2023 FIFA Women's World Cup Thread

Draw for next summer's tournament was held earlier today. Here was how the draw ended up:


Tournament is being co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, which will likely mean a lot of odd start times in this part of the world. All of the U.S. group stage matches will be played in New Zealand. The Group A play-off winner that will be put into the U.S.'s group will be either Cameroon, Thailand, or Portugal. The Group B play-off winner that will go into England's group will be either Senegal, Haiti, or Chile. The Group C play-off winner that will go into France's group will be either Chinese Taipei, Paraguay, Papua New Guinea, or Panama.

The U.S. opens play on July 22 in Auckland vs. Vietnam.
The first two of the inter-confederation playoff finals were held early today.

Portugal defeated Cameroon 2:1. Portugal now enters Group E with the U.S., Vietnam, and Netherlands.

Haiti defeated Chile 1:2. Haiti now enters Group D with England, Denmark, and China.

This is the first FIFA Women's World Cup appearance for Portugal and Haiti.

Paraguay and Panama will face in the final inter-confederation playoff tomorrow.
