The scheduling for this World Cup continues to be a little... odd. Today we get kick-off of the final round of group stage action, with two simultaneous matches in group A to determine who will qualify out of the group... but they’re playing before the Group H games that are still part of round 2. Bizarre.

Anyway, those Group A matches are going to be fun because nobody is eliminated and it could come down to goal differential. But co-hosts New Zealand probably need a win over Switzerland to get out of their group.

Congratulations to Tottenham Hotspur Women players Becky Spencer and Drew Spence, who both started and participated in Jamaica’s first ever World Cup win! Also France edged out Brazil in a super fun match.

Here are your recaps and schedule for today’s action.
