Women’s World Cup 2023: Third-place play-off and Final match

The 2023 Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand Final is set.

The final match would take place between England and Spain on Sunday,while the third

place play-off would be between Sweden and Australia a day before.

The semi final matches were tightly contested and England and Spain came out on top

against Australia and Sweden respectively.

England, off a comeback win against Colombia in the quarter finals were slight favourites

against co-host Australia. But it was by no means an easy match for them. The Lioness

took the lead 9 minutes before half-time before Australia superstar Sam Kerr produced a

long-range stunner to draw the sides level in the second half. Goals by Lauren Hemp and

Alessia Russo ended Australia’s hopes as the Matildas went in search of an equalizer.

England sealed their first ever appearance in the Women's world Cup after back to back

semi-final disappointment in previous tournaments.

Olga Carmona fired a stunning 89th-minute winner as Spain prevailed amid remarkable

late drama to beat Sweden 2-1 and reach their first Women's World Cup final.

A listless game almost entirely devoid of goalmouth action came to life inside the final 10

minutes, with teenager Salma Paralluelo, who was the match winner against Netherlands

in the previous round came off the bench to dispatch an opportunistic first-time finish.

Sweden hit back when their own substitutes combined in the 87th minute, Rebecka

Blomqvist coolly dispatching Lina Hurtig's knockdown. But Carmona struck to break

Swedish hearts and condemn the Scandinavian country to their third semifinal defeat in the

past four World Cups and to set up a Final contest against England.


The third place match would take place on the Saturday,19


th of August at the Suncorp

Stadium, while the final showdown between England and Spain kicks-off Sunday, 20
