The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup continued Thursday (on FOX and the FOX Sports app), with South Korea (0-1-2) battling Germany (1-1-1) to a draw at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
Shockingly, Germany is eliminated from the tournament before the knockout stage for the first time in Women’s World Cup history.
