The 2023 Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup is a competition with frequent unexpected events. Traditional powerhouses such as Germany, Italy, and Brazil were eliminated from the group stage, and the U.S., which won the World Cup for the second consecutive time, also lost to Sweden in the round of 16.
Jamaica and Morocco are creating a drug team sensation. Jamaica finished second in Group F, beating Brazil with one win and two draws. 토토 Morocco advanced to the round of 16 by defeating Germany, ranked second in the FIFA Women’s Ranking, with two wins and one loss in Group H.
This is Jamaica’s second World Cup. In 2010, the Jamaican Football Association suspended the operation of the women’s national team due to poor performance. She began to be called up again in 2014 and participated in the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France for the first time. At that time, he had to be satisfied with his experience on the world stage with all three losses, one goal and 12 runs.
This is Morocco’s first World Cup ever. She was the first Arab country to advance to the Women’s World Cup and finished second at the 2022 Women’s African Nations Cup.
What the two teams have in common is solid defense. Jamaica blocked the opponent’s offense with systematic defense amid operations of 4-1-4-1 and 4-4-2. Based on this, he blocked three group matches without losing a point. Even though he scored only one goal, he earned points with efficient soccer. In particular, goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer was in charge of the goal with good positioning and reflexes.
Morocco also prioritizes solid defense based on 4-4-2. This is the same tactic as that of the Moroccan men’s national soccer team, which caused a sensation at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. They united around Morocco’s captain Gizlan Shevak to wash away the pain of losing 0-6 to Germany in the first group match and capture South Korea and Colombia 1-0 in a row.
In the round of 16, Jamaica will meet Colombia and Morocco will meet France to continue its sensation. The match between Jamaica and Colombia will be held at 5 p.m. on the 8th, and the match between Morocco and France will be held at 8 p.m. on the 8th.
