Additional Comments:

  • Paraguay will be the fifth South American country in its history, alongside Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Chile, to face the US as women’s football continues to grow worldwide.

  • With the expansion of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 to 32 countries, Paraguay will try to get one of three automatic starting places via the Copa America Femenina 2023 or one of two starting places for the playoff tournament with 10 teams, which produces the last three teams for the World Cup tournament.

  • The US have played against Korea Republic 13 times and have a 10-0-3 all-time record in the series.

  • The last meetings with South Korea took place in the last games of the former head coach Jill Ellis and after the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019. The US drew 2-0 in Charlotte, NC and 1-1 in Chicago in October 2019.

  • South Korea has qualified for the last two Women’s World Championships from Asia and would like to secure a place in Australia / New Zealand via the AFC Asian Women’s Cup in 2022.

  • Together with hosts Australia, Asia will receive five starting places for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Asia will also get two spots in the 10-team playoff tournament, which will produce the final three teams for the World Cup tournament.
