Two more teams will book their spots to the 2019 Women’s World Cup quarterfinals on Sunday, and the day commences with England confronting Cameroon. England went 3-0-0 to win Group D in spite of not excessively awing, while Cameroon snuck through as a third-place team with an emotional 95th-minute champ from Ajara Nchout against New Zealand on Thursday.
England: Most contenders have had that agreeable win where they simply overwhelm an adversary, yet England hasn’t had that. An performance highlighting two one-goal successes and afterward a 2-0 win upon Japan in which they were outplayed is a bit concerning. This is where they can win easily and produce some momentum. Ellen White’s two goals against Japan should give her confidence to rehash her performance.
Cameroon: Having officially played Canada and the Netherlands, this Cameroon team is tried. Blend that with the certainty and force earned in the wake of beating New Zealand, and you have a team that trusts it can pull this off. They should protect in high numbers and attempt to keep this a 1-0 game. On the off chance that they fall behind and are compelled to go ahead, England could cut them up with their play down the wing. They should play carefully.
