2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup was the eighth edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup, the quadrennial international football championship contested by 24 women's national teams representing member associations of FIFA. It took place between 7 June and 7 July 2019, with 52 matches staged in nine cities in France, which was awarded the right to host the event in March 2015, the first time the country hosted the tournament. The tournament was the first Women's World Cup to use the video assistant referee (VAR) system.

The United States entered the competition as defending champions after winning the 2015 edition in Canada and successfully defended their title with a 2–0 victory over the Netherlands in the final. In doing so, they secured their record fourth title and became the second nation, after Germany, to have successfully retained the title.

2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Group F

Group F of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup took place from 11 to 20 June 2019. The group consisted of Chile, Sweden, Thailand and the United States. The top two teams, the United States and Sweden, advanced to the round of 16.

2019 FIFA Women's World Cup squads

This is a list of squads of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, an international women's association football tournament being held in France from 7 June until 7 July 2019. Each of the 24 national teams involved in the tournament had to provide to FIFA a preliminary squad of between 23 and 50 players by 26 April 2019, which FIFA did not publish. From the preliminary squad, each team named a final squad of 23 players (three of whom must be goalkeepers) by 24 May 2019. FIFA published the 23-player final lists, with the squad numbers, on their website on 27 May 2019. Players in the final squad could be replaced by a player from the preliminary squad due to serious injury or illness up to 24 hours prior to kickoff of the team's first match.The age listed for each player is on 7 June 2019, the first day of the tournament. The numbers of caps and goals listed for each player do not include any matches played after the start of the tournament. The club listed is the club for which the player last played a competitive match prior to the tournament. A flag is included for coaches that are of a different nationality than their own national team.

Chile women's national football team

The Chile women's national football team represents Chile in international women's football. It is controlled by the ANFP, and is a member of CONMEBOL. Their next major competition will be the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, where Chile qualified for the first time ever. They have been close to qualify in 1991, 1995 and 2011 and later finally made it in 2019. Chile is, along with Brazil the only teams who never missed a Copa América Femenina. Chile's friendlies are mostly with Argentina, who is a traditional rival. The team is coached by José Letelier and is captained by Christiane Endler.

As well as many South American nations, women's football is somewhat under shadow of men's football. Chile, for qualifying to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France, marked itself as the fifth nation in the CONMEBOL to have both men's and women's teams qualify for senior FIFA tournaments.
