Vlatko Andonovski has only two months to submit his final roster for the 2023 Women’s World Cup. There could be some unexpected additions to the 23-woman roster as the USWNT navigates injuries, notably that of key player Mallory Swanson, who is likely to miss the World Cup.

England (+340) will miss captain Leah Williamson, who suffered a torn ACL in her match for Arsenal in the Women’s Super League against Manchester United. Williamson was poised to play a critical role for England, playing either center back or center defensive midfield. England attacker Beth Mead will fight to return for the World Cup after suffering an ACL injury back in November, though it seems unlikely.

2023 Women’s World Cup Update

The 2023 Women’s World Cup is set to kickoff in Australia and New Zealand in July.

The USWNT are the defending champions and favorites to win again at +300 after qualifying for the World Cup with a 5-0 win over Jamaica in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship. England, Germany, Spain and France are also priced shorter than any other country. England are second-favorites to win the tournament at +340, then odds jump from France at +850 to Australia, who are listed at +1400.

In the USWNT’s last two World Cup wins, they were co-favorites in 2019 and favorites in 2015.

This will be the first Women’s World Cup with 32 qualified teams competing in the tournament. In 2019, only 24 teams played in the group stage.

The USWNT will compete in Group E, alongside Vietnam, Portugal and 2019 World Cup finalists Netherlands.

USWNT World Cup Odds

The USWNT will fight to win their third World Cup in a row under new head coach Vlatko Andonovski, who will compete in his first World Cup after Jill Ellis stepped away from the team. No team, men’s or women’s, has won three consecutive World Cups.

USA’s roster will contain a healthy mix of veterans like Alex Morgan and Becky Sauerbrunn to go with younger players like Sophia Smith, who will make her World Cup debut.

When the USWNT had to navigate recent injuries among some of their stars like Catarina Macario, Christen Press, Sam Mewis and Tobin Heath, the squad suffered a three-game losing streak in October, the team’s first since 1993. The friendlies were against England, Spain and Germany, the three other top-four favorites to win the World Cup.

Most of the injured players should be set to play in time for the World Cup. While they were absent, Smith and Swanson had the opportunity to be key leaders for the national squad. Unfortunately, Swanson sustained a knee injury in the team’s match against the Republic of Ireland and will likely miss the World Cup.
