Read the latest news and updates on both teams right here, including our predicted Zambia vs Japan Women lineups:

Japan Women

With three wins and a goal difference +11 in group stags, Japan secured first place in their group ahead of Spain, who they beat 4-0 in the last round. So, the former world champions have done very well so far and they proved that they have the quality to go deep in this tournament, although their opponent in Round of 16, Norway, is far from an easy one.

Japan Women Predicted Lineup:

Yamashita – Minami, Kumagai, Ishikawa – Endo, Nagano, Hasegawa, Shimizu – Miyazawa, Tanaka, Ueki

Norway Women

After failing to win in the first two rounds at World Cup group stages, Norway demolished Philippines 6-0 to secure second place in their group and a spot in the knockout stages. This is a quality team that can go far, but their next opponent is Japan, the former champions and a team that's been in fantastic form so far at this tournament.

Norway Women Predicted Lineup:

Mikalsen – Bjelde, Mjelde, Harviken, Hansen – Engen, Boe Risa, Maanum – Hansen, Reiten, Hegerberg

Player to Watch: Hinata Miyazawa

Japan has been in great form at this World Cup so far and one of the players that stood out so far is Hinata Miyazawa, the young winger who plays MyNavi Sendai.

The 23-year-old is currently at the top of the list of best goalscorers with four goals, to which she also added one assist as well. So, Norway needs to be wary of Miyazawa in this game if they want to get a good result.
