After England’s victory, here are the Women’s World Cup champions
The national team led by Sarina Wegmann will be named European champions next year. Also follow Brazil, USA, China and South Africa
If we try to examine the future of women’s football, less than a year from now, with the World Horizon 2023, which takes place in Australia and New Zealand, we will see the faces of Sarina Wegmann, Pia Sundaj, Vlatko Andonovsky, Choi coaches of Kingxia, Desiree Ellis and Nicolas Demin, coaches of England, Brazil and the United States China, South Africa, and Papua New Guinea, respectively; The national teams that won the six continental championships this year. Indeed, thanks to these, Brazil, China, the United States and South Africa have already qualified for the world championship, while England must pass from UEFA qualifying Group D – they lack a bit of math – and Papua New Guinea will not be there because the only place Oceania has It is already set for New Zealanders, as hosts.
In perspective, the most interesting face is that of Sarina Wegmann, who as a coach won two European Championships, one with the Netherlands and this with England, the first in history, after two seconds and fourth place.. England is the most growing national team in recent years, having finished third and fourth in the last two World Cups and the semi-finals at Euro 2017; Not to mention, Weigmann led the Netherlands to the final in 2019, losing the world title to the United States. The most famous of these is certainly Pia Sundhag, the Swedish former European champion as a player, who led the United States to two Olympic gold medals and the Algarve Cup three times. With Brazil the new winner of the Copa America, but it must also be said that Verdioro has won eight of the nine editions, coming second only once, as he was able to say they had no rivals in South America. Pia Sundhag in 2011, at the helm of the United States, lost on penalties one of the most exciting World Championship finals to Japan and next year she will be at the start of the World Cup with a lot of experience behind her but with a team facing the generational change that seems to have taken the place of Marta , even in the hearts of fans.
Shui Qingxia She is not a new face in Chinese women’s football, but as a coach she is definitely a new face in the world. First of all, she is the first player to sit on the bench in the national team after playing there. As a player she has won the Women’s Asian Cup five times, for the first time in 1986, being part of this generation capable of winning seven times in a row. On his first date with the continental championship, he led China to the victory they had been missing since 2006, after his predecessors finished third in a row. She, too, is facing a generational change, realizing that the team must improve from different points of view, pushing players and gaining experience abroad to improve and bring them back to the national team.
The United States is the only representative of this group that has a man on the bench, Vlatko Andonovsky, after trials with Pia Sundhag and Gillian Ellis, the only person to equalize Vittorio Pozzo by winning the World Cup twice in a row (2015 and 2019) with the team, stars and stripes. Andonovsky took charge of the national team after the French World Cup and won, in addition to the CONCACAF Women’s Championship, two SheBelieves Cups. In 2023 he will present himself in Oceania as a World and Continental Champion, a weight his group will surely know how to endure, to see if he can do so too, who has received a heavy legacy from his predecessors. A team that still has to support the two stars over thirty, Alex Morgan And the Megan Rapinoe.
Desiree Ellis And the Nicolas Demin They certainly deserve to be a lot wise, even if the second one has to watch the World Cup on TV or from the stands. Both, in fact, led South Africa and Papua New Guinea to a historic result: winning the continental championship for the first time. Both are after an endless series of placements and runners-up. And if ocean football has a good translator in New Zealand, considering that Australia has been in the AFC since 2006, along with the CAF, they take pride in not making it to the final stages of the World Cup. But women’s football passes here too, from these faces and these stories, enriching itself game by game: interest, audience, media interest and sponsors, in the order you prefer.
