    Teams out of Women’s World Cup 2023: Updated list of nations eliminated from Australia and New Zealand tournament

    The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup has set a series of new benchmarks in the competition’s history including a first co-hosted edition, and a debut in Oceania, as Australia and New Zealand took over hosting duties.

    However, the most eye-catching update for the 2023 tournament is the increase from 24 to 32 national teams competing for glory in the largest bracket the competition has seen.

    The expansion to 32 teams makes the group-stage-to-knockout-stage picture more straightforward and boosts the chance of an unexpected shock, with eight sides making their World Cup debut in 2023.

    The battle for glory will be a fascinating race in the coming weeks, and with so many nations involved, The Sporting News is tracking the teams as they are eliminated throughout the tournament.

    How many teams play at the Women’s World Cup?

    The changes ahead of the 2023 tournament have brought the competition entrants up to 32 nations spread across FIFA’s continental federations.

    With more teams involved, extra games have been added to the schedule, with eight groups of four teams meaning each side will play a minimum of three group-stage games.

    The process to decide the qualifiers for the knockout Round of 16 is now simplified, with the top two teams from each group moving to the next phase, with group standings determined by overall points, goal difference and head-to-head record.

    Each game from the Round of 16 onwards is a straight knockout match, with 30 minutes of extra time added if a game is tied after 90 minutes of play, with a penalty shootout then used if the scores remain level.
