The Australia-New Zealand Women’s Soccer World Cup kicks off today (Sept. 20), marking the start of a month-long journey.
This year’s tournament features 32 teams, eight more than the previous edition. We’re looking forward to seeing how our women’s soccer team fares in the quarterfinals. The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand for the first time ever. Teams from 32 countries will compete for a month to determine the best in women’s soccer. We’re in Group H, which features two-time World Cup champions and FIFA No. 2 Germany, South American powerhouse Colombia, and ‘underdogs’ Morocco. As the team looks to improve on their best-ever finish, the round of 16 in Canada 2015, and reach the quarterfinals, they are focused on winning their first game against Colombia on Friday. “We’re all looking forward to the World Cup. We’ve got to win the바카라사이트first game against Colombia, that’s all we’re thinking about.” There are also big matchups between title favorites. The United States and the Netherlands, two of the world’s strongest teams going for a third straight World Cup, will meet in Group E in a rematch of the 2019 final in France. In the last edition of the tournament, the United States swept the Netherlands 2-0. Traditional powerhouses France and Brazil will face off in Pool F. This is also a return match from four years ago, when France defeated Brazil 2-1 to reach the quarterfinals. There will also be a battle of pride between the powerhouses of the Asian and European continents. Japan, winners of the 2011 tournament in Germany, face Spain in Group C, while China, runners-up in the 1999 tournament in the United States, face England in Group D. The team that will be crowned this year’s World Cup king will be determined in the final match in Sydney next month on June 20.
