Women’s World Cup: Sweden vs. Nigeria and Cameroon vs. Ecuador TV times and open thread

BC Place

After an exciting group of games on Sunday, Monday gives us our first look into the 2015 Women’s World Cup “group of death” or group D. Group C also begins today with two countries making their World Cup debut.

Sweden v Nigeria

4PM- FOX
Group D
Winnipeg Stadium

These teams have met twice before in the World Cup, once in 2003 and again in 2007. While Sweden got the better of Nigeria in their first meeting, with a 3-0 victory, the Super Falcons were able to hold their own in a 1-1 tie in 2007.

Nigeria often struggles with breaking down a strong defensive team, and unfortunately that is exactly the challenge Sweden presents. The Swedes are tall, strong and organized across the back line, as well as the midfield. Nigeria is also a strong and athletic team that will look to throw off the Swedish offense by potentially using physical play.

Sweden will need to look sharp in their opener and not overlook this match. If they do, the Super Falcons could steal a few points.

Cameroon v Ecuador

7PM- FOX Sports 2
Group C
BC Place Stadium

Both of these teams are making their World Cup debut.

Cameroon’s best feature is a solid defense and good goalkeeping in Annette Ngo Ndom. This makes it more challenging for an already undersupplied Ecuador offense.

This is the most likely game that Ecuador will be able to steal a few points in group C. This young team may struggle with fitness late in the game. Therefore it is important that they capitalize on any opportunities they get early in the game.

    Brilliant 3rd goal by Nigeria; peach of a pass and clinical finishing. I wish they could play for Liverpool. Great match.
