2019 Women's World Cup standings, full schedule, dates, start times: USWNT, France looking like the best of the bunch

The eighth installment of the FIFA Women's World Cup got underway in France earlier this month. It's the third time the tournament has made its way to Europe and the first time since Germany in 2011. The action is underway from June 7 to July 7 as 24 participating nations battle for that coveted World Cup trophy when it's all said and done. The U.S. is playing its second game of the tournament Sunday vs. Chile (full match preview here).

The United States entered the tournament as defending champions and the most decorated national team in Women's World Cup history with three titles, just ahead of Germany which has won it all twice. On Tuesday, the Americans kicked off their campaign with a bang, scoring 13 goals -- thirteen! -- on Thailand in the most lopsided win in World Cup history -- men or women.

Twenty-four teams are being split into six groups of four teams. The top two teams from each group advance to the round of 16, and the four-best third-placed teams from the group stage will also move on to the knockout stage. Below you'll find the complete group standings and schedule for the tournament.

How to stream, watch on TV

The tournament will air in the United States English on FOX and FS1, while the Spanish broadcast rights are with Telemundo, with games also airing on Universo. You can watch the tournament on fuboTV (Try for free).
