“We’re delighted to have an invitation from @RevCupMexico. As an American, I know Mexico and Costa Rica well, and Colombia is a big rivalry. It’s an honor to play in these games.
“The way football is played around the world gives our players the opportunity to be exposed to another style of football.
“Women’s football has to continue to grow; we need to have more games like this.
“The Mexican Revelation Cup is an opportunity to observe the style of other teams. We can learn from Concacaf and South American teams.
“Fans will have the opportunity to watch national team games they are not used to and that will also help women’s football,” the coach said.
World Cup Group B includes Waldrum’s Falcons, Olympic champions Canada, World Cup hosts Australia and debutant Republic of Ireland.
This year’s competition is scheduled to take place from July 20 to August 20, 2023, and will also feature Costa Rica and Colombia.
The number of participating teams in this World Cup will be expanded from the previous 24 teams to 32. This will be the first Women’s World Cup with multiple host countries.
