It’s a full slate of games today as Zambia, Japan, England, Haiti, Denmark, China, Sweden, and South Africa are all in action for the first time at the Women’s World Cup.

For English-speaking audiences, it’s the Three Lions who will take center stage. The reigning European champions will get their first chance to stake their claim to the world title against Brisbane. Also from Europe in today’s slate is Denmark, group stage opponents of Germany at last summer’s EURO (the Germans won that game 4-0).

Meanwhile, Japan (2011 champions — also 2015 finalists) and China (1999 finalists) represent Asia, and Zambia and South Africa represent Africa.
