Women's World Cup football - a whole new ball game?

The women's World Cup football tournament takes place in Germany between 26 June and 17 July.

The BBC's Berlin correspondent Steven Evans talks to the US ambassador to Germany, Philip Murphy, about the impact of the women's game and whether it has a commercial future.

Mr Murphy - a successful businessman - is well placed to give an opinion, being the owner of the New Jersey-based professional women's team, Sky Blue FC.
