Their partnership alone is always worth tuning in for. While the squad as a single entity has found consistency, the individuals are yet to be as reliable as their predecessors and the test Canada will offer will be a chance for midfielders like Duda (both Francelino and Sampaio) or Bayern Munich's 23-year-old defender, Tainara, to show their quality. Double-headers are the flavour of the monthChile vs. Philippines, Colombia vs.
Threatening to show her best for Brazil, Kerolin, who moved to the North Carolina Courage for the 2022 season, is finally coming good on her promise as her growing partnership with Debinha (the second-most capped player in the current squad) continues to take shape in the NWSL, benefiting the Canarinhas.
Zambia, Jamaica vs. Paraguay, Senegal vs. Cameroon and New Zealand vs. South Korea all on the slate for two head-to-head games over the coming week as well. Although they're maybe not the matches that would have you traditionally wanting to watch, with six of the eight nations already qualified and the other two of Chile and Paraguay in the playoffs, there should be plenty of excitement around the four clashes. The lowest-ranked nation at the tournament next summer -- unless Cameroon, ranked 84th by FIFA, qualify through their playoff group -- Zambia (No. 81) delighted novice audiences with their fearless play at the Olympics last year, though they need experience against teams outside Africa as they ready themselves for their first World Cup.
A win wouldn't necessarily be building confidence, but with Spain known for struggling to put their best attacking football on display at major tournaments, it could be a road map for their trickiest World Cup group game next summer. An all-European affairElsewhere on the continent, Norway will clash with France (Friday) before taking on England (Tuesday), which will provide new manager Hege Riise some much needed answers as she attempts to rebuild the team after humiliation at the Euros. Still new to the team, Riise is not just without the best two players in the Norwegian talent pool right now -- Ada Hegerberg and Caroline Graham Hansen -- but is trying to bring in fresh talent.

For Spain, who will spar with Argentina before facing Japan, there are ample distractions off the pitch with the majority of the Barcelona and Basque contingent still missing from the squad due to the dispute with the federation and no clear end in sight. As such, the squad Jorge Vilda has called in has a distinctly young feel to it, with 13 of the 23 born in the 2000s. The coach and his charges would have taken great heart from beating the USA last time out, but Japan will be a different problem for them.
The key for manager Bev Priestman will be how flexible she makes her midfield, with her Brazil team expected to attack at will. The Olympic gold medal-winning coach will need to find a way of keeping the team strong while allowing a player like Jessie Fleming, who is in plumb form for Chelsea, to contribute to the attack in transition. As for that attacking Brazil team? Coach Pia Sundhage has finally found some consistency in their results since the retirement of Formiga (aged 43) and Marta's ACL tear earlier this year. The Swedish coach has discovered the right blend of older and younger players, of defence and attack, and of those who play in the Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol Feminino with those who play outside of Brazil.
Having beaten the U. last month, the Lionesses will feel good about claiming two wins from two, but trying to maintain their course from their Euros win into the World Cup will be a tricky task for Sarina Wiegman. Still without captain Leah Williamson, the Lionesses are trying to navigate new terrain without Ellen White and Jill Scott following their retirements. Although this opens up chances for peripheral and bench players, we know that once Wiegman picks her favoured 11, it's hard for others to stake their claim.

Not quite the team they were since winning the 2011 World Cup, the departure of coach Asako Takakura after five fruitless years has given Nadeshiko the chance to hit reset once more. However, they've yet to look like the real deal under Ikeda. With the coach trying to integrate younger players like striker Riko Ueki, midfielders Nanami Kitamura and Hinata Miyazawa into the fold while experimenting with different formations, there is a lack of a clear overarching picture. With time ticking down to the World Cup, the question isn't so much whether Japan will be ready in time, but rather if Ikeda knows what he wants from this team. Facing two teams who like to keep the ball as much as they do, there is no better time to see if the coach has answers to the bigger questions around their playing style.

Norway may well come away with two losses from their two matches, but the important thing for Riise will be the performances. Opting for just the one match this window, against Norway, France are still looking for answers in attack since the loss of Marie Antoinette-Katoto to an ACL injury during the Euros. It's a similar problem to Katoto's club team, PSG, and just like the French giants, there may well be no easy answer for manager Corinne Diacre. On an unprecedented unbeaten run, European champions England will be sparring with Japan on Friday and Norway on Tuesday.
Haiti, the team from South America will be favourites regardless of who they clash with in the playoff Group B final, but staying fresh and making sure everyone understands their roles on the pitch will be paramount for José Letelier. With Paraguay (No. 51) also in playoff action at the start of next year (in Group C), Las Guaraníes will have to overcome Chinese Taipei (No. 40) to make it to the final of the group, against the winner of Papua New Guinea (No. 50) vs. Panama (No. 57). With this challenge ahead, the Reggae Girlz -- led by charismatic striker, Khadija "Bunny" Shaw -- ought to give Paraguay more than a good run for their money and could provide an early look into how the South American team will fare in their playoff group. In the third playoff group, Portugal (No.
