Not only were fans treated to a host of great goals on the opening day of the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2012 in Azerbaijan, they also witnessed a new record. Korea DPR's 11-0 success against Gambia is the biggest-ever winning margin at a FIFA women's youth tournament.

On Tuesday the respective losers from the first round of fixtures will be battling to remain in the competition, while Korea DPR and Colombia can secure their early qualification for the quarter-finals with a second victory.

Match of the day
France-Korea DPR, Baku, 25 September 2012, 14:00 (local time)

The situation could hardly be more contrasting heading into Tuesday's game in Baku. Korea DPR have already entered the history books with their 11-goal haul against Gambia. France, meanwhile, are under pressure to get a result after their goalless draw with USA.

The match will be the first between the sides at this level, although they have met twice at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. The Asians triumphed 2-1 at both Russia 2006 and Chile 2008, while France ran out comprehensive 5-0 winners at the Women's Olympic Football Tournament 2012 in London. Victory for the Koreans this time round would see them safely through into the last eight, so the stage is set for what should be an enthralling fixture.

Other highlights
In Group B's other match, USA take on Gambia eager to improve their chances of progression ahead of their final group game against Korea DPR. Although this will be the first clash between two nations in women's football, the statistics certainly favour the North Americans, who have won seven of their nine previous matches against African opposition in FIFA competitions.

In Group A, hosts Azerbaijan are aiming to put their disappointing 4-0 opening defeat against Colombia behind them but face another stiff test in the form of Nigeria.

The other later kick-off pits Colombia against Canada, with Las Cafeteras full of confidence after their opening win against Azerbaijan. Nonetheless, their only previous fixture against Canada finished 1-1 in 2008.

Player to watch
Not only do they have the same name, but also the same hunger for goals. Ri Kyong-Yang and Ri Un-Sim have struck six goals between them so far for Korea DPR at Azerbaijan 2012. Ri Un-Sim netted a first-half hat-trick against Gambia, while her team-mate scored three of her own in the same game. Les Bleuettes' defenders have been warned.

The stat
15 - Gambia are the youngest team at Azerbaijan 2012 with an average age of just 15. Tuesday's opponents USA are the oldest in the competition, averaging 17 years and five months.

The words
"We saw that Canada play direct football with a lot of long balls, so it's important that we keep possession against them. If we can do that, we should be impose our own game," Colombia goalscorer and captain Dayana Castillo.
