In a battle of for survival in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Lionesses of England must hold off what is certain to be a spirited challenge from the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon. This comes after the African side edged their way into the knockout stage with a miracle 2-1 win over New Zealand in only their third World Cup, as the BBC reported.
A stoppage-time goal by Ajara Nchout allowed the previously winless Indomitable Lionesses to scrape out the three points that earned them one of the two third-place slots that won advancement to the Round of 16 — but they will need more than last-minute heroics to get by a powerful England squad that swept through their group with three straight wins and outscored their opponents 5-1 overall, per Soccerway. But England cannot afford a letup against the unpredictable Cameroon side in the match that will live stream from Valenciennes.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Central European Time at the 25,000-seat Stade du Hainaut in Valenciennes, France, on Sunday, June 23. In the United Kingdom, that start time will come at 4:30 p.m. British Summer Time, while in Cameroon, the game also kicks off at 4:30 p.m. Western Africa Time.

Perhaps the most significant obstacle that heavily favored England will need to overcome in the match is simply the sheer chaos the Indomitable Lionesses can cause with their physical and seemingly disorganized style of play. Cameroon has accrued six yellow cards in their three games, according to The Telegraph, and racked up 15 fouls in their 1-0 loss to the Netherlands alone.
With a world 46th ranking from FIFA, Cameroon is the lowest-ranked team to get through to the knockout stage. England, on the other hand, is ranked at No. 3 in the world. Yet Cameroon’s head coach, Alain Djeumfa, sounded a confident note heading into the match, as quoted by the Associated Press.
“England has some weakness. They have many weaknesses,” the coach known as “Mean Dog” to his players noted cryptically. “We don’t need to list them. I have written them down and have them in my head.”
The winner of the match moves on to the World Cup quarterfinals to face Norway, who defeated Australia’s Matildas in a penalty kick shootout to advance.
