England’s Lionesses take early 1-0 lead against Cameroon in knockout Women’s World Cup match
England got the knock-out stage of their Women’s World Cup campaign underway with a much-anticipated match against Cameroon.
Fans gathered at the Stade du Hainaut this afternoon in Valenciennes, France, for the tense Round Of 16 game.
The game kicked-off at 5.30pm local time and sees England’s Lionesses face-off against their opponents, known as the Indomitable Lionesses.
Germany and Norway are already through to the quarter-finals after winning their first Women’s FIFA World Cup knockout stage fixtures.
The Lionesses topped Group D thanks to wins over Japan, Argentina, and Scotland, and so have a favourable draw against Cameroon, who only won one match in Group E.
