Fear not – there is more football on! The Women’s World Cup heads to France with Phil Neville’s Lionesses hoping to improve upon their impressive third place at 2015’s tournament.

The reigning champions USA will take some beating though. They are the favourites, but England, France and Germany are all in the running, and we love a dark horse at the World Cup. Who’s your bet?

Just like the men’s tournament, every match will be shown live and free in the UK. Here’s how to tune in.
