Prediction of Group A
We predict that Norway will be topping the group stage. They have been quite a dominant force in women’s football and have also won the FIFA Women’s World Cup title on 1 occasion.
They have played 40 games so far in World Cups and have won 24 of these matches. One of the underdogs in this Group is the co-host, New Zealand.
New Zealand have lost all their matches in the year 2023 and need a miracle if they are to advance to the Round of 16. In the SheBelieves Cup as well, New Zealand had a dismal outing.
They lost 0-1 to Iceland, followed by a 0-5 drubbing at the hands of USA and then had a 0-0 stalemate against Czechia.
