With Germany, Norway, and the United States knocked out already, Japan are the only past winners still in the Women's World Cup 2023 and they face Sweden on Friday for a place in the semi-finals.


It was their stunning 4-0 victory over Spain in the final game of the group stages that made the rest of the tournament really sit up and take notice while they proved far too good for Norway in the Round of 16.

14 goals scored and just one conceded speaks to the form that Futoshi Ikeda's side bring into the quarter-finals as they look to recreate their 2011 success.

They'll know not to underestimate Sweden, who alongside Japan and England are one of only three teams to win every match so far in the tournament.

The Swedes required penalties, and a dramatic shoot-out at that, to knock out three-time winners United States in the Round of 16, but after that scalp they won't fear anyone.
