ll go up against 39th ranked Chile in group play at noon. FiveThirtyEight.com has the US at over 99% to make the round of 16, and at 70% to make the quarter finals. They’ve also got France, Germany, England, and the Netherlands at over 99% for the round of 16, and they’re giving France, the hosts of this year’s tourney, a slightly better chance than the US to win the whole thing. The Water Dog (1016 Jefferson St.), which is a fine place to get a beer, a burger, freshly shucked oysters, and a “Chicago dog,” and other consumables, are committed to showing all of the matches.
