An interesting fixture is on the cards as the Nigeria Super Falcons and the Lionesses go toe-to-toe with each other at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. As both teams set their sights on a spot in the quarter-final of the FIFA Women's World Cup, let's see how they could potentially line up for this encounter.

Nigeria Super Falcons vs England probable lineups

Nigeria Super Falcons

Goalkeeper: Chiamaka Nnadozie
Defenders: Ashleigh Plumptre, Blessing Demehin, Osinachi Ohale, Michelle Alozie
Midfielders: Halimatu Ayinde, Christy Ucheibe, Ifeoma Onumonu, Toni Payne, Francisca Ordega
Strikers: Asisat Oshoala

Deborah Abiodun will serve the last of her three-game suspension; she received a straight red in the Super Falcons' opener against Canada. Randy Waldrum will be thankful to have a healthy group of players to choose from, as there are no Injury concerns ahead of this match. The Super Falcons lined up in the 4-2-3-1 formation in all of their group matches, and Randy Waldrum is expected to adopt the same formation, with Asisat Oshoala leading the charge.

England

Goalkeeper: Mary Earps
Defenders: Jess Carter, Millie Bright, Alex Greenwood
Midfielders: Lucy Bronze, Georgia Stanway, Katie Zelem, Rachel Daly
Strikers: Lauren Hemp, Lauren James, Alessia Russo

Keira Walsh will likely return to action for the Lionesses today. The Barcelona midfielder was injured in England's second group game vs Denmark, and missed their 6-1 victory against China. Interestingly, Walsh is back in training, and should be available for today's game. Sarina Wiegman's side are expected to line up in a 3-4-3 formation. It's worth keeping an eye out for Lauren James. The Chelsea striker has been directly involved in six of England's eight matches so far; she has three goals and three assists in this tournament.
