Earlier in the evening, Sweden plays Chile in Rennes.

The 13-0 scoreline was a true reflection of the match.

"Anyone who has broken a toe knows how much it hurts", said Voss-Tecklenburg, who described the 27 year-old as "irreplaceable". The 2015 Women's World Cup final between the USA and Japan became the most-watched soccer match in USA history, per US Soccer.In a more cultural show of their growing profile, Morgan scored a cover on this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, while Rapinoe, Abby Dahlkemper and Crystal Dunn were also photographed in the issue.

But regardless who starts, this will be a must watch game. "The players are obviously participating but it's just so exciting to be a part of it".

Thailand's best chance came in the 28th minute when Rattikan Thongsombut took a long-range shot to force Alyssa Naeher to make her first save, out of two throughout the game. We're also fans of football.

"I'm feeling in peak form right now", said the former Lyon player at the post-match press conference.

The storm, presently around 540 kilometres south-southwest from Mumbai can move northwards as it gradually intensifies. The entire Gujarat coastline, starting from Kutch to south Gujarat, has been put on high alert.

Instead, Ellis pivoted to the team's preparation for Thailand, an opening challenger that should, on paper, offer little resistance. We played Thailand before, so we have some experience.

Elsewhere, Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg revealed that star player Dzsenifer Marozsan may miss the rest of the World Cup after being ruled out of Wednesday's crucial Group B clash with Spain due to a broken toe.

The United States is also celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the 1999 team that memorably won the title on home soil, downing China on penalties after a scoreless draw at the Rose Bowl. "I do respect every opponent here, because sometimes it's incredibly hard to get here", commented Ellis.

Morgan said she had just spotted Nild in the hallway and introduced herself. It can be problematic to look too far ahead.

"I think this team is ready to go, I feel like we're in peak form and I feel like we're ready to find success in this tournament".
