It's another busy day at the Women's World Cup as Groups E and F close out Round 1 of Group Play, with England taking on France at 10:00am, Spain facing Costa Rica and Colombia versus Mexico at 1:00pm, and closing out the day with Brazil squaring off with South Korea at 4:00pm.

UEFA heavyweights kick off the day, as England, currently ranked 6th in the recent FIFA Women's Rankings, is making their 4th appearance in the World Cup, making the quaterfinals in the last two editions, as well as in 1995.  France comes in as the #3 team in the world, and is making their 3rd appearance in the World Cup, and finished 4th in 2011.

Spain makes their debut in the World Cup, having qualified out of UEFA as a group winner, and are currently ranked 14th, while Costa Rica, who finished 2nd in the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championships, are also making their tournament debut and is ranked 37th.

Colombia is making their second appearance, qualifying out on CONMEBOL as the runner-up in the 2014 Copa America Femenina and are ranked 28th.  Mexico comes into their third appearance at the World Cup hoping to make their way out of the group stage for the first time.  Finishing third in the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championships, Mexico is ranked 25th.

Closing out today's play, Brazil, who appeared in each World Cup and finished as the runner-up in 2007, qualified after winning the 2014 Copa America Femenina and is ranked 8th.  South Korea makes their second appearance in the World Cup after finishing 4th in the 2014 Women's Asian Cup and is ranked 18th.
