On paper it looks like we’re set for a tightly-contested 2019 Women’s World Cup quarter-final today – the roaring Lionesses against the former champions Norway. And it’s one you’ll be able to watch from anywhere around the world with our England vs Norway live stream guide below.
It’s hard to imagine tonight’s game being any more eventful than England’s bizarre last 16 clash with Cameroon. Phil Neville’s side got through the bruising encounter with a 3-0 win, but not unscathed with Steph Houghton a major doubt for tonight’s game.
Despite having won the tournament in 2005, Norway go into this evening’s game as slight underdogs with Betfair. Nevertheless, their morale will be at a high, following their gripping penalty shoot-out win over Australia.
Live stream England vs Norway – where and when
Today’s match takes place at the Stade Oceane stadium in the French north coast city of Le Havre.
Kick-off is at 9pm CET, meaning a 8pm BST for viewers in the UK.
There’s more than just a place in the Women’s World Cup semi-finals at stake tonight – the tournament is also used for qualification to the 2020 Olympic Games with only the top three European nations making the cut. With seven teams from the continent remaining in the World Cup, tonight’s result could prove crucial to Great Britain heading to Japan.
While they may have only shipped a single goal in the tournament so far, England looked far from convincing at the back against Cameroon. That defence may look even rockier with a virus sweeping through the England camp that is said to have laid low Lioness centre-half Millie Bright.
The big question mark hanging over Norway will be how much their gruelling extra-time against Australia will impact on their energy levels.
Don’t miss any of today’s action by following the instructions below and grabbing a live stream of Norway vs England wherever you are in the world.
