Womens’ World Cup group stage up for grabs

World Cup contenders for the FIFA Women’s World Cup are leading their respective groups, and Sweden is one of the many favorites to go far in the tournament. Today, Sweden extended their Group G lead with a 5 to 0 victory over Italy. Sweden now extends their lead over Italy with 6 points to their 3 with 1 game left in the group stage. France has been a surprise thus far and upset favorite Brazil with a 2 to 1 victory. France heads Group F with 4 points over Jamaica. Jamaica got a game winning goal over Panama scoring their second-ever goal in a World Cup by Allyson Swaby. Tonight’s matchup will have South Korea taking on Morocco in Group H.

That is a must win for both teams as both lost their opening matches. Germany leads the group with 3 points and look to extend their lead as they face Colombia tomorrow, Sunday July 30, 2023.

The excitement that is felt in New Zealand for this World Cup, many fans are taking to social media to share their own experiences watching on all platforms in the comfort of their own homes. The tournament has brought out great competition and as we head into the last group stage games, we cannot help but to preview the Women’s USA National team as they prepare against a Portugal team that comes into the game with everything to play for. Portugal has 3 points in the tournament and is still alive to quite possibly win the group if they can capture a victory over USA. The Americans look to secure the group win with a victory and await the result from Netherlands against Vietnam as both Netherlands and USA are tied with 4 points leading into the final game. It is imperative for USA to capture the win to lead into the knockout rounds as favorites and head of the group to face a team that qualified second in a different group. To summarize, the USA understands what is on the line, “The objective is to win the game and get out of the group and hopefully win the group. It's to survive and move on. We know where we want to go, and we know that we don’t have a lot of time to do it.”
