Spain Women eyes consecutive wins

Spain Women are looking to aim for their second consecutive win as they go against Zambia Women, who are from a heavy defeat. Spain is from a 3-0 victory against Costa Rica, while Zambia suffered a devastating 5-0 loss against Japan. Their opener result could affect them in the long run, as it will bring them momentum. Moreover, when it comes to the FIFA rankings, Spain is the one who is in a better spot, sitting at the sixth. Zambia on the other hand is 71 places below Spain, sitting at the 77th of the FIFA rankings. This is just the first time that these two teams will meet, following their record in their World Cup appearance. Spain and Zambia‘s first meeting will be on July 26, 2023, at 3:30 PM (GMT+8).

Spain is aiming to make something out of their strong start in the contest, as they were able to pick up a comfortable 3-0 win against Costa Rica. It only took Spain 20 minutes to score their first goal in that match. Goals from Aitana Bonmati, and Esther Gonzalez allowed Spain to score their first victory in the 2023 World Cup. However, although they were able to win that match, they are still at the second of the group stage, below Japan. They are with a disadvantage because of their goal difference, but a win in their opener is already huge for them. In their last five games, Spain were able to keep clean sheets, which will work for their advantage here. They are currently in a seven-game winning streak, which gives them a boost for their confidence in their campaign.

Following her return on their first match, Alexia Putellas is expected once again to play in this match, even only as a substitute. Athenea del Castillo, and Salma Paralluelo are both looking to lead their squad.

Women's World Cup: Zambia Women

Zambia is unfortunate coming into this match, as they suffered a devastating 5-0 defeat against Japan for their opener. It was a frustrating loss for them as it could affect their runs in the group stage, which is not helpful for them. They are already down by one goal before the break, but they were not able to climb back from that lead. During the second half, Japan dominated Zambia fully, where Zambia conceded four goals. Considering that five-goal disadvantage, they are now sitting at the rock bottom of their group standings. They badly need a win in this match if they are still aiming for a chance in the next round. However, they are without a clean sheet in their last four matches, which is not a positive sign for them to reach their aims.

It is just unfortunate that they lost Catherine Musonda for this match, as she needs to serve suspension, after a booking against Japan. Agness Musase, and Lushomo Mweemba are both expected to lead Zambia in defense.
