Switzerland and Norway through to the knockout rounds after Sunday night’s final group games.
* GROUP B
Australia (6), Nigeria (5), Canada (4) Ireland (1)
Australia and Nigeria progress after Monday night’s Matildas masterclass.

* GROUP D
England (6), Denmark (3), China (3), Haiti (0)
Tuesday 9pm (AEST): China v England – Adelaide, Haiti v Denmark – Perth
England are through with a draw against China, but otherwise it’s complicated. For Denmark and China, a win should do it, but it may go to a tie-breaker (goal difference, goals scored, head-to-head result, fair play) depending on the other result. Haiti need to win and hope England do as well to take it to a tie-breaker.
* GROUP E
USA (4), Netherlands (4), Portugal (3), Vietnam (0)
Tuesday 5pm (AEST) – USA v Portugal – Auckland, Netherlands v Vietnam – Dunedin
USA and the Netherlands will each progress with a win or draw. The Netherlands can even lose, so long as the USA win. Portugal progress by beating USA, or drawing if Vietnam win.
* GROUP F
France (4), Jamaica (4), Brazil (3), Panama (0)
Wednesday 8pm (AEST) – Jamaica v Brazil – Melbourne, Panama v France – Sydney
France are through with a draw against Panama, and can even lose if Jamaica beat Brazil. Jamaica are through with a draw against Brazil, while Brazil must beat Jamaica to be sure of getting through. Panama are done.
* GROUP G
Sweden (6), Italy (3), South Africa (1), Argentina (1)
Wednesday 5pm (AEST) – Argentina v Sweden – Hamilton, South Africa v Italy – Wellington
Sweden are through. If Italy win they join them, while a draw should be enough unless Argentina upset Sweden. South Africa must win and also hope that upset doesn’t happen. Argentina need to win and hope.
* GROUP H
Colombia (6), Germany (3), Morocco (3), South Korea (0)
Thursday 8pm (AEST) – South Korea v Germany – Brisbane, Colombia v Morocco – Perth
The South Americans need just a draw to top the group and could still make it with a loss. Germany’s goal difference means a win is enough to join them. Morocco and South Korea need to win and hope.
