“The 32 teams competing at the Women’s World Cup have been finalised,” FIFA announced on 11 November.

The final roster consists of 23 players.

The youngest player on the 736-player roster is South Korea’s Casey Eugene Fair (PDA), born in 2007.

Fair, who has an American father and a Korean mother, is the second mixed-race player in Korean football history to play in a World Cup, following Jang Dae-il, who was named to the final roster for the 1998 Men’s World Cup in France.

He is also the youngest player in history at 16 years and 1 month.

The oldest player is Nigeria’s Onome Ebida, who was born on 8 May 1983.

Veteran South Korean goalkeeper Kim Jung-mi (born 1984) is the fourth oldest player.

Germany, South Korea’s final opponent in the group stage, has the tallest average height (172 cm).

Brazilian women’s football legend Marta is making her sixth career World Cup appearance.

Marta, who has been playing since the 2003 tournament in the United States, has scored 17 goals in five World Cups, the most of any player, male or female.

Meanwhile, the South Korean women’s team, led by Colin Bell, will compete in Group H against Colombia, Morocco and Germany.
