Episode 2692: WWC 2023 Preview Pod
The Women’s World Cup kicks off tomorrow with New Zealand v Norway in Auckland – followed at 11am Irish time by Australia v Ireland in Sydney.
Today we preview the tournament with Karen Duggan and Sinead O’Carroll on the line from Sydney. And we also get the Aussie view from Vince Rugari of the Sydney Morning Herald.
What’s the MD-1 vibe in Sydney? What would count as success in this tournament for Ireland? Are they convinced by Vera Pauw’s approach? Who is going to win this World Cup?
And if FIFA want women’s football to one day be the equal of the men’s game, isn’t it time they started treating it that way themselves?
