Women’s World Cup group stage’s top three performers

With only a few matches left to be played in the 2023 Women’s World Cup qualifying groups, five teams have impressed immensely in the group stage, making their marks in New Zealand and Australia.


  • Japan has scored the most goals in this competition so far, with eleven goals scored in three games. They have announced themselves to the world, and it looks like they make more victims as they craft their way to glory. They are currently the most in-form team in the tournament, and here’s their journey so far.
  • Japan kicked off its group-stage affairs against Zambia. Japan opened the scoring in the first half and ran riot in the second half by scoring four without reply to give Zambia a nightmare of a debut. Japanese midfielder Miyazawa was the star of the game as she bagged a brace.
  • In their second group stage game, Japan played Costa Rica and delivered a masterclass again. A triumph with a 2-0 scoreline was secured through the efforts of Hikaru Naomoto and Aoba Fujino. The decisive goals were netted in quick succession during the first half, separated by a mere two-minute interval.
  • In another display of dominance, Japan handed Spain a humiliating 4-0 loss in their last group-stage game. “Project Blue Lock” seems to be the real deal, as the win meant they comfortably won Group C and did not concede a single goal in the tournament.


  • Undoubtedly, the Lioness is a top contender in the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament. It’s not them accruing three wins in three group-stage games; it’s how they have overcome an unconvincing start to the tournament. It’s a beautiful sight, and one player that stands out for the Lioness in this huge turn-around is Chelsea’s forward, Lauren James.
  • England defeated Haiti 1-0 to begin their 2023 World Cup run. It was an unconvincing performance by the Lioness, who looked lackluster and were not playing the exciting football they are known for.
  • They went on to play Denmark in their second group-stage match, where Lauren James was introduced to the world. In her first game of the tournament, the forward put England ahead early in the game with a beautiful strike in the first half to make it two wins out of two for the Lioness.
  • England faced China in their last game of the tournament to secure the first position, and they ran riot against the Asian country. It was Lauren James’s show as she scored two goals and assisted three to lead England to a 6-1 win over China. The Lioness’ dominant win over China meant they scored eight goals in the group stage while conceding just once. They have indeed made their mark in the tournament so far.


  • Sweden kicked off their campaign in group G against South Africa. Following a scoreless opening half, Hildah Magaia broke the deadlock for South Africa in the 48th minute. However, the lead was short-lived as Fridolina Rolfö equalized shortly to give Sweden a fighting chance. It all came down to the wire, as the Swedes clinched a triumphant victory in the dying moments via Amanda Ilestedt’s decisive header in the 90th minute, earning Sweden an opening game win.
  • Contrary to a difficult start to the tournament, Sweden came alive in their second game of the group stage against Italy. Italy, as a matter of fact, got off to a blazing start, but Sweden eventually took over six minutes before the half’s end when Ilestedt gave them the lead. Before the half-finished, Rolfo and Blacksteinus scored two goals in rapid succession. Ilestedt scored again in the second half, and Blomqvist added the final goal to cap the thrashing.
  • Sweden rounded up their group-stage exploits with a routine 2-0 win over Argentina. Blomqvist scored the game’s opening goal in the second half, and just before the end of regular time, she was fouled in the penalty area. Elin Rubensson, however, successfully converted the ensuing penalty kick to give her team the victory.

The teams mentioned above are the standout performers of the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 group stage, and they are tipped to make a long run in the competition. They might even win it all as they have shown great abilities at this stage of the competition. For more Women’s World Cup news, make sure to follow FBR.
