2023 WWC : Nigeria crash out after losing 4-2 to England on penalties

England scraped into the quarter-finals of the Women’s World Cup when they beat Nigeria 4-2 on penalties in Brisbane on Monday.

Despite Nigeria having the better of the chances throughout, the European Champions reduced to 10 players after 87 minutes snuck home in front of 50,000 spectators after the match had finished 0-0 at the end of extra time England held on after playmaker Lauren James received a red card for a needless stamp and will know they have to improve if they want to add the World Cup to their European crown.

They will face Colombia or Jamaica on Saturday for a place in the semi-finals.
