Preview – Women’s World Cup: Norway v England

Norway England

While this match was originally scheduled to go out on BBC Four, it may well be moved due to the fact that it is an England game. EDIT: It has moved to BBC One.

Having won 3-0 against Cameroon, in a game that will sadly be remembered more for the behaviour of the Cameroonian players and controversial refereeing rather than for the goals, the Lionesses now take on Norway in the quarter-finals, who got through on a penalty shoot-out against Australia. England previously defeated the Norwegians in the last World Cup, winning 2-1.

However, if England do win the game, it looks like they will have their hardest opponents possible in the semi-final, taking on either hosts France or the current World Cup holders America.

Norway v England is on BBC One at 19.30 (kick-off 20.00).
