Competing at their first-ever major tournament, the Republic of Ireland will have to cause a major shock if they hope to make it beyond the group stages in Australia and New Zealand. The Girls in Green took some confidence from their narrow loss to the Matildas but now face a side ranked seventh in the world. 

Canada, the reigning Olympic champions, were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw in their opening game against Nigeria as captain Christine Sinclair saw her penalty saved. The 40-year-old is bidding to make history at this tournament as she looks to become the first player to score at six World Cups. 

Sinclair has scored 190 goals for her country and will be determined to add to that tally as Canada look to get their campaign back on track. However, the Irish showed against Australia that they have plenty of talent and will be hoping that influential midfielder Katie McCabe can create more opportunities for forwards Kyra Carusa and the experienced Sinead Farrelly.
