DECIDING FACTORS FOR PROGRESSION
The top two teams from each group reach the knockouts. If points are level, it is decided by goal difference, then by goals scored, then by head-to-head records, head to head goals scored, and so on until coming down to fair play record (aka yellow and cards conceded).
Former champions Norway are having a disastrous start to the tournament and suddenly sit dead last in a wide-open Group A.
Switzerland will progress to the knockouts with a win or draw against NZ. They could conceivably still progress with a loss if the Philippines and Norway draw, or if Norway wins – but those of those scenarios would come down to goal difference.
New Zealand will progress with a win regardless of what happens in the Philippines/Norway game, while the Philippines will also progress with a win regardless of what happens in the NZ/Swiss game.
NZ can progress with a draw if the other match is also a draw, thanks to their better goal difference over the Philippines.
The Philippines can progress with a draw on goal difference if Switzerland beats NZ and goal difference goes their way (aka NZ concede a few!)
Norway must win and hope other results go their way – a Swiss win would do, or a draw so long as Norway score at least one more goal than NZ does.If New Zealand win, Norway can progress if they overturn a three-goal margin on goal difference.

Ireland’s debut journey at the Women’s World Cup has come to an end after a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Canada. They are now unable to make the knockouts, but the other three teams all have a chance.
For each of Canada, Nigeria and Australia, a win in their final games will ensure progression to the knockouts.
Canada can get through to the knockouts with a draw against Australia, while Nigeria can get through to the knockouts with a draw against Ireland.
But for Australia, a draw would only be enough if Ireland beat Nigeria.
If Ireland beat Nigeria by two or more goals and Australia draws, Australia will progress.
If Ireland beat Nigeria by one goal, it comes down to goals scored, meaning Australia must score more goals (than Nigeria) in its draw with Canada.

England are in the driver’s seat to secure qualification for the knockout stages thanks to back-to-back 1-0 victories over Haiti and Denmark.
The Lionesses now just need a draw at minimum in their final group game against China to progress to the Round of 16.
But the real intrigue now comes down to China and Denmark.
China face England while Denmark take on Haiti, who are yet to secure a point but have battled heroically in both of their games.
Both China and Denmark are level on three points and goal difference (0).
Although Denmark have the advantage in head-to-head thanks to a 1-0 win over China, the first port of call in separating the teams is goal difference, then it goes to most group goals scored and only then does it turn to their head-to-head record.
Group D fixtures, results, and scorers
22 July: England 1-0 Haiti (Stanway 29’ pen)
22 July: Denmark 1-0 People’s Republic of China (Vangsgaard 90+1’)

After two losses in as many games, Vietnam are unable to progress to the knockout stages.
But the battle for the top two spots is going to be a close-run thing in the final matchday.
The US and Netherlands are level on four points, with Portugal eyeing an upset on three points. For each of those teams, a win would guarantee progression.
For the US, a draw against Portugal would be enough to progress – but could cost them top spot if Netherlands beat Vietnam.
For the Dutch, a draw against Vietnam would be enough to progress regardless of the result between US-Portugal.
For Portugal, a draw could be enough – but only if Vietnam beat the Netherlands. If both matches are drawn, the US and the Netherlands finish on five points and Portugal on four, with Vietnam on one point.
Group E fixtures, results, and scorers
22 July: United States 3-0 vs Vietnam (Sophia Smith 14’, 45+7’, Lindsey Horan 77’)
23 July: Netherlands 1-0 Portugal (Stefanie van der Gragt 13’)

France and Jamaica are neck-and-neck at the top, with France only ahead currently thanks to scoring one more goal than the Reggae Girlz.
If France beat Panama – eliminated after two defeats – in the final game, they will progress. They will also progress with a draw, regardless of the other result (but would lose top spot).
Even a loss could be enough depending on the other result! If France lose to Panama and Jamaica beat Brazil, Jamaica would top the group and France would qualify second.
If France lose to Panama but Jamaica and Brazil draw, BOTH of the other teams would leap-frog France.
If France lose to Panama and Brazil beat Jamaica, Brazil would top the group and France or Jamaica would be only be split in the battle for second place by goal difference (and so on).
For Jamaica, a draw with Brazil would be enough for them to progress regardless of the other result. Even a loss offers a chance at progression – as I wrote above, if France lose to Panama and Brazil beat Jamaica, Brazil would top the group and France or Jamaica would be only be split in the battle for second place by goal difference (and so on).
For Brazil, a win guarantees progression. A draw would only be enough if Panama beat France.
Group F fixtures, results, and scorers
23 July: France 0-0 Jamaica
24 July: Brazil 4-0 Panama (Ary Borges 19’, 39’, 70’, Beatriz Zaneratto 48’)
29 July: France 2-1 Brazil (Eugenie Le Sommer 17; Wendie Renard 83’; Debinha 58’)
29 July: Panama 0-1 Jamaica (Allyson Swaby 56’)
2 Aug: Panama vs France
2 Aug: Jamaica vs Brazil
Sweden are into the knockout stages thanks to a resounding 5-0 victory over Italy in their second Group G contest.
Although Italy remain in pole position for the other knockout spot in the group, the heavy loss has given their goal difference an almighty hiding.
Italy will make it to the Round of 16 if they can beat South Africa, who sit in last place on the ladder.
They could also draw against Banyana Banyana and qualify for the knockouts, but they’d have to rely on Sweden beating or drawing with Argentina in their final group game.
Argentina can still qualify for the Round of 16 if they beat Sweden and Italy either lose or draw with South Africa due to their superior goal difference.
As for South Africa, they could also sneak into the knockouts if they beat Italy and hope Sweden beat or draw with Argentina.
Group G fixtures, results, and scorers
23 July: Sweden 2-1 South Africa (Fridolina Rolfo 63’, Amanda Ilestedt 90’; Hildah Magaia 48’)
