The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup continues Wednesday (on FS1 and the FOX Sports app), with Jamaica (1-1-0) taking on Brazil (1-0-1) at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium in Australia.
Brazil, which is ranked No. 8 in FIFA’s world rankings, accounts for one on the top-10 goals of the tournament thus far, but it’ll still face a tough challenge against the No. 43-ranked Reggae Girlz, which return star forward Bunny Shaw.
Both teams advance to the next round with a win and both still have a chance to win Group F outright. Find every scenario for how each team can advance out of its group and into the knockouts here.
