Match 21, Norway-Ghana will be played on 20 Sept (17:00) in Hangzhou (and not on 19 Sept in Shanghai as originally scheduled)

Match 24, Brazil-Denmark will be played on 20 Sept (20:00) in Hangzhou (and not on 19 Sept as originally scheduled)

Tonight's games in Shanghai (Match 19, Nigeria-USA) and Tianjin (Match 20, Korea DPR-Sweden) will kick off at 20:00 local time as originally planned.
