After the first match of Group E Women’s World Cup 2023 between the Vietnamese team and the US team, the remaining two teams of the group will also appear on the match day of July 23. The Dutch women’s team is currently the runner-up of the World Cup after losing to the US team in the final four years ago in France. Therefore, the team from the land of tulips is being included in the list of championship candidates for this year’s tournament.
However, the Dutch women’s team at the moment is not as strong as it was 4 years ago and has fallen to 9th place on the FIFA rankings. But Coach Andries Jonker’s teachers and students are still appreciated more than rookies Portugal is ranked 21. In the friendly matches before the World Cup, the Dutch team had 3 wins and 2 losses against Germany and Austria.
Meanwhile, even though it is the first time participating in a World Cup, the Portuguese team is showing rapid progress. In the last 5 matches, the Portuguese girls lost only 1 match against the Japanese team and drew with the EURO champion, England, in a friendly match on July 1.
Also on July 23, the candidate for the championship, the Swedish team, will also have their opening match in Group G against South Africa at 12 o’clock at Wellington Stadium. With the 3rd position in the world, the Swedish team is much more appreciated than the girls from Africa. At 5 p.m., the French team will also have the opening match of the 2023 World Cup against Jamaica.
