Brazil and Canada are out of Women's World Cup 2023.

The United States hardly looks as dominant as it has shown in winning the last two titles in a row.

Morocco pulled off an incredible upset over Colombia to advance to the tournament for the first time in the world.

The knockout round begins on Saturday when Norway take on Japan in New Zealand's capital, Wellington.

Japan looked extremely strong in their three-game sweep of Group C. Now they will face Norway.

She was listed in the starting lineup ahead of Norway's game against Switzerland at the Women's World Cup.

Norway coach Hege Riise did not confirm Hegerberg's playing status against Japan.

Japan was successful in group play with 11 goals in their three matches.
