A dream start for the DFB women! The German team, which includes four Bayern players - Lina Magull, Klara Bühl, Lea Schüller and Sydney Lohmann - could not have got off to a better start at the World Cup. Bühl and Magull were in the starting XI, and Bühl scored the third goal right after the restart to help Germany to a resounding win. The Reds' Schüller came off the bench midway through the second half and also got onto the scoresheet in the 90th minute, when she netted the sixth and final goal of the match to give Germany their first win of the tournament.

After the match, the players sent a message to their teammates Caro Simon, Giulia Gwinn and Linda Dallmann, who are out of the World Cup due to injury. On Sunday, 30 July, Magull and Co. will face Colombia in Matchday 2 of the group stage.

Next up for the Swedes is an all-European Group G clash with Italy on Saturday 29 July at 09:30 CEST.

Group E: Netherlands make a successful start

The tournament also sterted well for the Netherlands. Germany's neighbours with Bayern newcomer Jill Baijings in the squad beat Portugal 1-0, with the FCB all-rounder watching the game from the bench. Next up for the Dutch is a match against reigning world champions USA, a repeat of the 2019 World Cup final on Matchday 2 of the group stage (Thursday 27 July, 15:00 CEST).

In Group D, two FC Bayern players were able to celebrate a win in their first match. Georgia Stanway was the decisive player for England in their game against World Cup newcomers Haiti. The European Champions ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Stanway, who converted a penalty for England in the 29th minute. Pernille Harder also won her opening match with Denmark. However, the encounter with China turned into a nail-biting thriller that was only decided by a 90th-minute header from substitute Amalie Vangsgaard.

Matchday 2 in Group D features a Bayern clash when England take on Denmark at 10:30 CEST on Friday 28 July.

Group A: Hosts beat Norway 

Norway, Tuva Hansen
Tuva Hansen suffered defeat with Norway in their first match.

For Tuva Hansen and the Norwegian national team, the start of the World Cup did not go according to plan, as the Scandinavians suffered a 1-0 defeat in the opening match against hosts New Zealand. Hansen played the full 90 minutes, but was unable to prevent the defeat with her team. On Matchday 2 (Tuesday, 25 July, 10:00 CEST), the Norwegians will be aiming to pick up their first points against Switzerland, who won their Group A opener against the Philippines.
