Australia were among the top seeds, but Alen Stajcic's side must face Brazil and Italy as well as Jamaica in Group C.

Banyana will come up against World number 2 ranked Germany, Spain and China in their group, which is arguably the "group of death".

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola Women's World Ranking will be made public in March 29, 2019.

France, as host country, is automatically placed into position A1 in Pot 1, and no group is allowed to contain more than one team from each confederation.
