China chase down glory at this Summer’s World Cup!

The China Women’s International Team qualify for the World Cup for the Eighth time in their history.

China have qualified for every single Women’s World Cup bar one, making this year’s competition their eighth World Cup. Only in 2011, did the national team not qualify and their most successful World Cup was back in 1999, when they came runners-up to USA who beat China on penalties 5-4, after a goalless 120 minutes of football. There have been eight previous Women’s World Cup competitions with only four winners; USA (4), Germany (2), Japan (1), Norway (1). China are hoping to be as successful in this World Cup as they have been in previous years.

Although China have had multiple success’ in previous World Cups, they face a very difficult group stage ahead of them, including current European Champions. China are in Group D of the 2023 Women’s World Cup which includes; China, England, Denmark and Haiti. China will have to get past current European and Finalissima Champions, England, plus a difficult Denmark and Haiti before being able to progress to the round of 16.

China’s manager, Shui Qingxia, has spoken about China’s preparation for The World Cup this Summer. "We have been focusing on tactical practice recently," Shui said. "We already finished the physical fundamentals previously in Haikou. Now we switch to tactics to get ready for playing overseas."

Qingxia went onto discuss how she believes the Chinese squad does not have enough young talent in the team. "Honestly, I don't think we have enough young blood. It would be better if we have more," she said. "Of course, they will have to go through some steeling, regardless of success or failure. That's how players grow." Despite not having enough young talent in the Chinese side, Shui Qingxia is confident is her sides ability for the World Cup and she believes in the teams potential.

We now have to wait and see how well China's International side will play with one another, and how far they will progress in the World Cup next week.
