Panini Women's World Cup Canada 2015

After the great and unexpected success of the album for the Women's World Cup 2011, Panini decided to publish a sticker album also for the 2015 edition, this time released in many more countries. The collection has a design that somehow follows the albums of the Men's World Cup. The album opens with the contents and the roll of honour. In these two introductory pages there are 5 shining stickers: the logo, the official ball, the trophy, and the poster (2 stickers) of the competition. Then a double page with the six venues and stadiums of the competition located on a map of Canada for a total of 12 stickers. Before presenting the teams divided by groups, there are still 5 stickers about the fair play trophy, the young player award, the mascot, and the slogan "To a Greater Goal" in English and French. In the following we present the composition of the groups. For each team there are 19 stickers displayed over two pages: the shining team badge, the team photo, and 17 players.

Group A: Canada, China, New Zealand, Netherlands

Group B: Germany, Ivory Coast, Norway, Thailand
Germany reached the semifinals, defeated by USA they got the third place against England.

Group C: Japan, Switzerland, Camerun, Ecuador
The title owner Japan reached again the final, but this time lost 5-2 against USA.

Group D: USA, Australia, Sweden, Nigeria

Brazil was disappointing, out in the round of 16 against Australia.
