Match Preview

England have never won the World Cup in their 4 World Cup appearances. This is gonna be their fifth time competing for the title and it feels like this is gonna be their best chance to win it in a while. 

England failed to go past the semi-final stage in their last two World Cups but will be looking to change that now. They're one of the strongest contenders who are expected to stop arch rivals, USA from completing the three peat of World Cups.

Millie Bright's take on the squad being plagued by injuries

"Unfortunately, injuries are a part of football," said Bright, who replaced Williamson as captain for the tournament. "We have to look forward and move forward. We have an amazing group of players and staff, and everyone has stepped up. We're ready to go."

Sarina Wiegman, who finished runners-up with the Netherlands in 2019, has enjoyed considerable success during her time at England. She has won England the European Championship and Finalissima in 2022 and lost just one out of her 32 games in charge.

With the team they've got no one could see England losing a lot of matches in the tournament, especially in the Group stages. Meanwhile, Haiti is gonna be making their World Cup debut at Brisbane stadium.

Haiti are in 87th place in the FIFA World Rankings but we shouldn't count them out at all. They've got a nice team who loves to compete but we already witnessed that when they won the intercontinental playoffs and qualified for the World Cups for the very first time.

England vs Haiti is expected to be one of the easier challenges for the European champions but that shouldn't distract us from the fact that it is a thing of huge honour for Haiti to conpete in the biggest stage of the world.
