Women's World Cup today - your guide to Saturday's three games


With the 2023 Women’s World Cup now in full swing, there are four more matches to watch on Saturday on the first four-match day of the tournament.

The Lionesses open their tournament when England take on Haiti, while defending champions USA and former champions Japan also feature in their respective groups. A lot more will be known about some of the favorite races at the end of Saturday.

Here’s everything you need to know about the four matches at the Women’s World Cup on July 22.

Zambia and Japan will complete the first round of matches in Group C after Spain v Costa Rica took place on Friday.

Spain are favorites to win that group and showed their class in their opening 3-0 win, but Japan are a very good side who will be eyeing a top spot ahead of their European counterparts.

Many teams have interrupted preparations for this tournament. Zambia coach Bruce Mwape is now accused of sexual misconduct but remains in the position.

There is a lot of hope and anticipation around the Lionesses in the Women’s World Cup qualifiers. They begin their campaign on Saturday morning against Haiti, one of the bottom teams in the tournament.

The European champions are expected to produce big winners against Haiti, ranked 53rd in the world, but upsets can happen as we have already seen in this tournament. Perhaps the best news for England fans is that it’s not too early in the morning.

It has the potential to be a very tight game. Denmark and China are fairly mediocre teams coming into this tournament knowing that they are fighting each other to finish second in Group D behind England.

Both teams will be hoping Haiti can pull off an upset against England, a result that would blow the group apart and give Denmark and China real motivation to grab the three points.

That’s why Saturday could be so revealing. There’s a first look at England mid-morning, but for those in Europe who want to get up really, really early, there’s also the USWNT’s first outing.

They take on one of the motor teams in Vietnam in the first match of Group E. The United States aims to make history by becoming the first men’s or women’s team to win the World Cup in three consecutive attempts.

There could be multiple goals in this one and they could all go to the same team.
