The Women’s World Cup field of 32 is finally set. With the completion of the inter-confederation playoffs tonight, the final 3 teams were determined that will head to Australia and New Zealand this summer.
The USWNT, along with the rest of Group E, were awaiting the winner of the Portugal-Cameroon match earlier this morning, with Panama winning in stoppage time. Haiti defeated Chile yesterday, while Panama defeated Paraguay to complete the field, both making the Women’s World Cup for the first time.
