  • WSL well represented

    South Korea v Norway (20:00 BST)

    The Women’s Super League will be well represented in this match, with players fromChelseaandWest Hamboth taking to the field.

    Chelsea forwardJi So-yunis the star name on the South Korean team-sheet as the country’s all-time top scorer, and is joined by West Ham midfielderCho So-hyun.

    They’ll be trying to find a way past Chelsea duoMaren MjeldeandMaria Thorisdottirin the Norway defence.

    The Norwegians were part of a Blues side that conceded just 14 goals in last season’s WSL – a total bettered only by champions Arsenal (13).

    Rosengard forward Lisa-Marie Utland comes in for midfielder Karina Saevik, as Norway make one attack-minded change from their narrow loss to France. I expect this means Barcelona’s new signing – the superb Caroline Graham Hansen – might play wide on the right initially.

    Chelsea duo Maria Thorisdottir and Maren Mjelde both start the back again for the Norwegians, with Mjelde as captain.

    Norway XI:Hjelmseth, Wold, Thorisdottir, Mjelde, Risa, Hrlovsen, Graham Hansen, Utland, Engen, Reiten, Minde.

    South Korea,ranked two places below today’s opponents Norway at 14th in the world, were outclassed by hosts France in their opener as theylost 4-0in Paris.

    Yoon Deok-yeo‘s side were thendefeated 2-0by Nigeria, all but ending their hopes of progressing.

    The South Korea manager apologised to the nation’s fans at the stadium and watching at home, saying: “We did not meet their expectations. We have one match left here and I hope we can show everyone what we are capable of.”

    They could conceivably still progress, but even a win tonight would certainly not guarantee anything…

    South Korea v Norway (20:00 BST)

    HostsFranceare in the driving seat in Group A having sealed qualification with two successive wins, but the picture behind them is slightly more complicated.

    Norway, in second, andNigeria, in third, know they will both advance to the knockout stages, if they can avoid defeats this evening.

    Any of the top three could, in theory, end today as winners of Group A.

    Meanwhile, pointlessSouth Koreamust beat Norway to have any chance of sneaking through to the last 16 – while also hoping other results go their way.

  • Welcome

    South Korea v Norway (20:00 BST)

    Records have tumbled. We’ve had VAR drama, lightning storms and goalkeeping masterclasses. And now, we’ve reached the business end of the group stages in France.

    Already today, Germany, Spain and China have confirmed their qualification from Group B.

    So, who else can progress to the last 16 from a finely poised Group A?
