The 2019 Women’s World Cup opens up at Parc des Princes as hosts France take on South Korea. There’s a lot of pressure on Les Bleues to perform and to not, you know, go full France in this tournament. There’s also some expectation that France will be able to build on previous successes in Canada and Germany in terms of viewership. One way or another, though, you will be entertained.
