England vs Cameroon: What has been said?

Captain Steph Houghton feels momentum is building nicely for England heading into the knockout phase.

Houghton said: “We’re really happy. Three big wins.

“I don’t think you can ever really call a performance perfect. I think there’s always going to be times when the other team has the upper hand.

“But the thing is, we know we can play better, which is a good thing.

“I think when it gets to this World Cup stage, playing against these sorts of opponents, it’s important to make sure we win, no matter what, and I feel as though there have been glimpses of what we can do with the ball.

“The momentum is coming along nicely. I think everybody is getting excited and as players we feel like we’re in a good position where we can look forward to the game on Sunday.”

Former England captain Faye White told talkSPORT the Lionesses must improve.

“If I look at all of their games so far, the concern I would have is that, after about 60 minutes, the team starts to lose its shape, they stop being able to keep the ball and their energy dips.”
