After the host country Germany won their opening match to kick off the FIFA Women's World Cup tournament, the action switches to Group B in Monday's action featuring two games that should be incredibly interesting to watch. The four teams in the group face off in their opening matches today, with Japan facing New Zealand and Mexico taking on England.
Germany has won the last two Women's World Cup Finals including the 2007 tournament in China. Other countries such as the United States, China, Norway and Brazil also have strong histories in Women's World Cup action. Group B is one of the weaker overall sections of the tournament, but these four teams hope to change that perception.
ESPN will carry both of today's games all morning long in HD with the Japan vs. New Zealand match kicking off coverage starting at 8:45 ET/7:45 CT. The coverage for the second match featuring Mexico vs. England begins at 11:45am ET/10:45 CT. Germany is six hours ahead of Eastern time, which puts the matches at 3pm and 6pm local time.
Current Odds For Group B
Japan - 5/6
England - 8/5
New Zealand - 10/1
Mexico - 10/1
