Dogs predict the group stage for each women’s team this summer, here are the results

The18 and the National Peanut Board teamed up for a unique way to predict the results of the group stage this summer in Australia and New Zealand.

We called up some furry friends, Ozzy and Finn, to provide their soccer expertise. 

Peanut butter is a safe treat for dogs so long as it doesn’t contain Xylitol. The National Peanut Board has seven different peanut butter recipes for dogs listed on their website if you’re looking for inspiration.

Now let’s see what the pups are predicting for the women’s cup.

Group A

  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Philippines
  • Switzerland

Finn likes: Philippines

Ozzy likes: Switzerland

A very bold pick from Finn as she picks the massive underdog, Philippines. Ozzy cruelly tricked the hosts, New Zealand, with a sniff and settled on Switzerland.

Group B

  • Australia 
  • Canada
  • Nigeria
  • Republic of Ireland

Finn likes: Australia

Ozzy likes: Canada

No fooling around with these picks! The pups pick the two group favorites to advance. Finn must have felt bad about Ozzy snubbing New Zealand last round and picked the other hosts Australia this time.

Group C

  • Costa Rica
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • Zambia

Finn likes: Costa Rica

Ozzy likes: Zambia

Two more unexpected picks! Finn and Ozzy have disregarded the statistics and experts and gone with their hearts. What a shock that would be if Spain AND Japan fail to advance.

Group D

  • China
  • Denmark
  • England
  • Haiti

Finn likes: China

Ozzy likes: England

England will be heavy favorites to win the whole thing this summer and Ozzy made a B-line for the England flag. Smart thinking, Ozzy. Finn is picking China to advance, a team that made it to the final back in 1999.

Group E

  • Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • United States
  • Vietnam

Finn likes: Portugal

Ozzy likes: United States

American fans are loving Ozzy’s pick on this one! The U.S. women’s soccer team will be looking for a third-straight title and Ozzy has them off to a hot start! Finn had a tough decision between Netherlands and Portugal but has chosen the latter.

Group F

  • Brazil
  • France
  • Jamaica
  • Panama

Finn likes: France

Ozzy likes: Brazil

Two powerhouses at this tournament, Brazil and France, occupy Group F. The pups know not to doubt the likes of these two teams and have both advancing to the knockout stages.

Group G

  • Argentina
  • Italy
  • South Africa
  • Sweden

Finn likes: Argentina

Ozzy likes: Sweden

Group G looks wide open for the taking. Ozzy has put his tastebuds with the European giants Sweden while Finn prefers a taste of Argentina.

Group H

  • Colombia
  • Germany
  • South Korea
  • Morocco

Finn likes: Germany

Ozzy likes: Colombia

Germany is the clear favorite to top Group H and Finn made no mistake with that pick. It’s anyone’s guess as to which team will finish second and Ozzy thinks that Colombia will prevail.

The fun and excitement in Australia and New Zealand begins soon. Time will tell how accurate Finn and Ozzy’s tastebuds truly are.
