The Caribbean nation qualified for the finals for the first time with win in the intercontinental play-offs, and their first match will be against Haiti on July 22 in Brisbane. The Lionesses will next take on Denmark in Sydney on July 28. On August 1, they will play their last group-stage match against China in Adelaide.

After appearing in the previous two tournaments and making it all the way to the quarterfinals in 2015, China was the first team drawn with England and is the second-ranked nation in the group. In 2022, they were also named Asian champions.

Denmark, the top-ranked team in Pot 3, returns to the competition after missing out on the previous three iterations. The Republic of Ireland, who are competing in their first World Cup, was placed in Group B and will face the hosts Australia in Sydney on the first day of the competition. Nigeria and Canada round up the group representing the Republic.

When is that?

The 2023 Women’s World Cup will occur in the southern hemisphere’s winter, from July 20 to August 20, 2023.

What location is it in?

Australia and New Zealand will co-host the event; they defeated Colombia in the voting. Fans of rugby will be familiar with places like Eden Park in Auckland, Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, and Stadium Australia (Sydney).

Due to “significant interest in tickets,” Australia’s opening game has been shifted to a bigger venue in Sydney. The opening Group B match between Australia and the Republic of Ireland will now take place in the 83,000-seat Stadium Australia, the largest stadium being used at the World Cup and the site of the final on August 20.

Which teams have earned a spot?

With one more qualification match, England successfully qualified for the tournament. As Northern Ireland failed to advance from their qualifying group, Scotland and Wales were eliminated in the play-offs, while the Republic of Ireland advanced for the first time.

The 32 teams competing in the finals include the defending champions, the United States, Olympic champions Canada, and all other historically dominant teams in women’s sports. Following their victories in the intercontinental play-offs in February, Haiti, Panama, and Portugal were drawn to compete in the tournament’s championship game.

Although the tournament’s broadcasting rights have not yet been revealed, the BBC aired the 2019 event entirely.

What recent news is there?

Less than five months remain till the Women’s World Cup when Corinne Diacre was fired as head coach of France. After three of France’s top players left the national team at the end of February, Diacre’s future, whose team advanced to the semifinals of the European Championship last summer, has come into question.

Wendie Renard, the team’s captain, as well as PSG, forwards Kadidiatou Diani and Marie-Antoinette Katoto withdrew because they didn’t feel they could continue to support the present “system” or “administration,” as described by Renard and Diani, respectively.

A statement from the French Football Federation [FFF] stated that they had noted a “very big divide with executive players” and “a discrepancy with the requirements of the very high level” for the team’s enactment following a meeting of their expensive group on Thursday, March 9.

“This fracture has reached a point of no return which damages the interests of the selection,” the FFF statement continued.

The observed dysfunctions seem to be unrecoverable.

“The mission of Corinne Diacre as the head of the French women’s squad was terminated in light of these factors.”

Many believed that Diacre’s exit was becoming more likely after former FFF president Noel Le Graet, one of her closest supporters, resigned on February 28 in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct, which he has denied.

The FFF’s interim president Philippe Diallo has ordered a newly-appointed FFF commission to find, “as soon as possible”, candidates to replace Diacre.

Who are the reigning winners?

The US. In Lyon, they defeated the Netherlands in 2019.

How did England do in the past?

Six times in all, England has earned a spot in the women’s world cup. They’ve advanced to the semifinals twice and the quarterfinals three times, most recently in 2019 when they lost to eventual champions US.

What kind of ball will be used in the competition?

The official ball for the Women’s World Cup this summer will employ the same technology used for the Men’s World Cup in Qatar in 2022, sending VAR officials real-time data to aid in semi-automated offside judgements.

The Adidas-made “OCEAUNZ” ball has a motion sensor suspended in the middle that is powered by a rechargeable battery that can be charged via induction.

“The first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by two distinct countries from separate confederations, according to Fifa secretary general Fatma Samoura, has an iconic [ball] that embodies diversity, inclusivity, and togetherness.”

“The tournament’s current iteration will be really unique.”

2023 England Women’s Schedule & Results: Whole World Cup group, Nations League, and Lionesses schedule

A comprehensive reference to the Lionesses’ season, including schedules for the Arnold Clark Cup, the Nations League, and the 2023 Women’s World Cup. England now has their sights set on victory in the 2023 Women’s World Cup after winning the 2022 European Championship and taking home the trophy in front of a packed Wembley Stadium.

The first half of the year will be devoted to meticulously preparing for that competition, which they started at the end of 2022 by playing and defeating the world-champion U.S. women’s national team.

Together with the newly-launched UEFA Women’s Nations League, which will be related to qualifying for the 2025 Euros, there will also be opportunities for friendlies throughout the year.

What matches did the England women Football team have in 2023?

The invitational Arnold Clark Cup, which the Lionesses launched and won last year, marked the beginning of England in 2023. England defeated all three of the visiting teams in this edition—Belgium, Italy, and South Korea—to retain the championship.

What events will the England Women play in 2023?

England, the reigning European champions, will play Brazil, the South American champion, in the inaugural Women’s Finalissima on April 6 at Wembley Stadium. They will play Australia, one of the World Cup co-hosts this summer, in a friendly match five days after that.

The Lionesses will then have one more international break from July 10 to July 18 to finish up their last tournament preparations before the Women Football World Cup 2023 begins on July 20.

China, Denmark, and Haiti have been placed in Wiegman’s team group; Haiti won the February playoff competition. In the triumph versus Chile, Melchie Dumornay, the 2022 NXGN winner for GOAL, scored twice.
