Candidate teams to win the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand

Less than a month is left for the 2023 Women's Soccer World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20.

Although there is still some time to go, after what we saw last year and the friendlies played in 2023, you are here with five teams who have a chance to win this World Cup.

The Spanish team continues to chase the title that could crown this great, extraordinary generation of footballers. However, after 15 players resigned, non-sporting issues over the national team's call-up have left Spain in a quandary. Also, don't know about Alexia Butellas because she supports her teammates but didn't send an email asking the federation not to call so the coach could call her.

It remains to be seen how well he returns from injury. With Alexia clearly in their ranks, Spain is more likely to play a prominent role.

Like Germany, the Netherlands also suffered a slight decline, dropping to eighth place in the FIFA rankings, however, let's not forget that we are talking about the current runner-up in the world. The World Cup aims to improve that status. Additionally, they have one of the best players in recent years in their ranks, Leek Martens, which makes them an even more dangerous team.

The German team is not enjoying its best moment and it has been a decade since they won the title. However, there are enough quality players to go far in the competition and have risen to second place in the FIFA rankings. Because of its 8 European Championships and its 2 World Cups, Germany is always a team to be reckoned with in any competition.

The England team is one of the most developed teams in recent years and is also the reigning champion of the Euro Cup. The Three Lions have an excellent defensive team and scoring a goal against them will not be easy. Also, they come with a positive attitude bolstered by that Euro Cup and where they beat Brazil in the finals at Wembley.

He is the reigning champion and no doubt the favorite to retain the title. The Stars and Stripes have won four World Cups and they won the last two in a row (2015 and 2019). Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Rose Lavelle and the rest of the team will need to be at their best to beat company.
