The start of this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup competition in Australia and New Zealand is only a few days away - and we simply cannot wait.
England’s Lionesses are expected to go far in the tournament, however they will face some competition from their Group D rivals.
So who will England have to beat in order to make their way into the knockout stages of this summer’s tournament?
England are currently favourites to progress from the group, followed by Denmark, then China and finally, Haiti.
Here is a quick preview of the other sides in Group D.
This summer’s competition will mark Denmark’s first appearance at a Women’s World Cup since 2007.
The side has recently secured wins against the likes of Japan and Sweden, which will buoy their confidence in causing an upset in Australia and New Zealand.
Long-standing manager Lars Sondergaard has already announced he will stand down from his role at the end of the tournament.
The key player for Denmark in this tournament will be Bayern Munich and former Chelsea midfielder and forward Pernille Harder.
It has been a long time since China performed well in a Women’s World Cup tournament, having finished runners-up in 1999.
A notable former player of the side, Shui Qingxia, is now the head coach, bringing along plenty of excitement and hope that the team will progress moving forward.
Racing Louisville’s Wang Shuang, who represents one of only a few of China's players to be plying their club trade outside of their home nation, is certainly one to watch.
The 2023 competition marks a momentous event for the Haiti national side as it is their first.
Haiti is led by head coach Nicolas Delepine, who splits his responsibilities with French second tier side Grenoble, which is the nation where 15 players named in Haiti’s extended squad ply their club trade.
For example, striker Roselord Borgella currently stars for top tier side Dijon, Kethna Louis has recently signed for Montpellier and Nerilia Mondesir was amongst the top scorers in the French top division last season.
