Now the Canadians are hoping to give their country — and its royal guests — something extra to celebrate on Canada Day by earning a much-needed three points against France. The match kicks off at noon.

Led by forward all-time leading scorer Christine Sinclair, Canada could put itself in a great spot to advance from Group A to the knockout stages with a victory while a win for Les Blues would all but punch their ticket through the group stages.

Later today the two-time defending tournament champion Germans take on Nigeria’s Super Eagles looking to solidify their spot atop the group.
