Matchday 11 continues with groups A and B and it is a jam packed schedule with four games taking place today.

China, Spain, Germany, South Africa, France, Norway, Nigeria, and South Korea will all be playing today, with four matches taking place over two time slots. Here are some things to watch out for and help you make a decision on which games to keep an eye on.

First two matches of the day will feature a pair of group B games in China vs Spain and South Africa vs Germany. Group B still has teams vying for position in the group, with Germany on top with 6 points. Germany enters the day as favorites against South Africa, which makes China vs Spain the game to watch as both teams are sitting on 3 points a piece in the group. China’s speed against Spain’s tactics could provide for some interesting soccer, possession vs pace should be on display as this match will likely determine position into the round of 16.

Second two matches of the day have Nigeria taking on World Cup hosts France, and South Korea faces off against Norway. France is sitting on top of group A with 6 points and a place in the round of 16 after wins over South Korea and Norway, while Nigeria and Norway both have 3 points a piece and are looking to improve their chances to advance out of the group.

Norway recently lost forward Emilie Haavi to an ACL injury during training this week and will have to adjust against South Korea. The Norwegians will push for result against South Korea to position themselves into the round of 16, while Nigeria will make an effort to do the same against France.

Nigeria will be facing their toughest opponent to date as they take on France, but with Asisat Oshoala making her mark this World Cup with her first goal against South Korea, they’re playing for advancement position and to show their top line can compete with the best.
