The final of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup was played between Germany and Brazil. The match took place at the Hongkou Football Stadium, in Shanghai, China, on 30 September 2007.[1]

Finalists[edit]

The match was between Germany, who had won the previous Women's World Cup final and Brazil, who had never won a major world title, or indeed even reached the finals of a Women's World Cup. This was the first time in the history of the Women's World Cup that a European and South American had met each other in the final. Germany had not conceded a single goal in the whole competition whereas Brazil were free-scoring. Led by striker Marta, who had scored 7 goals, Brazil had scored seventeen goals in their route to the final, including four against title-rivals United States in the semi-finals. It was considered as "the rematch of the 2002 FIFA World Cup", except it was the men's teams.

Route to the final[edit]

Germany began their campaign to retain the trophy with the highest world cup win in history, Argentina lost 11–0.
