England Women/England Women

Reason for tip

England have led at half-time in each of their three games at this tournament, scoring within six minutes in the last two games. Nigeria led for just 37 minutes across 248 minutes in the group stage, while England led for all but 39 minutes across their three games, so back them to lead at the end of each half.

England Women 2-0

Reason for tip

England have conceded just once at this tournament and that was from the penalty spot. Meanwhile, Nigeria have failed to score in two of their three tournament games and this England side can kick on going forward after hitting six in their new system in their last match.

Lauren James To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Lauren James has proved to be a real difference-maker for England since coming into the side. She’s hit three goals across her last two matches and her number 10 role behind two strikers allows her to get into great positions against a side who are likely to look to stifle the favourites.

  • Nigeria have failed to score in two of their last three games

Statement win for England

Sarina Wiegman made some tactical tweaks ahead of the clash with China and it paid off, with England running out 6-1 winners to wrap up Group D. Finishing top has granted them a good run of games to the semi-finals, starting with Monday’s clash against Nigeria.

While Nigeria are yet to taste defeat at this tournament, their 0-0 draws with Canada and the Republic of Ireland shouldn’t worry this England side too much. The European champions appear to have hit form at the right time, just as they did with their successful Euro 2022 run last year.

A big boost for England at this tournament has been Lauren James. She’s scored three times across their last two matches and her role just behind the forwards makes her exactly the kind of player who can unlock a Nigeria side who will likely set up to frustrate. Given that, James is an excellent option to score anytime in Brisbane.

Lionesses to make another fast start

A hallmark of England’s tournament so far has been quick starts. They’ve scored first in all three games, finding the net within six minutes in each of their last two. With Nigeria yet to score the opener at the World Cup – including failing to score twice – the Lionesses have the chance to take charge early.

This England side are among the strongest left at the tournament and they can dispatch a Nigeria side who led for just 37 of their 248 group stage minutes. By comparison, England were ahead for all bar 39 minutes across three games, so back them to lead at the end of each half in this last 16 clash.
