Will Chile or Haiti take the last spot in England Women’s World Cup group? by Michelle
England’s Lionesses are currently competing in the Arnold Clark Cup which is part of the tournaments and friendlies being played during the international break.
England have played two games already, beating Korea 4-0 and Italy 2-1. The Lionesses final match is against Belgium on Wednesday 22nd February, kick-off 7.45PM UK, at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol.
Haiti travel to Chile in the early hours of Wednesday morning (01:00 GMT) as the sides fight for the right to join Group D featuring England, China and Denmark.
Chile are ranked higher than Haiti, standing at 38th in the world, and were given a bye to the play-off final. They also have one of the world’s best goalkeepers, Christiane Endler, who won the Champions League with Lyon in May 2022
Haiti had to come through a semi-final against Senegal on Saturday and won comfortably, beating their African opponents 4-0 in Auckland. Haiti are ranked 55th in the world and their women have never reached a major global tournament – although their men did qualify in 1974. Most of their squad play in France, including 19-old-midfielder Melchie Dumornay, who recently announced she would be joining Lyon from Stade Reims this summer.
We will know who the victors are tomorrow!
