THE Women’s World Cup in Sydney opens tomorrow (Thursday) with six teams, including England, aiming to make it through the final, which will be played at the Brisbane Stadium on Saturday 2 December as part of a double-header with the Men’s competition.
The sides have been split into two groups, with the Group A table-toppers meeting the Group B runners-up, and the Group B winners meeting the team finishing second in Group A, in the semi-finals.
Each team will face the other two sides in its own section once, with a further cross-Group fixture giving each country three league games.
