The reigning European Champions, England, have qualified for the quarters in the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.
This comes at the expense of the Super Falcons after they were knocked out via the post-match penalties (4-2).
However, the highlight of the pulsating match was the encounter between England’s forward, Lauren James, with Super Flacon’s fullback- Alozie.
She made an erratic challenge on Alozie, which forced the referee to give her a yellow card. However, after the VAR review, she was given a straight yellow card.
This is contrary to Lauren’s form in the tournament, since prior to the sending-off, Lauren was in the form of her life- she scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists in their 6-1 win over China.
