After a thrilling tournament marked by record viewing figures, the women's football world cup reaches its climax on Sunday - when England take on Spain in the final. Here's how to watch if you are in France.


It's already been a remarkable World Cup - France might have been knocked out but their penalty shoot-out with Australia was the longest ever recorded in a women's tournament - and the best is yet to come.

The final is on Sunday, August 20th, at 12 noon French time.

The good news is that all matches of the tournament have been screened on free-to-air terrestrial TV in France, and the final is no exception.

It will be on TV channel France 2.

The time difference of the tournament - hosted by Australia and New Zealand - has meant that ‘fan zones’ have not been erected.

However you should be able to find sports bars or cafés who are showing Sunday's game (although not as many as there would have been had Les bleues made it to the final).
