The Spanish women’s soccer team was included in Group B of the European qualification phase for the 2023 World Cup, which will be played in Australia and New Zealand, together with the combined Scotland, Ukraine, Hungary and the Faroe Islands, to which It will be measured between September 2021 and September 2022.
Spanish coach Jorge Vilda appreciated the fate of the draw held today at UEFA headquarters. “Right now our focus is on the Eurocup, which is next summer. We will start playing the qualifying games in September, which will also serve us in preparation for the Eurocup, but without forgetting that we want to be in that World Cup, “he said.
Vilda gave some first brushstrokes on the rivals in the race to be in the World Cup. “Scotland is a team that plays on the counterattack, with many players who are in the English League, that is, they have a high level. The last results we have had against them have not been positive for us and that will be an extra motivation, “he said.
“Then we have Ukraine, which is a tough team. In lower categories we know what it is to play against them. The players know that it will be difficult, “he warned.
He also warned about the other two rivals. “Both Hungary and the Faroe Islands were very high in their hype, which means they were the ones with the best rankings. They will demand the best of us to win the games and qualify for the World Cup, which is what we want ”, he concluded.
