On 20th July, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is about to begin its journey. With thirty-two teams taking to the field this time, this FIFA becomes the biggest version of itself in its 32-year history.
Many teams participating in the tournament have slim chances of making it to the trophy or the final four. However, at least half the number of teams on the list seems promising. Further, it has become really difficult to pick a favorite among the USA, Netherlands, Brazil, Australia, and England teams.
With the return of Julie Ertz to the squad, Vlatko Andonovski’s USA soccer team seems to be a favorite in the contest. This team shines with the right balance of experience and young legs and is set to lift its third world cup in a row.
However, there is a close second to this USA team, and it is the England team that many people are eyeing. Expectations for this team of Sarina Wiegman have gone high with the team’s win in European Championship last summer.
After this massive and first major victory on its home ground, the England team consolidated its success with the Finalissima win. So, with constant improvements and growth, this team will make a plunge full throttle to lift the cup this year.
With Sam Kerr, probably the finest at the moment, in the squad, Australia emerges as a favorite for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. And this Chelsea striker has become the face of the tournament. She also aims to create that “Cathy Freeman Moment” this time in the FIFA tournament. Further, Kerr is expected to get the backing of a solid team that is confident after winning eight of its last nine matches. Especially their win over England has set the right momentum.
Last summer, The Netherlands team failed to deliver and had to bid adieu to the European championship in the quarter-finals. But this team time, the team looks resolute to more than compensate for that in the upcoming FIFA World Cup. The team’s chance also seems bright as the four players responsible for taking the Netherlands to the final in the last season are part of this team.
So, Lieke Martens, Danielle van de Donk, Jill Roord, and Jackie Groenen are in the squad, and the fans wait to see how they deliver.Brazil will participate in the tournament and try to give their best, as it will be Marta’s farewell tour. Brazil fans will wait to see Debinha and Kerolin in action, along with Marta and her Lionel Messy tricks.
