After the FIFA Men’s World Cup 2022 which took place in Qatar, the sporting world prepares itself for the exciting and much-awaited FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, which will be jointly co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia.
The 9th edition of the tournament will be taking place from 20th July 2023 to 20th August 2023. Some of the teams which will be looking to extend their dominating performances will be USA, Canada, Australia and Germany.
Group C of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will feature Spain, Costa Rica, Zambia and Japan going head on with each other. It is the debut World Cup of Zambia and they will be facing the heat in a tight and tough group.

Prediction of Group C
We predict that Japan and Spain will be going through to the Round of 16 in the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. Both the teams are heavyweights and would be looking to win most of their games in the 1st Round.
Zambia will be making their debut in this World Cup and this is quite a historic moment for Head Coach Bruce Mwape and his team. They qualified after they finished in the 3rd position in the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Costa Rica will be making their 2nd World Cup appearance and the first since their debut in 2015. Notably, they couldn’t make it to the 2019 World Cup, that took place in Spain. The side hasn’t yet registered a victory in the FIFA Women’s World Cup and that would be high on their priority list.
