It’s Germany gameday at the FIFA 2023 Women’s World Cup!

VfL Wolfsburg striker and national team hero Alexandra Popp scored two fantastic goals to help open the floodgates in Germany’s 6-0 win over Morocco last Monday. Check out our recap from last week if you haven’t! Today, the top two sides in Group H meet as Germany take on Colombia in what should be another thrilling encounter.

It will be the final match of the day, as Group A start us out by concluding their group stage matches of the tournament. It’s a tight group thus far. Switzerland sit atop following a 0-0 draw with Norway. Norway have had a bitterly disappointing tournament so far and remain last in the group.

The Philippines, meanwhile, notched a 1-0 win over co-hosts New Zealand in their second matchday. Sarina Bolden’s 24th-minute strike made the difference there. Could the Philippines, playing in their first World Cup on either the men’s or women’s side of the game, soar into the knockouts?
