Spain will, however, be the betting favourite in this group, with La Roja ranking No1 in the FIFA world rankings.

Group A3

Group A3 will be competed by title holders England, alongside France, Sweden, and the Republic of Ireland.

The Three Lionesses will of course be the bookies’ favourite to take the mantle of group leaders, having triumphed in the previous instalment of the competition in 2022.

Group A3 may well be the most hard-fought group, however, with England, France, and Sweden making up 3 of the 4 European sides in the top 5 of the FIFA World rankings!

Group A4

The final group in League A, Group A4, will consist of Germany, Austria, Iceland, and Poland.

League B

Group B1

Group B1 comprises of Switzerland, Hungary, Turkey, and Azerbaijan.

None of these nations rank in the top 20 of FIFA’s world rankings, so this group could be a real dark horse to keep an eye on! This will, however, be a race between only 3 of the 4 horses!

Portugal, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Northern Ireland, and Malta make up Group B3.

Portugal are way ahead of any of their competition in terms of FIFA rankings, sitting in 21st place – 25 places ahead of Northern Ireland, their closest ranking rivals.
