  1. Goodbye

    What a great start to the tournament. I cannot wait. Follow our developing report for all reaction to the draw.

    Only 181 days to go. A la prochaine.

  2. France 'never seem to deliver'

    Rachel Brown-Finnis

    Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Two

    The hosts will be desperate to do something special, they never seem to deliver. France domestically win everything with Lyon in the Champions League and have really good quality players. As a host nation what that could do for them could be unbelievable.

  3. Brown-Finnis backing England to win

    Scotland defender Jenny Beattie on BBC Two: "One of Shelley Kerr's best attributes is to get information on other teams, she will put us in a great position."

    Former England goalkeeper Rachel Brown-Finnis: "I'm backing England to win."

  4. The biggest World Cup yet?

    It seems to be a phrase used every time there is a Women's World Cup, which shows the continued growth of the game, but this could be the biggest one yet.

    France is a hotbed of women's football, easily accessible for the rest of Europe (as it stands for England and Scotland), and for the nine European countries competing, the games will be on at prime time, with the tournament broadcast live across the BBC.

    Does that point to another European success? The United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and Brazil might have something to say about that.

    But with England facing Scotland in their opening game, the start couldn't get much bigger on these shores.

  5. 'Very different from the previous manager'

    Karen Carney

    England women's winger on BBC Radio 5 live

    Under Mark Sampson we were 'first balls, second balls'. It was very successful, he got us to two semi-finals.

    But Phil Neville has come in and said he wants to play football. He wants us to play with pace, one and two touch – wants to play pure football. It’s very different. He speaks to his players all the time. It’s very different from the previous manager. I’m sure we’ll find out how good it is during the World Cup.

  6. Where are the games being played?

    We've already mentioned that the opening game of the Women's World Cup is at the Parc des Princes in Paris, with the semi-finals and final at Parc Olympiques Lyonnais in Lyon.

    Other games take place in Nice, Montpellier, Rennes, Le Havre, Valenciennes, Reims and Grenoble.

    So it's a bit of a north south-east split.

  7. 'Shelley Kerr will be excited'

    Jen Beattie

    Manchester City and Scotland defender on BBC Two

    I think Shelley Kerr (Scotland manager) will be excited. It adds to the excitement even more now that we know who is in our group, as if it could get anymore exciting!

  8. England and Scotland Group D fixtures

    • June 9: England v Scotland
    • June 14: England v Argentina and Japan v Scotland
    • 19 June: Scotland v Argentina and Japan v England
  9. England in Scotland in Nice. Nice.

    Wow. So England will face Scotland in their opening Group D game. They also have Japan and Argentina in their group.

    England beat Scotland 6-0 in their opening game of Euro 2017, but former England Rachel Brown-Finnis says that is "irrelevant."

    That huge fixture will take place on 9 June in Nice.
