Women's World Cup Round Two: Lineups, schedule, how to watch on TV and online

New, comments

All 24 teams have played one match in the Women's World Cup. Today, eight of those teams face th.e second of three opponents in the group stage. Watch all the action with us.

It is Day 5 of the Women's World Cup, and there are some fun matchups on the horizon. Today is the second match for Groups A and B.

At 1:00 p.m. PT, Germany takes on Norway. Both teams won handily in the first round. China faces the Netherlands at 3:00 p.m., with the Ivory Coast versus Thailand match kicking off shortly after at 4:00 p.m. PT. Hosts Canada wrap up the day with a match against New Zealand.

Players to Watch

Germany v. Norway: Celia Sasic scored a hattrick against Ivory Coast in just 31 minutes, a World Cup record. She is a dynamic striker who could certainly find the back of the net again today. For Norway, 19-year-old, Lyon striker Ada Stolsmo Hegerberg had one goal against Thailand, but easily could have had a hattrick of her own. She is aggressive, quick, and scored 5 goals for Norway in qualifying.

China v. Netherlands: China's Li Ying sports an awesome neon green headband and was aggressive playing up top against Canada. She's just 22 and only has 9 national team caps, but she proved she belongs. 18-year-old forward Vivianne Miedema is one of the most gifted forwards in Europe, and she's still a teenager! Some have called her the "Arjen Robben of the women's game."

Ivory Coast v. Thailand: This should be a more balanced match for Ivory Coast, which means we could see some goals from forward Josee Nahi, who has 12 goals in 18 international caps. Thailand midfielder Kanjana Sung-Ngoen had one speedy breakaway against Norway that nearly led to a goal. She's Thailand's main threat in the attack.

Canada v. New Zealand: Canada is going to need a stronger performance from both Christine Sinclair and 26-year-old midfielder Sophie Schmidt. Both struggled to create shots against China. New Zealand will turn to their veteran (yet young) defender Abby Erceg. The 25-year-old will need to organize the backline if they want to hold off a tough Canadian attack.
