England’s best performance was 3rd place in 2015.
This tournament, from the group stage, England defeated Haiti (1-0), Denmark (1-0), and China (6-1) in a row, and took 1st place in Group D with three consecutive wins, and England, on the rise,
defeated Nigeria in the round of 16 on penalties. In the quarterfinals, they won 2-1 against Colombia.
In the semi-final held on the 16th, they defeated Australia, the host country,
3-1 and succeeded in advancing to the final for the first time in history.

it did not have a large presence in women’s soccer, reaching the round of 16 for the first time in the 2019 French tournament,
but it showed rapid development in this tournament.
Spain, which defeated Costa Rica (3-0) and Zambia (5-0) in turn in the group stage,
lost 0-4 in the third group stage and advanced to the round of 16 in second place in the group.
Afterwards, they beat Switzerland 5-1 in the round of 16, the Netherlands 2-1 in the quarter-final, and defeated Sweden 2-1 in the semi-final,
defeating European teams one after another and making it to the final.

so this final also has the nature of a ‘return match’.

As the competition for the championship narrowed down to England and Spain,

while Spain’s Henifer Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati and Alba Redondo each scored three goals.

was eliminated in the quarterfinals,
there is a good chance of becoming the top scorer among the players in the final.

will play for third and fourth place at 5:00 p.m. on the 19th at the Brisbane Stadium in Australia.
