FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019|France, Norway, Germany, England through to quarter-finals.

The Women's World Cup 2019 has reached the knockout stages, with the final 16 countries battling it out to be crowned the winners.

It's the eighth edition of the competition, most recently won by the US in Canada 2015 - their third success.

Canada will play Sweden at the Parc des Prince on Monday with the winner moving on to the quarterfinal.

Here is how the Round of 16 breaks down:

Germany vs. Nigeria, Saturday, Stade des Alpes, Grenoble

With typical efficiency Germany cruised through Group B, winning all three matches and scoring six goals in the process.

Norway vs. Australia, Saturday, Stade de Nice, Nice

Norway won two of its three group games, losing in controversial fashion to host France after a VAR-awarded penalty.

England vs. Cameroon, Sunday, Stade du Hainaut, Valenciennes

England won Group D with three consecutive wins. They defeated Scotland 2-1, Argentina 1-0 and Japan 2-0.

France vs. Brazil, Sunday, Stade Oceane, Le Havre

France won all three games and topped Group A, but had plenty of help with VAR and a couple of extremely controversial calls in their favour.

Spain vs. United States, Monday, Stade Auguste-Delaune, Reims

The United States beat up on Thailand in their opening game, running up the score and then mocking its opponents with elaborate goal celebrations, which did not come across well in the rest of the world.

Sweden vs. Canada, Monday, Parc des Princes, Paris

Canada qualified for the second round with wins against Cameroon and New Zealand. They then had a 10-game unbeaten streak snapped with a loss to the Netherlands. It’s the first time Canada has advanced at a World Cup tournament in Europe.

Italy vs. China, Tuesday, Stade de la Mosson, Montpellier

Italy has looked very good in the tournament with wins against Australia and Jamaica and did enough to win the group despite a loss to Brazil.

Netherlands vs. Japan, Tuesday, Roazhon Park, Rennes

Netherlands won all three group games, but you wouldn’t know it by the way they are being hammered by the press at home for not being dominant enough.
