Philippines vs. Switzerland live updates: Women’s World Cup 2023 top plays

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup continues Friday (on FS1 and the FOX Sports app) with the Philippines facing Switzerland in a Group A showdown at Forsyth Barr Stadium in New Zealand.

The Philippines and its American-heavy roster is making its World Cup debut Friday and is one of eight first-time entrants in the World Cup. 

On the other side, Switzerland will make its second World Cup appearance all-time and first since 2015, when the Swiss were bounced in the Round of 16. 

La Nati will be led by captain Lia Walti and the national team’s all-time leading scorer Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic. Switzerland’s squad also features 16-year-old Iman Beney, who was picked for the World Cup only three days after making her debut with the national team. She’ll turn 17 two days after Friday’s game.

Captain Tahnai Annis is at the helm for the Philippines, which also features powerhouse defender Angela Beard — who switched allegiances from Australia to join the Filipinas — and Quinley Quezada, the team’s all-time leading scorer.
