Norway Women News and Form

The Norwegians finished second to France in the group stage with a W2 L1 record. Their one loss was a controversial one against the French. That moved them ahead to a difficult game against the enterprising Australia in the round of sixteen. Norway struck first in the first half of the game and looked to be on course to make it through. That was until seven minutes from time when the Australians drew level. With no goals coming in extra time that left the game to be settled on a penalty shootout. Norway took a 4-1 win, Australia missing their first two kicks. So they are back in the quarter-final for the first time since 2007 when they finished fourth.

England to win to nil
11/4

They just look a very solid side and remember this is all without their star player Ada Hegeberg. Their stand out player has been 21-year-old midfielder Ingrid Engen who has been the engine for them. She’s exactly the type of player that England are missing. Norway’s top scorer so far with two goals is Isabell Herlovsen, whose second of the tournament came against Australia. The Norwegians are W3 D1 L1 in their last five games now (90 minutes). Four years ago Norway met England in the round of sixteen and lost 2-1. They have only the one clean sheet in their last seven games.

England Women News and Form

England beat Cameroon 3-0 in their round of sixteen fixture on Sunday. It was just a strangely fractious game though. When England scored their second goal of the game through Ellen White following a VAR intervention, Cameroon imploded. They refused to restart the game immediately and there was lots of shouting and remonstrating with them appearing not to accept the VAR decision. It got worse when they had a goal ruled out in the second half after a really tight offside call. But anyway, England stayed in control of their emotions and delivered the win, regardless.

England have been winning games. They haven’t looked particularly good in doing so, but they have been winning. Is there better to come from them? Their passing has been dreadful at this World Cup in all areas of the pitch. England have won their last four games, shipping just the one goal in that sequence. Ellen White is now up to four goals for the tournament so is probably one of the better options for the Lionesses in the goalscorer markets. England have scored at least two goals in six of their last nine games. The Lionesses have won seven of their last nine World Cup games (D1 L1). In their last five played they have only conceded one goal, which was their one against Scotland in their opening group stage game.

Norway Women v England Women Predictions

Norway to win: England have not been good with their ball and their passing has been nothing short of dreadful in the tournament. They have been winning still, but this will be their first big serious test. Norway are likely to get the better of things in the middle of the park. A Norway – Draw Double Chance is a decent option over 90 minutes.
