On August 20, the FIFA Women’s World Cup final will take place at the Australia Stadium in Sydney, where the national teams of Spain and England will meet. The global betting company 1xBet presents the opponents and analyzes their chances of winning.
The Spanish national team, for a long time, could not even reach the final stage of the World Cup, but since 2015 the team has made serious progress. At first, La Furia Roja played in the group stage, in 2019, it made it to the playoffs, and now it has reached its historic final. The current success and sound game of the Spaniards is a classic combination of experience and youth.
Veterans who have passed many important matches in their careers lead young and talented football players. The game of experienced 33-year-old Hermoso and 32-year-old Zornoza is organically complemented by 22-year-old Coll and 23-year-old Carmona. The personnel policy of coach Jorge Vilda fully justified itself – the Spaniards confidently went through the entire tournament. Like the Spanish men’s international, this team likes the ball possession but doesn’t need control for control’s sake. Vilda has built a team that can score with a cross and from an unconventional set-piece, as they did in the semi-final victory against Sweden. The only question is whether these qualities will be enough to defeat a powerful, athletic and thirsty opponent.
This world cup has already become the most successful for the British – previously, their only achievement was the “bronze” of 2015. The Lionesses went through the group stage, but already at the ⅛ final stage, they had to demonstrate all their strength of character. In the match against Nigeria, England fought back in the minority for the entire overtime. They survived and then outplayed their rivals in a penalty shootout. In the quarterfinals with Colombia, the Lionesses had to bounce back for the first time in the tournament, but thanks to goals from Hemp and Russo, this opponent was also passed. The semi-final with Australia turned out to be combative and productive, but in the final stage, the English were more accurate. This team loves to score from flank crosses and crosses, can punish opponents in a quick counterattack, and its central defenders are great at starting attacks with long diagonal passes. Everything seems to be simple, but this game model has worked perfectly so far. Will it be the key to success in the final?
Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman took charge of the England team almost two years ago – on the eve of the qualifying round for the World Cup. During all this time, the Lionesses have not lost a single official match and won the European Championship. They can be called the final favorite, but England’s performance at the FIFA Women’s World Cup was not flawless and left chances for rivals. The Spaniards are extremely dangerous and motivated, their football looks more organic than their opponents. La Furia Roja is following in the footsteps of Argentina’s men’s national team and is ready to turn from a shadow favorite into a legitimate world champion.
