"It was always an emotional game" - England defeat Scotland 2-1

But it's not just about soccer. They will face talented and motivated teams that could take the Americans out in every round.

"Discrimination towards women is certainly a topic that we need to address seriously", Infantino said. Jamaica, the first Carribean country to play in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, are making their debut in the prestigious and pinnacle women's football event.

The World Cup will be broadcast on Fox, Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2.

That's Gildshire's breakdown of the 2019 Women's World Cup. "I am convinced we can win this World Cup and with better skills than the men", Margaux Lanoukian, 17, said. The team was revived just five years ago. However, the support the men received during that grand run will buoy the women's team in France. There's been little or no compensation for players. Semifinalists in its past two major global tournaments and the SheBelieves Cup champs, England hopes to come home from the World Cup with the trophy. We want to be here for the next 27 days. Players have filed a federal lawsuit that accuses the U.S. Soccer federation of discrimination and seeks compensation that's equitable with compensation for the men's national team. We can't wait, so let the games begin!

"I think when they scored the first goal we then naturally dropped off because of the pressure of going 1-0 down, so we need to learn from that and maybe be more on the front foot if that is to happen again".

France's men's side won the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation for their second world title after they triumphed at home in 1998. The Steel Roses, as the team is known, have never won a World Cup, but they were runners-up in 1999 when the United States famously won on penalties after a scoreless draw at the Rose Bowl. Even though Jamaica is the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, you'll get a chance to see rising star Khadija "Bunny" Shaw in action.

Speaking of healthy competition, the WWC has historically been dominated by a few really, really good teams.

As ever, discussions about gender equality will never be too far away, and despite the fact that Federation Internationale de Football Association has doubled the prize money on offer since the 2015 event in Canada, it has still come in for criticism. It's the largest expression of interest in hosting the Women's World Cup in the tournament's history. The 2018 FIFA Ballon d'Or victor has stepped down from the national team because of what she says are differences in the way the federation treats the men's and women's teams.

But progress in many countries will only come with dedicated funding.

"We have to develop this system of play that is the right way to play football".

"She can play until she's 40".

"They are going to use that emotion and drive coming into our game, so we need to make sure we're fully on it and give them the respect they deserve". "It's different than you would even imagine in the USA, or Denmark, or Sweden".

The plan follows FIFA's strategy to grow the game globally, a five-pronged initiative announced late previous year. But the plan has been criticized because it's unclear how much money the organization is putting into the effort.

FIFA is prioritizing investing more cash across its 211 member federations as part of a $500 million budget for the women's soccer division, including development projects. A key component will be insuring all associations have comprehensive women's plans in place by 2022. Team Captain Steph Houghton leads her team, but she is not alone.

"I was pleased with the result".

"Obviously I'm disappointed we didn't get any points from the game, but I think from our first to second-half performance you can see the improvement in what we're capable of", she said.
