World Cup 2023 LIVE: Today’s results and latest news

What to expect at the 2023 Women’s World Cup | You ask the questions

France kicks off their Women’s World Cup against Jamaica while the group stages continue in Australia and New Zealand.

Les Bleues enter the tournament under new coach Herve Renard after Corrine Diacre’s controversial reign ended just four months before the tournament. France’s top-flight talent squad is being tested after being plagued by injuries ahead of the World Cup. Players like Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Delphine Cascarino are out.

The Netherlands, runners-up four years ago under Sarina Wiegman, beat World Cup debutants Portugal 1-0 in Group E thanks to Stefanie van der Gragt’s early header. The Dutch lost to the USA in the 2019 final and later meet the defending champions in the group stage. The US began their defense on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Vietnam.

Elsewhere, England opened their Women’s World Cup season with a win, but the Lionesses were completely eclipsed by Haiti in a close game in Brisbane. Georgia Stanway’s renewed first-half penalty was enough to give England a narrow win, but goalkeeper Mary Earps had to make a big stop late to defend the lead.

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

90+2 mins: RED CARD! Oh no! This is a nightmare for Jamaica! Their captain, talisman and superstar Khadija Shaw was sent off for a second bookable offence.

She was brilliant in that game – literally leading from the front with her tireless pressing as the sole centre-forward. But she’s already booked and unnecessarily pouncing on Wendie Renard. She maintains her innocence but it’s a clear foul and the referee has no choice but to give her a second yellow card.

The Man City star will not only miss the final minutes of this game, but also the next group game against Panama. That could be vital.

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

85 minutes: With five minutes left, Jamaica wins a corner and Blackwood puts a dangerous ball into the mixer. However, Shaw’s shot from the turn goes over the bar.

A draw would be a great result for Jamaica, ranked 43rd in the world and France 5th, but a win would be seismic

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

HALFTIME! Jamaica will be very pleased with that first-half performance. To be honest they outplayed France and it wouldn’t be unfair if they were up front.

Their pressing was brilliant, pressing France and pushing them back. Bunny Shaw, Drew Spence and Atlanta Primus were the leaders of the Reggae Girlz. Can they break through in the second half or will Herve Renard make the necessary adjustments for Les Bleues?

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

42 mins: CLOSE! Khadija “Bunny” Shaw makes a mighty run-up (think Roberto Carlos) and fires in a free-kick from about 30 yards out. France goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin desperately dives to the left, but the Exocet just misses the post. Great effort.

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

20 minutes: That was a really good start from Jamaica. They win the fights in the middle of the park and are disciplined in their form.

France are forced to save the ball in defense as some shots are blocked. The Bleues need to settle in here and start playing the possession-oriented football they’re known for.

Women’s World Cup 2023: France 0-0 Jamaica

Not surprisingly, Sydney and France have come out on top so far. They break out of the deep and run towards Jamaica’s defenders. Not an early breakthrough, however.

Women’s World Cup 2023: France vs Jamaica

The last game of the day at the Women’s World Cup starts in about five minutes. France, who were semi-finalists at last summer’s EURO, meet Jamaica.

So far the underdogs like Haiti and Portugal have really impressed and caused some problems for the ‘bigger’ sides, even if they lacked the power in front of goal.

Jamaica failed to earn a point in their tournament debut in 2019. So can they go one step further this time and cause an upset against Les Bleues?

England underestimated Haiti in the World Cup opener and exposed their Achilles’ heel

Mary Earps couldn’t do anything but scream in frustration. The shaky nature of England’s defenses was thankfully offset by Haiti’s lack of power, but their irritation was still clear and justified.

Again and again the simple things just weren’t done right. Balls were allowed to fly over heads, lunges were delayed as passes flew through gaps, passes were sent erratically. It wasn’t the start to the World Cup that England had hoped for.

England were ahead but that wasn’t the feeling you would get from the players’ body language. The half-time whistle blew Brisbane and heads bowed as they retreated through the tunnel.

The truth was obvious: they were lucky to take the lead.
