The Young Tigresses make their debut on the first day of the World Cup against the top-ranked U.S.A. While India avoided facing the former winners Spain, they will still need to finish in top 2 of Group A to advance to the knockout stages.

However, it is noteworthy that no host nation has ever advanced past the group stage without losing.
