Football Predictions

England and Nigeria will meet in the last 16 of the FIFA Womens World Cup at Lang Park in Brisbane, Australia on Monday.

Following a dominant 6-1 victory against China, which allowed them to finish at the top of Group D with a perfect record, European champions England are now set to face a rising African team. The Lionesses are determined to advance to the quarterfinals for the fifth consecutive Women’s World Cup.

Nigeria managed to secure a spot in the Round of 16 in the WWC knockout stage. In a closely contested match witnessed by over 24,000 spectators, the Super Falcons earned a crucial draw against Ireland, which was enough for Randy Waldrum’s team to finish second in Group B, surpassing Olympic champions Canada.

Team News

England coach Wiegman adopted a new approach against China and it appeared to bring out the best of the attack. With the stakes so high, it would hardly be a surprise to see her revert to type. Lauren James will continue and Keira Walsh has been spotted training on her own in a major boost, while Katie Zelem will likely start.

Nigeria, for their part, have been one of the revelations of the tournament and showed their grit and quality to qualify in a group also containing Olympic champions Canada. The 11-time African champions will once again enter the game as heavy underdogs and will relish this status, as it played to their advantage in the group stage. Manager Randy Waldrum has several match-winners at his disposal, including Barcelona forward Asisat Oshoala.

Probable Line Ups

England XI: Earps, Bronze, Greenwood, Bright, Carter, Stanway, Zelem, James, Hemp, Russo, Daly.

Nigeria XI: Nnadozie; Alozie, Ohale, Demehin, Plumptre; Ucheibe, Abiodun; Ajibade, Payne, Oshoala; Onumonu

Verdict

England might have struggled in their first two games of the competition but they grew much stronger in their last outing. They seem to be getting their rhythm at the right time and face Nigeria who have had struggles of their own in the tournament.
