Women’s World Cup round of 16: Norway vs Australia
Norway: Aside from the lost to France, Norway has been strong in the cup with wins over Nigeria and South Korea. They haven’t been excessively inventive in assault, however their patience has helped with their effectiveness in assault. Keep an eye on their capacity to break lines with balls to the feet and snappy goes retreat wide. They are a dangerous team that will feel positive about winning this one.
Australia: Kerr’s four-goal performance has her beaming with confidence, as well as her team. The Aussies felt sufficiently able to win their group, however completing second puts them on the harder side of the bracket. Anticipate that them should play more defensive after showing some issues at the back, and they’ll look for Kerr in space so she can show off her attacking magic.
