This morning at 11:45 am EST, the U.S. women's soccer team will play North Korea for their first game of the Women's World Cup, in Dresden, Germany. This will be the second consecutive Women's World Cup in which the U.S. has opened against North Korea. The U.S. team has won eight tournaments under their current coach, Pia Sundhage, and is said to have a great shot at winning the World Cup. The BBC's Nigel Adderley is a sports reporter in Dresden for the match. He speaks with us from there.
