Switzerland women’s football team will be the underdogs in the tournament, but they have a few talented players who can help their team win the match by themselves.
Switzerland is in quite trouble this year as they could not win any friendlies they played this year, but the good thing is that they lost one of the six friendly matches they played. They are the team known for their possession play as they keep 60-65% possession in most matches except when they are not up against the big four in the Women’s international teams.
They have a challenging group in which they will go up against Norway, who will challenge them, and New Zealand, who is one of the hosts of the FIFA Women’s world cup, which can help give more challenge to the Switzerland team. They have to defeat the Philippines, which is a weak team.
Thier one of the most talented players, Lia Walti will be very important for the team as a midfielder. She has quite amazing defensive skills and also ball progression play. Ana Maria Crnogorcevic is one of their attacking players who can score and assist, as she did in the last 16 matches, including friendlies in 2023. She scored 9 goals and gave 7 assists in 16 appearances for the national team.
They can’t reach further than the knockout round of 16, but it all depends on their team unity and also luck. Ramona Bachmann is another midfielder who will be crucial for the team in the World Cup.
