Luke Edwards’ half-time verdict

England completed the primary half a hell of loads higher than they began it. They most likely ought to have had a penalty too given there was not a transparent and apparent error by the referee on the sector when Daly was barged within the again with pressure. Georgia Stanway and Keira Walsh have began to seek out little pockets of area and Nigeria haven’t been in a position to sustain the identical frenetic tempo they began the match in.

However it is a actually stiff take a look at for Sarina Wiegman’s facet who want extra from centre-forward Alessia Russo. Lauren Hemp has been the higher of the 2 strikers however England’s worry of Nigeria’s tempo on the counter means wing backs Rachel Daly and Lucy Bronze are cautious of venturing too far ahead. That’s forcing the Lionesses to attempt to play by the center too typically. Huge half time group speak for Wiegman and her teaching workers.

Luke Edwards on the ‘penalty’

That could be a penalty all day lengthy… It’s an totally ridiculous choice from the Var officers to get the referee to overturn her choice. It’s also the most recent in a protracted checklist of extremely doubtful Var interventions towards England at this World Cup. That was not a transparent and apparent error from the referee.

Good morning and welcome to stay protection of the Spherical of 16 match from the Ladies’s World Cup between England and Nigeria, which begins with the information that Keira Walsh, who missed the thumping victory over China with a knee ligament damage, is match and has been recalled to the beginning XI by Sarina Wiegman, changing Katie Zelem in the one change.

It’s encouraging to see that the coach has caught together with her new formation, 3-5-2, proving that the perfect pure coaches of the Dutch faculty, or Cruyffian disciples – Van Gaal (although he and Cruyff fell out), Guardiola and so on – can twist the template of 4-3-3 as and when circumstances demand.

A lot of the build-up has had echoes of the boys’s 1990 World Cup quarter-final towards Cameroon and the teachings of pre-match complacency learnt on that day.

“I’ve to provide credit score to the gamers. It’s one thing that’s inside them. It’s inside their DNA to compete,” he stated. “Overcoming obstacles is what they’ve executed for his or her careers.  It’s a problem – we all know what the highest groups on the earth have, and we’re aspiring to have those self same issues. However within the second, we’re the place we’re.
