Women's World Cup

Germany 2:1 Canada
France 1:0 Nigeria

Group B
Japan 2:1 New Zealand
England 1:1 Mexico

Group C - USA v North Korea, Colombia v Sweden

Group D - Brazil v Australia, Norway v Equatorial Guinea

By the end of Wednesday we should have an idea who are the teams to watch in this summer's Women's World Cup.

The host nation Germany got off to a winning start against Canada, cementing their status as tournament favourites in front of 73,680 in Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

Brazil, second favourites, kick-off against Australia on Wednesday while the USA, the reigning Olympic champions, should have no trouble against North Korea.

Sweden, who play first-time qualifiers Colombia in Leverkusen, are a good bet for the last four along with France, who got off to a winning start against Nigeria.

And that leaves England, a fast-improving team who beat the US in a friendly in London this Spring. Hope Powell's side battled to a tie with Mexico in Wolfsburg today, failing to build on Fara Williams' 21st minute opener and their dominant play and allowing the Mexicans to draw level through a spectacular long-range effort from Monica Ocampo.
