Day 11 of the Women’s World Cup gives us the final round of action in group play for Groups A and B where first place has been all but wrapped up but there’s still quite a bit to play for as several teams remain alive for second place along with a decent chance of advancing through third place for several teams as well.

Group B kicks off the day as China and Spain kick off simultaneously with South Africa and Germany. Germany will seek first place in the group against a South Africa team that has failed to earn a point yet; they’re guaranteed to advance, but could still fall to second place. Meanwhile Spain and China will be kicking off looking to secure second place and a guaranteed spot in the knockout rounds. Based on goal differential Spain would take second with a draw. While China needs a win to take second a draw would be enough for them to clinch a spot in the knockout rounds as well based on being one of the top four third place finishers.

In the afternoon Group A will take center stage with hosts France looking to finish strong and clinch the group with a win or a draw. Their opponents Nigeria are currently tied on points with Norway for second place but facing a 3 goal deficit in goal differential as well. A draw would be enough for the team to advance and if they are able to keep the score close even a loss could do the trick. Simultaneously Norway and South Korea will be kicking off with Norway also looking to clinch second place while South Korea just looks to save face by picking up their first points of the tournament. Unless Nigeria is able to defeat France Norway can win the group with a draw.
