Orange Lionesses meet Iceland in 2023 World Cup qualifiers
Later, the Czech Republic (27th), Belarus (54th) and Cyprus (125th) also came out of the tube. Qualifications will take place between September 2021 and September 2022.
So far, only two European countries have been allowed to lift the World Cup. These were the Norwegian women in 1995. Germany won the world title in 2003 and 2007.
It is still unclear who should lead the Orange, a losing finalist of the last World Cup and currently number 3 in the FIFA rankings, to the third participation (after 2015 and 2019) in a world championship. The KNVB has still not found a successor for Sarina Wiegman.
After the Olympic Games this summer, the successful coach from The Hague will leave for the English federation, where she will take the footballers under her wing.
Sarina Wiegman leaves for the English federation after the Olympic Games.
Wiegman is to guide England through a group with Austria, Northern Ireland, North Macedonia, Latvia and Luxembourg. Vera Pauw was linked with Sweden, Finland, Slovakia and Georgia as Ireland’s national coach.
The winners of the nine groups will immediately qualify for the World Cup. The nine number 2s face off in a series of play-offs for the two remaining European banknotes. A third team will have another chance in the international play-offs.
