FIFAWWC Matchday One Recap

As the FIFA Women's World Cup continues, every team has now made their first appearance at the tournament. Catch up on how every group is unfolding as the dust starts to settle.

Catch up on our recaps of the tournament so far:

Group A

Switzerland and New Zealand banked wins early on to put themselves in the box seat. Early wins will be important in what was expected to be a very even group.

New Zealand's win, with Hannah Wilkinson netting the first goal of the tournament, was the perfect way to open up the tournament. Now the country is fully behind the Football Ferns who will be looking to make history by progressing to the knockouts.

Leading goalscorer: 1 - Ramona Bachmann (SUI), Seraina Piubel (SUI), Hannah Wilkinson (NZL)

Switzerland is top of the group, then New Zealand, Norway and then Philippines after Matchday One.

Group B

Australia is the only team with a goal so far. Thus, it puts the Matildas in prime position in the group. Despite the win, the group is closely poised, as Ireland, Nigeria and Canada all had flashes.

Canada is still expected to make its presence felt and will need a win against Ireland in the next match to challenge Australia. Even if Australia beat Nigeria and secure qualification, the co-hosts will be looking to secure the top of the group and set the side up for the knockout stages.

Leading goalscorer: 1 - Steph Catley (AUS)

Australia is on top of the group, then Canada and Nigeria are tied, and Ireland is on the bottom of the group.

Group C

There is a clear gap between the top two teams and the bottom two teams in this pool after just two matches, with two major results already splitting the hierarchy.

Spain and Japan both had emphatic wins but will need to keep the pressure on with two matches each left in the group - and the third match for each will be against the other. The pressure will stay on, with the potential goal difference for each team likely to play a factor in the end.

Leading goalscorer: 2 - Hinata Miyazawa (JPN)

Japan is on top of the group ahead of Spain. Then Costa Rica is third and Zambia is fourth.

Group D

England and Denmark have banked early wins in what will be a tough group, as China will look to reverse its fortunes in this "group of death". While neither side looked at their best, three points are three points, and it carries them into a good position for the later matches.

England is carrying the hopes of the nation after the team's triumph at the Euros last year, while China and Denmark are both ranked in the top 15 in the world, as both push to back up that ranking.

Leading goalscorers: 1 - Georgia Stanway (ENG), Amalie Vangsgaard (DEN)

Denmark and England are tied at the top of the group, and China and Haiti are tied at the bottom.

Group E

The USA came out firing to remind the world of its credentials, as the Netherlands side also got its campaign off to a flyer. It was a show of force from the USWNT, who are looking to win their third tournament in a row.

The Netherlands will be favourites to proceed into the knockout stages but will face a tough challenge from Vietnam and Portugal who both look to make history for their respective teams.

Leading goalscorer: 2 - Sophia Smith (USA)

USA is on top of the group, then Netherlands. Portugal is third and Vietnam is last.

Pool F

Brazil has made its presence felt with a dominant performance in the opening match, but it wasn't just the score that stood out. It was the eye-catching style of Brazil's play that sent ripples across the tournament and marked them as a genuine contender to make history and make a run at the title.

France will be the side that is most disappointed so far, after failing to get past Jamaica, and that draw could have implications if the European nation fail to make better as the tournament continues.

Leading goalscorer: 3 - Ary Borges (BRA)

Brazil are on top of the group, then France and Jamaica are tied, and Panama are at the bottom of the group.

Golden Boot

Ary Borges (3 goals) is the Golden Boot Leader after Matchday One ahead of Sophia Smith, Hitawa Miyazawa and Alexandra Popp (2 goals each).

Group G

While Sweden and Italy took very different paths to their one-goal wins, the wins count the same, and have both sitting in prime position for the rest of the group stages.

South Africa looked capable of firing a shot, challenging Sweden almost the entire match, while Argentina will be looking to lift its game heading into Matchday Two.

Leading goalscorers: 1 - Fridolina Rolfo (SWE), Amanda Ilestedt (SWE), Hilda Magaia (RSA), Cristiana Girelli (ITA)

Sweden and Italy are on top of the group, and South Africa and Argentina are at the bottom.

Pool H

Germany fired a clear warning shot for this group with its clinical performance on Matchday One, setting the tone. For debutants Morocco, it is about salvage from here as the team look to bounce back.

Colombia showed strong signs as the side outran South Korea, and played dynamic football that puts the team in good stead, while South Korea has work to do to stay in contention in this group now.

Leading goalscorer: 2 - Alexandra Popp (DEU)

Germany are on top of the group, ahead of Colombia. Korea is in third and Morocco is last.
