Watch live online as England faces unbeaten Norway in a FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup Round of 16 knockout match Monday, with the winner going on to meet host nation Canada in the tournament’s final eight. The match marks a huge moment in the history of England women’s soccer — the nation that invented the game has never won a knockout-stage match in the Women’s World Cup.
Norway, on the other hand, have traditionally been one of the top teams in the tournament, finishing as runners-up in the first-ever Women’s World Cup back in 1995, then winning the whole thing in 1995.
To find out how to watch the England vs. Norway FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup Round of 16 match live online, see the information at the bottom of this article. The match kicks off at 4 p.m. Monday, June 22, at Landsdowne Stadium in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada — 1 p.m. Pacific Time.
Led by teenage striking sensation Ada Hegerberg, Norway blew past Thailand and the Ivory Coast in 2015 group play, but most impressively, they forced a 1-1 draw with tournament favorite — and world’s No. 1 ranked team — Germany.
Norway’s history and strong, unbeaten performance in Group B make them favorites to defeat a tough England side — but not by much. After opening the tournament by falling to France 1-0, the Three Lionesses clawed their way to 2-1 wins over both Mexico and scrappy Colombia, who have become the dark horse in this year’s Women’s World Cup.
Colombia faces the United States later on Monday — for information on how to watch that match live online, go to this link.
England’s World Cup so far has been the very definition of a total team effort, with 32-year-old coach Mark Sampson using all 20 outfield players in the squad over the three group stage games. Now England’s sights are set on advancing in the knockout round for the first time ever.
“The staff have worked really hard to make sure this group are the most together unit in the tournament and be in a position to sense the pressure… This tournament is in our hands. Now the big challenge is — can we make history?”
