Germany was drawn in a group with China, Spain, and South Africa. They’ll open the World Cup in Rennes against China. The second match sees Germany in Valanciennes against Spain. They’ll round out the group in Montpellier against South Africa.

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place across France from June 7 to July 7.
