The Women’s FIFA World Cup Qualifiers kick off this week and you can now see most of the action for the first time on Paramount + 15 matches will be available from September 16th. Fans can watch select European teams vie for a spot in the 2023 Women’s FIFA World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

In 15 UEFA matches, there will be six matches against the England women’s national team and four matches against the German women’s national team. A total of 11 UEFA federations will qualify for the 2023 World Cup, qualifying until September 2022, with the final matches taking place in October 2022.

The 2019 Women’s FIFA World Cup was dominated by national teams from UEFA, with representatives from Europe making up seven of the eight quarterfinalists, including England and Germany. Of course, the eighth team, the US women’s team, ultimately won the tournament.

So, now that you know you have access to matches, here are the best ones to watch this week.

Games to watch this week at Paramount +

16 of September

  • Denmark v. Malta: In Denmark, one of the top scorers in the game is Chelsea’s Pernille Harder. Veteran Nadi Nadim’s recent cruciate ligament injury means the team will be left without the most experienced player, but head coach Lars Sondergaard has called in Olivia Moller Holdt to replace her.
  • Norway vs. Armenia: Norway qualifies after three consecutive defeats in friendly matches against Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands. The team has talented figures including FC Barcelona players Caroline Graham Hensen and Ingrid Engen. Chelsea’s Guro Reiten is another option for the team in midfield.

September 17

  • England v North Macedonia: England are heading to qualifiers for UEFA after several of their players competed at the Tokyo Summer Games with Team Great Britain and were eliminated in the quarterfinals. The 25-player roster, named after the current UEFA qualifiers, will mark the first for new head coach and former Netherlands coach Sarina Wigman. The roster has a mix of experience and youth, including the outstanding NWSL players Rachel Daley and Ebony Salmon.

September 18

  • Germany vs. Bulgaria: Germany will enter the UEFA qualifiers after a couple of friendly June matches in which the team lost to France and lost to Chile and lost to Chile in a draw. The team was eliminated in the 2019 World Cup quarter-finals and missed out on the opportunity to compete in the Summer Games in Tokyo due to UEFA’s Olympic qualifying rules. The squad has a wide range of top talent, including Olympique Lyon and OL Reign midfielder Zenifer Marozhan and Bayern Munich forward Leah Schuller.
