TeamsEdit

These teams automatically qualified for the tournament because they were in the top 4 of the previous tournament. The North Korea team wasn't allowed to be in the tournament because of a doping scandal in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.[2]

These teams were in the tournament because they won their qualification group.
