The incredible matches of the Women’s World Cup 2023 are behind us! The whole tournament was incredibly exciting and ended with victory for the Spanish national team. Who has demonstrated exceptional efficiency? Discover the best XI of the entire World Cup according to Flashscore data!
Considering the whole tournament Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnadozie has proven to be the best goalkeeper. Even though her team was knocked out in the Round of 16, the talented keeper earned an impressive score of 7.53. They kept a clean sheet against Canada, Ireland and England, decided on penalties after a 0-0 draw.
This year’s Women’s World Cup showed just how important defenders play on the pitch. Team captain France’s Wendie Renard (7.75) scored the decisive goal against Brazil. Amanda Ilestedt of Sweden (7.67) was the cornerstone on the road to bronze. Moreover, she scored four goals as a goalscorer, which is the second best result in the league. She also helped her team England’s Alexa Greenwood (7.84), who has conceded only four goals in seven matches, with only one in the group and the other three from the quarter-finals to the final. On the other hand Manuela Vanegas scored a 7.7 thanks to efficient play at the limit of the Colombian defense. His best moment was the winning goal in the German goal.
Success at the World Cup would not be possible without effective midfielders. The best was Teresa Abelleira (8.19), who proudly replaced superstar Alexia Putellas on the pitch. She has become a mainstay in the midfield and together with Bonmatia they have created a quality duo both at the back and up front. The winners of the last two World Cups suffered a defeat: the American team was eliminated from the tournament. Nevertheless, an individual performance Lindsey Horan (8/3) can be considered successful. We also include the best eleven of Flashscore Danielle van de Donk (7.75) and Jill Roord (7.9) from the Netherlands, who played great matches in the group stages and round of 16.
Among the best strikers in the group stage are Selma Bach (7.8) and Liekie Martens (7.7). Although the French international started the World Cup on the bench, from the second game she played consistently and was able to weaken any defense on the wing. She registered two assists and created dangerous chances. On the other hand Lieke Martens from the Netherlands broke the 7.2 Flashscore threshold in every game and even scored 9 points once. In total, she scored one goal and added two assists.
Interestingly, according to Flashscore ratings Hinata Miyazawa was not in the top eleven. This is due to the uneven results of a player who played very good games in the group stage, and then quite poor games – for example, the quarter-final against Sweden.
Players can be assigned ratings with the new Flashscore feature. Each player starts with a rating of 6. Successful actions such as assists, successful defense or scoring a goal increase the rating, while, for example, fouls or unsuccessful tackles lower the scale.
