4 – Women’s Soccer World Cup Final

Monday, 8 July – 1:00am

Despite Australia suffering a heartbreaking loss in the first round of knockouts there is still plenty of amazing talent left in the women’s soccer world cup. A must-see game will be the Final with either England or USA facing off against Netherlands or Sweden.
