Delight in an unparalleled sporting event: the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023, taking place in Australia and New Zealand. This international women's football tournament promises to thrill fans around the world with first-class football, a lot of action and unforgettable moments.
The favourites for the tournament are, of course, the reigning world champions from the USA, who continue to boast a strong squad.
