The second Group C match will see the might Brazil taking on FIFA Women’s World Cup debutants Jamaica.
Kick-off time from the Stade des Alpes is at 9:30 am and Fox Sports 1 USA will also have the live television broadcast. FoxSportsGo.com will stream the action online.
Brazil will enter this match against the Reggae Girlz without star playmaker Marta, who has been ruled out because of an injury.
The six-time FIFA Player of the Year will not be available to face Jamaica in the opener as she continues to recover from a left thigh injury she suffered in practice last week.
Marta returned to training this past Tuesday, but manager Vadao said Saturday that she will not play.
“She has been recovering better than expected, but she cannot start,” Vadao said at a news conference.
“Maybe she will be on the bench, but our plan is that she doesn’t take part in the game.”
Jamaica will look to star forward Khadija Shaw to lead the team’s attack.
Meanwhile, in Group D, rivals England, the third place finishers at the 2015 World Cup and Scotland, making their debut in the finals, will look to open their 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign with a win.
Match time at the Allianz Riviera in Nice, will be at 12:00 pm and live television broadcast will be on FOX Network and FoxSportsGo.com.
England enter this contest with a few injury worries, but manager Phil Neville is positive defender Demi Stokes and striker Toni Duggan will be healthy for for the match.
The last time these teams met at a major tournament, Scotland were thumped 6-0 by England in the group stages at Euro 2017.
