Women’s World Cup: All or nothing for England and Spain

By Sunday night the 2023 Women’s World Cup champions will be confirmed as Spain take on England in the final at Stadium Australia in Sydney.

After winning the European Championship title last year, England are looking to secure the biggest prize of them all when they face Spain in Sunday’s World Cup final.

The Lionesses have been a revelation under Sarina Wiegman and now they are potentially 90 minutes away from being crowned world champions.

England have shown they can cope with the big occasion well and beating co-hosts Australia in the semi-finals at Stadium Australia demonstrated just that.

The Lionesses had a wobble when Matildas’ star Sam Kerr equalised after Ella Toone’s opener for England.

However, the European champions showed their class in the end and goals from Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo helped secure a 3-1 victory for England.

Spain will offer England a much sterner test, with La Roja impressing with a late double against Sweden in their semi-final in Auckland.

Salma Paralluelo and Olga Carmona scored the all-important goals to take Spain through to the final.

Revenge will be a motivator for Spain, who lost out to England in the quarter-finals of the European Championships last summer.

Spain are 1.80 to Lift The Trophy, while England are 1.95 to take the title in Sydney.

In the warm-up to the main event on Sunday, Australia and Sweden will meet in Brisbane on Saturday to decide who claims the bronze.

Getting up for a third-place playoff can be difficult after the disappointment of a semi-final defeat but having the home crowd at Lang Park will come as a massive boost for Australia.

It has been an outstanding tournament from the Matildas, who knocked out both Denmark and France on the way to the semis.

As for Sweden, beating pre-tournament favourites USA in the round of 16 was a major scalp, before overcoming former world champions Japan.

The Swedes looked set to take Spain into extra-time before Carmona’s 89th-minute goal broke Scandinavian hearts.

Sweden are the slight favourites To Finish Third at 1.75, while Australia are 2.00 to claim the bronze and finish their tremendous tournament on a high in Brisbane.
