Other than the match against Nigeria on the 7th of August, where captain Millie Bright and her colleagues had to endure penalty roulette, the Lionesses enjoyed nothing but smooth sailing to the final game at Stadium Australia. England began their FIFA Women’s World Cup with a 1-0 win against Haiti, a 1-0 win over Denmark, and a brutal 6-1 beating against China in the group stage of the tournament.
Immediately, Lionesses had issues defeating Nigeria but eventually managed to win 4-2 in the penalty shootout, with Chloe Kelly, Alex Greenwood, Rachel Daly, and Bethany England scoring the goals for the team. With a 2-1 quarter-final win over Colombia and a solid 1-3 versus hosts Australia, Lionesses reached the World Cup final versus much-admired Spain. Now, fans are wondering if the team can go all the way to the top.
After the Euro 2022 triumph, can the Lionesses truly win a second major trophy for England in just a one-year period? The previous World Cup success was back in 1966 when England defeated West Germany. World Cup glory is long overdue and you should know there are plenty of ways to watch the England Women’s game live on tv. Here’s all you need to know before the kick-off.
