England is in the Women’s World Cup knock out stages and here’s what you need to know!

England finds themselves in a more advantageous position in the Women’s World Cup following Germany’s surprising exit. However, this tournament has proven that no team can be taken lightly, as upsets have been a recurring theme.

Morocco’s journey has been a remarkable underdog story, securing a second-place finish ahead of Germany, the second-ranked team in the world, after defeating Group H winners, Colombia.

Interestingly, with Canada, ranked seventh in the world, also eliminated, England’s side of the draw now includes just two of the top 10 teams.

In the last 16, Sarina Wiegman’s squad is set to face Nigeria, ranked 40th, on Monday. A victory in this match would set up a quarter-final clash against either Jamaica, ranked 43rd, or Colombia, ranked 25th.

Notably, all three of these teams have delivered impressive performances at the Women’s World Cup. Nigeria managed to overcome tournament co-hosts Australia en route to securing a second-place finish in Group B. Jamaica showed their mettle with draws against France and Brazil, advancing from Group F as runners-up. And Colombia’s stunning 2-1 victory against Germany led them to top Group H, hinting that more surprises may be in store in the upcoming matches.

For those interested in watching the England vs. Nigeria match, it will be broadcast on the BBC, and the latest updates from the Women’s World Cup can be found on their website.
