It’s summertime, which means it’s time for international football. This year, the tournament on everyone’s mind will be the Women’s World Cup, being held in France across nine cities, from June 7th to July 7th. There will be 24 countries competing for the big prize, with the United States looking to defend its title.

The structure is the same as always: there are six groups of four countries. The top two from each group will automatically qualify for the knockout stage, along with the four best third-place finishers.

This thread will be for the entire tournament, where you can discuss anything related to the matches and results.

You Know the Rules:

Absolutely no illegal streams. Don’t share any illegal streams in the comments.

Be critical, but not offensive. We’re all tolerant people; we all get frustrated at a bad call the ref makes or react to some foul that the opposing team makes. We encourage you to post your thoughts, just think them through before posting them. Keep things PG-13.

No abusing of other commentators or match officials. None whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Verboten, Verboten, Verboten!! We’re all fans, bear that in mind.

Express yourself how you normally would. We allow for profanity (within reason), but any sexist, racist and/or homophobic comments and replies will result in immediate blocking and banning of future participation.
