((WATCH TV!)) England v Nigeria live free 7 August 2023

Another friendly in 2002 was also won by Nigeria, 1-0 at Carrow Road in Norwich. England's sole victory is the only competitive meeting on record, which was in the 1995 World Cup group stage. Karen Farley (2) and Karen Walker each scored the Lionesses in a goal-filled 3-2 win that day. READ THE LATEST 2023 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP NEWS, PREVIEWS & PLAYER RATINGSAll 23 players in Sarina Wiegman's squad trained on Sunday, including key midfielder Keira Walsh after recovering from the knee injury she suffered against Denmark. Wiegman has already declared that if Walsh holds up following her first training session since 27 July, she will be deemed fit and would therefore be available. What remains to be seen, however, is exactly how match sharp she is after no involvement for a week and a half.

The other decision for Wiegman is whether to stick the 3-4-1-2 formation that proved so successful against China, revert to her usual 4-3-3, or try something different again. Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala appears to be over the injury that saw her start on the bench in the group stage win over Australia, returning to the lineup against the Republic of Ireland last time out. Deborah Abiodun is serving the last of the three-game suspension that she received following a straight red card in the opener against Canada. What is very clear heading into this game is that, despite being ranked 40th in the world, Nigeria should not be taken lightly.

Nigeria cannot be underestimated. They have talent in abundance and showed they have knowhow by frustrating Canada in their opening game and then beating Australia.
