  1. CLOSE!

    Norway 0-0 Australia

    The link up play between Caitlin Foord, Hayley Raso and Sam Kerr is already a joy to watch and the three are all involved in a great chance for Australia.

    A long cross-field ball by Foord finds Raso wide right. The forward cuts into the area, plays a one-two with Kerr before shooting but it is straight at the keeper.

    Norway 0-0 Australia

    Hayley Raso tries to slip the ball in for Caitlin Foord as Australia come forward but the pass is cut out by a Norway defender.

    Positive start by both teams in these first few minutes.

    Norway 0-0 Australia

    Despite that early scare, Norway don’t look rattled. They are the ones with the possession at the moment and Vilde Risa tries her luck from distance. Off target.

    That chance showed how bright and quick Sam Kerr can be.

    She’s very good at getting between the two centre-halves. Her aerial ability is superb, but she is also good with the ball at her feet.

    I’m sure it’s going to be a game full of goals. I think it’s going to be a tough game for Australia against the Norwegians.

  6. CLOSE!

    Norway 0-0 Australia

    Oh my! Sam Kerr almost has her sixth goal of the tournament after just 25 seconds!

    The striker is picked out by a lovely forward pass and Kerr cooly steps inside her marker but shoots just the wrong side of the post.

    A warning shot for Norway.


    Norway 0-0 Australia

    Expect this one to be tight, it may even go the distance.

    Australia get us under way!

    Norway v Australia (20:00 BST)

    It’s coffee o’clock for Australia fans watching from their homes because it is 3am in the morning out there.

    No such trouble for Norway fans as it is just about to go 9pm over there.

    Sam Kerr is no secret to women’s football aficionados, but thanks to her performances in France she is on her way to becoming a household name in the wider sporting world.

    Scorer of her country’s opening goal in the 2019 tournament, she subsequently netted four more in their final group game win over Jamaica – you can check out those goals in the above video.

    With 36 goals in 80 international caps and the captain’s armband on her bicep, she will be leading her country from the front in every sense today.

  14. Alex Scott’s player to watch

    For me, Sam Kerr came into the World Cup with a lot of pressure. She’s now a poster girl for her goal scoring in the American league as well as the poster girl in Australia.

    At the start of the tournament it wasn’t going Australia’s way but she is someone who has stepped up. She scored four in one game and I think she’s living up to the hype.

  15. Kerr-ching

    Norway v Australia (20:00 BST)

    No doubting who the Australia players are looking to forward to seeing. I’ve just seen a few of their fans in the stands with giant masks of Sam Kerr’s face.

    The hotshot striker is going for goal number six of the tournament, which would make her the outright top scorer.

  16. First ones through

    Germany 3-0 Nigeria

    Germany became the first team to secure their place in the quarter-finals after beating Nigeria 3-0 earlier today.

    Once again, VAR was at the heart of things. Check out the highlights below.

  17. England eyes watching

    This is a tie that the England players and fans will be watching with interest.

    That’s because whoever wins this game will play either Cameroon or the Lionesses – who play each other tomorrow – in the quarter-finals.

  18. How these teams got through

    Norway v Australia (20:00 BST)

    Both sides finished second in their respective groups with two wins and one defeat.

    Australia beat Brazil and Jamaica 3-2 and 4-1 respectively in Group C but were beaten 2-1 by Italy.

    Norway, meanwhile, kicked off their Women’s World Cup campaign with a 3-0 win against Nigeria before being beaten 2-1 by France. They then rounded off the group stage with a 2-1 win against South Korea.

  19. Team news

    Norway v Australia (20:00 BST)

    Just the one change for Norway from their win against South Korea in their final group game. Winger Karina Saevik comes in for Lisa-Marie Utland.

    Despite thumping Jamaica 4-1 in their final group game, Australia make four changes.

    Elise Kellond-Knight, Caitlin Foord, Tameka Yallop and Hayley Raso all come in to the starting XI.

  20. We meet again


    Copyright: .

    There’s no need for introductions, these two sides know each other very well.

    This is the third time in the last four World Cups in which they have met. The previous two meetings ended in a 1-1 draw and a 2-1 win for Australia.

    But this time things are different. Both those previous meetings were in the group stage. This is the first time they have faced off in a knockout game.

    Strap yourselves in, this could prove to be THE game of the last 16 stage.
