Round three of the Women's World Cup on Thursday decides who will be in the semifinals in Belfast.

The three pool winners and the best loser will make up the four semifinalists.

The pool winners are not decided.

The teams have played two matches and that means that the maximum of points they could have is 10.

In Pool A, New Zealand has 10, Canada 9
In Pool B, England and the USA each have 10.
In Pool C, France has 10 points, Ireland eight.

Of the remaining six teams, only Australia has a point. None of them will make the fourth spot in the semifinals but all three of the matches between New Zealand and Canada, England and the USA, France and Ireland are crucial.

There are nine referees at the Women's World Cup and each will have refereed two matches by the end of the 18 pool matches. Then there are the last three matches in Belfast where merit will out.
