Players and staff celebrate winning bronze at Canada 2015

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup will be held in 10 different stadiums across nine different cities in France.

Banyana Banyana have been drawn against the likes of Germany and Spain in Group B for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.

It's a fine looking group we've got.

Scotland secured their place at the tournament in France with a 2-1 victory over Albania in September to top their qualifying group.

The Ferns will fancy their chances against Cameroon, who they beat at the 2012 Olympics in their only previous meeting, but will likely need at least one point from their first two matches to advance.

Thailand made their World Cup debut at the last tournament in Canada in 2015, emerging wih a 1-2 record after defeating Cote d'Ivoire in the group stage. They're playing at their second World Cup, they'll be a very competitive team. I think that's going to be a really good game to just evaluate us for the rest of the tournament.

Also, President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, said: "It is a draw that tells us that we have to do everything we can to prepare the team well for the competition".

South Africa qualified for their first tournament after reaching the final of the Africa Women's Cup of Nations, where they eventually lost to Nigeria.

Having recorded their best World Cup finish of third in 2015, Phil Neville's England may find it challenging to repeat that feat after being drawn with Scotland, Argentina and Japan, who knocked the Lionesses out at the semifinal stage in Canada, in Group D.

The two British sides will be joined in Group D by 2011 champions Japan, who defeated England in the semi-finals of the previous tournament in 2015 before losing to the US in the final.

Germany, England, Canada, Australia.

The Ferns will begin their campaign against the Netherlands on June 11 [June 12 NZ time] before facing Canada on June 15 [June 16 NZ time] and Cameroon on Jun 20 [June 21 NZ time].

Australia were among the top seeds but Alen Stajcic's side must face Brazil and Italy as well as debutants Jamaica in Group C. The Matildas will meet Italy in their opening game in Valenciennes on June 9.
