Group B leaders Germany are also perfect following 1-0 wins over China and Spain, and they'll take on South Africa at the Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier as the two teams meet for the first time.
Spain suffered a narrow defeat to Die Nationalelf last time out but take on China knowing a draw or better will be enough to see them finish second in Group B.

France have fulfilled expectations so far with home advantage at this World Cup, and Eugenie Le Sommer scored for the third match running to lift them to a vital 2-1 win over Norway on Wednesday.
Nigeria beat South Korea 2-0 to seal just a fourth World Cup victory in their eighth finals appearance, putting Les Bleues within reach of a priority place in the next round:
The Super Falcons haven't won back-to-back games in 90 minutes since November, and their 3-0 defeat to Norway on Matchday 1 suggests they'll buckle under pressure against top-level opponents.
The hosts are technically still yet to let their opponents score at the World Cup; France's Wendie Renard was responsible for a Norway equaliser in their most recent match, via Match of the Day:
Germany remain on course to top Group B despite failing to excite much in their back-to-back 1-0 victories over China and Spain.
Sara Dabritz scored their only goal against Spain to give them a distinct lead in the pool, and the Germany midfielder told reporters the triumph was down to perseverance:
"It was a question of will-power. Everybody gave 100%, right from the beginning. We know there is still a lot of room for improvement. The Spanish players were very good with the ball. We won the match and that's what matters. We have six points after two matches and that was our goal. Now we can show in the third match how well we play football."
Many would agree the two-time Women's World Cup champions are still on the road to recapturing their best form. BeIN Sports pundits and former pros Michelle Heyman and Lianne Sanderson said Spain should have taken something from the match:

"Spain will be kicking themselves tonight" That's the verdict of former #Matildas striker @Mheyman23 and @juventusfcwomen forward @liannesanderson on what was a frustrating night for the Spanish side following a 1-0 defeat to Germany. #beINWWC #beINSPIRED19 #FIFAWWC #GERESP https://t.co/S3XJbyPNw2
South Africa haven't shown a lot of promise in France and could be the opponents that allow Germany to finally show some expression in their play.
Spain are level on points with China but have a crucial advantage in goal difference, meaning La Roja would advance if the two teams ended on level terms.
