The Belgian women’s football team (FIFA 19) will play Albania (FIFA 75) in the qualifying match for the 2023 World Cup on Tuesday evening at the King Paudoin Stadium. Opportunities for World Cup participation. The cap number for Captain Tessa Wollard will be one hundred.
On Friday evening, the Flames began their qualifying campaign against Poland 1-1 in Gdansk (FIFA 29). National coach Ives Cherniels’ team was disappointed with the result as Janice Cayman and teammates expected a win over team-strong country Norway (FIFA 12) in Group F. Only team winner qualifies directly for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Playing the second playoffs.
Albania (FIFA 75) drew 1-1 with Kosovo (FIFA 115) on the first day. “It’s going to be a very different match on Tuesday,” Cherniels said after the match in Poland. “Albania have a strong whole. They fight for every ball.
Belgium never went to the Women’s Football World Cup. The Red Flames missed the 2019 World Cup in France after losing in the play-offs against Switzerland. The Flames made their debut at the 2017 European Championships in the Netherlands, and next year’s European title when they play in the UK (with a one-year delay).
At the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, 32 players from 24 countries are participating for the first time. The United States has won the last two editions.
The match against Albania is special to Tessa Wullert anyway. The icon of Belgian women’s football will play her 100th international match. He became the third player to finish the cape, after Cayman (114) and Alin Zeller (111).
The Flames captain now has 50 goals for the national team, for which he made his debut on August 20, 2011. I do not know them, we will see. Eventually we got there with ups and downs. A lot has passed. It’s a roller coaster. My introduction? At that time I was slightly unconscious (laughs) At that time I joined the red demons. I still remember my first goal. Put the keeper inside and then put it inside. “
Meanwhile, Wullert was the face of the flames for many years, but it was different in the beginning. “I don’t really know anyone and fun is always so important to me. So I was thinking: Should I stop? I don’t like it. Eventually, Alain took care of me and it went smoothly.
Flames are now called flames and have changed a lot over the years. “And my hairstyle,” laughs 28-year-old Wolard, who, according to himself, is even more angry from the moment he hears that the national team was allowed to go to the European Championships in 2016. “Things started to change around a lot of flames, then. Attention. I have a few more years, I think. The next World Cup is going to be in New Zealand and Australia, but after that it will be in Belgium. It might be a good end, then I’m 34-35. Pass and then stop it, that’s my plan. “
