England are through to the last 16 of the Women’s World Cup after breathing life into their tournament challenge with a mighty 6-1 win over China. The Lionesses had little success in their first two games but were under goals again last time out and are looking to build on their success at Euro 2022 by going in depth here.
The manner of their last victory raised hopes once again. Sarina Wiegman is very experienced in this environment and there is little reason why England, at their best, can’t make a big showing to win the tournament outright, especially as the draw was made following a series of shocks including yesterday’s elimination of the USA by Sweden, apparently pending.
Nigeria cannot be written off, of course, but they face the daunting task of defeating a strong English side. Follow England vs Nigeria LIVE standard sports dedicated game blog and Simon Collings will provide expert analysis on the spot!
England team news
Keira Walsh could start for England today.
The midfielder traveled to Brisbane with the team despite picking up a knee injury in the second group game against Denmark that apparently ruled her out of the tournament.
There were fears Walsh would be out for a long time but the Barcelona star could make a quick return as England look to advance to the last eight.
Sarina Wiegman could also stick with the system that saw the Lionesses score six goals against China to get their tournament going.
This led to her forming a three-man formation in defence, allowing Lauren James and Lauren Hemp to join forces with Alessia Russo in attack.
