After a two-day break in the action, the Women’s World Cup returns with teams now facing a win-or-go-home scenario.
Germany and Sweden get the round of 16 going on Saturday, with the former world champion German team living up to its favorite tag. If the Swedes are to advance, it would be their first win of the tournament so far, since all three group games ended in a tie.
Elsewhere, China faces surprise package Cameroon, who topped Switzerland last time out to advance this far.
Group B wraps up in Copa America play, though it’s anything but straightforward. Uruguay and Paraguay square off with the former needing a win to definitely advance. Paraguay tops the group alongside Argentina, who faces Jamaica in the later contest.
Finally, MLS action rounds out the night. Conference contenders New York Red Bulls host the Vancouver Whitecaps as East meets South, while the Portland Timbers and Houston Dynamo do battle in the Pacific Northwest.
