  1. Post update

    China v Spain (17:00 BST)


    It is a hop skip and a jump for Spain fans to come to France for this game but the China supporters have had to make quite the journey and fair play to them. They have turned out in numbers and in all sorts of colourful costumes.

    Incidentally, Spain were beaten by an Asian team on this day back in 2015, losing 2-1 to South Korea. Could history repeat...?

  2. Warming up for Argentina

    Scotland v Argentina (Wed, 20:00 BST)


    Scotland are back in action on Wednesday when they face Argentina (20:00 BST) - a must-win game if they are to avoid an early exit from France.

    A victory should be enough for Shelley Kerr's tournament debutants to clinch one of the best third-placed spots, That means they have a vested interest in this game because they could face one of the two sides in the last 16 if they do finish third.

    Judging by these shots, the Scots are in pretty relaxed mood ahead of the game at the Parc des Princes, Paris.

  3. Double delight

    You've got two games for the price of one this afternoon as Germany face South Africa in the other Group B game.

    My colleague Emlyn Begley is all over that one and you can watch/follow the action from that game here.

  6. Who needs what?


    Here's how it looks in Group B.

    Spain will be assured of second spot in the group if they draw with China, who themselves know a draw would guarantee them one of the best third-place spots.

    Either of the teams could yet win the group if Germany fall to a surprise loss to bottom-side South Africa.

  7. All to play for

    One week down, three more to go.

    It's full steam ahead in the Women's World Cup and with two rounds of fixtures behind us we're at the business end of the group stage.

    Our focus today is on Group B. Germany are already through to the last 16 and, unless South Africa can pull off a big surprise, more than likely have top spot in the bag.

    However, for Spain and China it is very much all to play for...
