Player No. 9 and No. 7 in the team both feature adept skills and rapid speed. In the semifinal held at the night before yesterday, Paulista University women's team gained a complete victory over another Asian hot contender College of Asian Scholars (Thailand) by 3:0. That night, Paulista University team raised its possession percentage to nearly 70 percent and repressed its rival most of the time, leaving the latter no chance to fight back.
Another final contestant University of Ottawa (Canada) team is also highly competent.

This team also won all the group games of this World Cup before entering the quarterfinal. The night before yesterday, the team defeated Beijing Normal University team, the former football champion of World University Games. From this game, it can be seen that players of the University of Ottawa team feature strong defense, high physical agility and stable mental endurance. At the end of the game, they still could maintain a high-intensive defense line, steadily controlled the tempo, made several threatening offenses, and scored the gates calmly in all 5 rounds of penalty kick. Their captain once made perfect crossovers and offenses in the past games with her prominent individual abilities.
both teams canceled their planned training as they felt a little tired after a series of fierce and high-intensity games. The day before the final, both teams chose to store up energy and take small amounts of training to achieve the best conditions for the final battle tonight.
