Frustrated Lionesses handed major scare by Nigeria before familiar hero Chloe Kelly delivers again


ngland are alive at this World Cup, but the Lionesses were scared like never before.

Sarina Wiegman warned in the build-up to this last-16 clash that Nigeria were no pushovers, though no one expected a battle like this. England are through to the quarter-finals, but only after 120 minutes of goalless football and a penalty shootout.

Before that, it was a night of frustration for England, summed up by Lauren James being sent off for a stamp on Nigeria defender Michelle Alozie three minutes before the end of normal time. A young England star, wearing the No7 shirt, sent off at World Cup for a moment of madness. Sound familiar?
