Can England Win The World Cup 2023?

englaand womens world cup

The 2023 Women’s World Cup is almost upon us and the Lionesses will be travelling to Australia and New Zealand in a bid to triumph once again after several impressive performances resulted in winning the European Championship last summer.

Lioness manager Sarina Wiegman has transformed the squad after taking the reigns in September 2021, taking over from ex-England full-back Phil Neville. Winning Euro 2022 within her first year in charge of the team was impressive enough but Wiegman will have her sights set on the World Cup this summer and the UK bookies seem to think that it’s a likely outcome.

What Are The Odds On England To Win The World Cup in 2023?

England are currently second favourites to win the 2023 World Cup at a best price of 9/1 with Bet365. Four-time World Cup winners USA are the bookies favourites at 5/2, which should come as no surprise given that Vlatko Andonovski’s side have won the last two tournaments with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands securing the win at France 2019.

England’s performances throughout Euro 2022 lifted the spirits of the nation and the women’s game has seen a huge increase in popularity due to their success. They showed during that tournament that they have one of the best squads in the world and players such as Georgia Stanway, Ella Toone and Keira Walsh could all shine this summer and help their team go all the way.

Their success in the European Championships will surely help them in the World Cup. Not just because of the standard of football that they displayed but also because of the experience that they gained. Against Spain in the quarter-finals they were 1-0 down with just 6 minutes of normal time remaining and were looking like they had reached the stage of elimination. However, a 84th minute equaliser from Ella Toone lifted the spirits of the team and a tremendous strike from outside of the box from Georgia Stanway in the 96th minute of the game confirmed England’s place in the semi-finals. That game would have taught the players a lesson in belief which will surely be needed at least once throughout their World Cup campaign this summer.

England Women’s World Cup Group

The Lionesses have been drawn into Group D along with Denmark, China & Haiti. None of those three teams should pose too much of a threat to England which is reflected in the extremely short odds of 1/66 for them to qualify for the knockout stages. Even to win the group, England are as short as 1/33 with some bookmakers and so if you are thinking of having a bet, you’ll probably find more value in the later stages of the tournament when England face some tougher opposition.

How Far Will England Go At The 2023 World Cup?

Being second favourites to win the tournament, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see England reach the final of the World Cup. They’re at odds of 9/4 to do so with Coral which still isn’t a hugely appealing price considering that they will likely face some talented and experienced teams in the quarters and semi-final should they get that far. They’ll be hoping to stay clear of the likes of USA, Spain, Germany and France but odds are that they’ll have to progress past a couple of them if they are to reach the final stage.

With England fully expected to progress out of Group D, the focus will be on the knockout stages and until they know who they will be facing, it’s hard to give an accurate prediction or to know whether or not there is any value in the odds of them reaching the final. A better bet may be to wait until the knockout fixtures are confirmed and back England in individual matches to progress which I’d expect would result in a greater return overall.

Can An England Player Claim The Golden Boot At The 2023 Women’s World Cup?

If last summer’s Euros showed anything, it was that England have goals in them. Beth Mead found the net six times to finish as the tournaments top goalscorer and the Arsenal forward will have her eyes set on the Golden Boot at this years World Cup. Alessia Russo bagged four goals with Fran Kirby, Georgia Stanway, Ella Toone and the now retired Ellen White all notched up two.

Fans will certainly be expecting goals from the Lionesses throughout the tournament but can any one player claim the Golden Boot?

Rachel Daly is the shortest odds out of the England players to finish as the tournaments top goalscorer. The England forward has scored 13 goals in 69 appearances for her country so far and an impresses 22 goals in as many games for Aston Villa last season.

Alessia Russo is the next England player in the Golden Boot odds table and is priced at 18/1 with Coral. Russo scored 22 goals in 46 appearances for Manchester United before moving to Arsenal recently and currently has a tally of 11 goal sin 22 games for England.

Although seeing an England player claim the Golden Boot award would be great to see, fans are hoping for a repeat of Euro 2022 which lifted spirits of the nation and could be considered a major catalyst in the development of women’s football.

Good Luck England!
