The mascot is a little fox named Alissa, who fits well with the young women footballers, as the mascot represents beauty, intelligence, speed and craftiness. The little fox is a very popular icon in Russian literature and is easily recognized throughout the country.
The fox is graceful looking, wears the colous of it’s host country — Russia and above all, plays the football free-spiritedly.
It is going to be an interesting match as 16 nations qualified for the team with Germany defending it’s title. With US soccer team as deadly as Germany, expect this to be an exciting tournament.
