Several teams face "must not lose" games today, while two of the best playmakers in the women's game will share the same field in the day's premier pairing.

We start today's quartet of games in New Brunswick, where France - after a curiously muted 1-0 win over England in their debut - will face Colombia, who are the least experienced team in the group. Las Cafeteras snagged a point with a late goal against Mexico, but they'll be huge underdogs here even if France stays in second gear again.

The best match of the day is at 4pm, when Marta and Brazil take on Vero Boquete and Spain. Brazil will surely have noticed the vulnerability of the Spanish defense on long balls, but this game will probably feature more possession soccer from both sides than most WWC games. Spain really needs to produce a result after being held to a disappointing draw against Costa Rica in their first match.

At the same time in Moncton, England will take on Mexico. The Three Lionesses seemed completely comfortable to blandly lose that aforementioned game against France, and will now need to kick into a higher gear if they want to avoid a surprising early exit. Mexico, meanwhile, got their only goal against Colombia on a quasi-Olympico from Veronica Perez of the Washington Spirit. This might quietly be a very fun game, as neither side can afford a loss.

Finally, South Korea and Costa Rica may face similar circumstances in the day's final game. The Costa Ricans are likely feeling pretty good about their draw against Spain, and in Shirley Cruz have a potential game-changer in their midfield. The Koreans need to find a way to three points after losing to Brazil in their opener, and will look to Ji So-yun for inspiration.

What are you drinking?: Late night last night, so at least during the first game it'll be coffee (some recently roasted Mocha Java, to be overly specific). As the day wears on, though, that might become a Tanqueray and tonic.

This is the place to be for any pre-game, in-game and post-game commentary and conversation.
