A month-long tournament is about to come to an end as the final of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup is set to take place on the 20th of August in Sydney, Australia. Both the teams have played extraordinary football and the World Cup trophy is nothing short of what they deserve, even though only one team is going to get their hands on the trophy. Spain are looking to win their first major trophy, while both nations are hoping to lift the Women's World Cup for the very first time.

Having scored 17 goals at the Women's World Cup, La Roja are the leading scorers at the tournament, proving that they have the firepower to trouble the European champions. Sarina Wiegman has now reached four consecutive major tournament finals, but she will be looking to avoid a repeat of the 2019 final when her Netherlands side were beaten 2-0 by the USA. England may be able to draw inspiration from the fact that they edged out Spain over 120 minutes to win last year's meeting in the European Championships quarter-final.
