The United States were the favourites to lift the title again after winning the showpiece competition in 2015 and 2019.

However, the Americans were denied a possible three-peat after they crashed out in the Round of 16 on penalties to Sweden.

England will be aiming to build on their glory at the Euros last summer and win the World Cup for the first time. 

Manager Sarina Wiegman, who was beaten in the final four years ago with the Netherlands, will believe that the Lionesses can go all the way in a major tournament for the second time in two years.

Women’s World Cup 2023: When and where is it?

The 2023 Women’s World Cup began on Thursday, July 20 and will last for a month until Sunday, August 20.

It is taking place in Australia and New Zealand with the neighbouring countries sharing hosting duties.

This means that there will of course be a huge time difference with the UK.

Australia is ten hours ahead of the UK while New Zealand is 12 hours ahead so all fixtures will take place in the morning or early afternoon.
