The 2011 Women’s World Cup from Germany begins today with Nigeria kicking off against France and host Germany facing Canada. The USA plays Tuesday against North Korea. They haven’t won since 1999. Germany is the defending champion and are co-favorites alongside the USA and Brazil this year. Here are my picks for the two matches today.
The Full Women’s World Cup Group Stage schedule is here. The tournament will be shown on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3.com. The Women’s World Cup is from June 26th to July 17th.
