FIFA Women’s World Cup History

After two decades of unofficial international tournaments, the first official FIFA Women’s World Cup was staged in China in 1991. A sell-out crowd of 63,000 saw USA defeat Norway 2-1 in the inaugural World Cup final.

That victory for USA was a sign of things to come with the Stars and Stripes going on to win three more World Cup tournaments in 1999, 2015 and 2019.

The eight previous World Cups staged have produced just four winners. As well as the USA, the trophy has been lifted by Norway, Germany (twice) and Japan.

England and Spain: World Cup Record

England’s first World Cup appearance came in 1995. The Lionesses progressed from the group stage before they were swept aside 3-0 by eventual finalists, Germany.

In all, England have contested five FIFA Women’s World Cups prior to this year’s tournament. England have lost in the semi-final in each of the past two tournaments.

In Women’s World Cup terms, Spain are relative rookies. La Roja are competing in just their third World Cup having first qualified for the tournament in 2015.

Spain failed to get out of their group on their World Cup debut in 2015 before exiting the 2019 tournament in the round of 16. Reaching this year’s final is the culmination of a remarkable rise up the women’s game for a nation that has been at the forefront of the men’s game for decades.

Road to Sydney

Spain were the standout side in the group stage despite suffering a 4-0 loss against Japan in their third and final group stage fixture. By the time Spain came up against Japan they had already booked their place in the last sixteen thanks to comprehensive wins against both Costa Rica (3-0) and Zambia (5-0).

Spain bounced back from the Japan loss by sweeping Switzerland aside 5-1 in the round of 16. Spain needed extra-time to beat 2019 runners-up, Netherlands in the quarter-final before edging out Sweden in the semi-final.

England remain unbeaten in this year’s World Cup despite getting their tournament off to a slow start. England needed a penalty to claim a 1-0 win over minnows, Haiti in their opening group game before earning a second successive 1-0 against Denmark on match day two. The Lionesses rounded off the group stage with a dominant 6-1 win against China but were again unconvincing against Nigeria in the round of 16. Having drawn 0-0, England edged past Nigeria on penalties.

In the quarter-final, England defeated Colombia 2-1 before producing arguably their best performance of the tournament when edging out hosts, Australia 3-1 in the semi-final.

Selection Dilemma

England manager, Sarina Wiegman has a major decision to make when selecting her starting lineup. Lauren James was one of England star performers throughout the group stage and already has three goals and three assists to her name at the World Cup. However, the 21-year-old has missed the last two matches following her red card in the round of 16. Ella Toone was drafted into the starting eleven to replace the suspended James and has played a starring role in those two matches. Toone scored the opening goal in Wednesday’s semi-final and would be incredibly unlucky to lose her starting berth for Sunday’s final.

World Cup Betting Tips

Spain are favourites to win Sunday’s World Cup final and 6/4 looks great value to win in 90 minutes.

Historically, World Cup final matches seldom produce a huge amount of goals however, we’re expecting Sunday’s final to buck that trend. Spain have scored sixteen goals already in this year’s tournament whilst England are also averaging over two goals per game with thirteen goals in six matches. Over 2.5 match goals is our bet of the day at 13/10 whilst both team to score is 10/11.

We’re not opposed to combining a couple of the bets mentioned above; Spain to win in 90 minutes and both teams to score is a huge 5/1 at BoyleSports.

Barcelona’s flying winger, Salma Paralluelo has been one of the breakthrough stars at this summer’s World Cup. The 19-year-old has played a starring role for Spain and scored off the bench in both the quarter-final and semi-final matches La Roja were involved in. Despite scoring in back-to-back knockout matches, Paralluelo is likely to start Sunday’s final on the bench. As an impact sub with lightning pace, she remains very easy to back in the goal scorer markets. At 8/1, Paralluelo is a huge price to open the scoring whilst she is 10/3 to score at any time. However, we love the 8/1 on offer for the Spanish super-sub to score the last goal of the game.
