2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Football Betting Tips - Spain is the headline attraction on Day 2 of the Women’s FIFA World Cup, with Jorge Vilda’s team taking on Amelia Valverde’s Costa Rica side.
The Spanish had been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons, but they will be hoping they can now put that all behind them and focus on a competition they have a real chance of winning.
Expect a winning start for the Spanish
- 2023 FIFA World Cup Group C
- Spain Women vs Costa Rica Women
- Friday, 21st July, 2023
- Wellington Regional Stadium, Wellington, New Zealand
Spain are 1/66 to win their opening match. Costa Rica are 60/1, with the draw at 14/1. Yes, it’s fair to say the best football betting sites don’t see any shocks in this match. And it looks like the ideal fixture for Spain to have to get their World Cup campaign started
Can Spain put the last 12 months or turmoil behind them?
And the reason why Spain have had a troubled time is because of the players’ so called mutiny after their exit from the Women’s European Championships in 2022.
After their exit, 15 players all wrote to the Spanish FA saying they could no longer play for the team in the current environment. Although they didn’t state that Jorge Vilda needed to go, it was fairly clear what they meant.
The Spanish FA backed Vilda, and the 15 players were banished from the national side. Now after a troubled 12 months, the Spanish have arrived in New Zealand with three of the 15 rebels in the squad. But how will that play out in the long run?
It won’t affect them in their opening match with Costa Rica. But later in the competition when matches get more difficult, any issues within the squad may come to the fore.
