England came into the Women’s World Cup 2023 under a cloud of injuries, having lost three key players (Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Fran Kirby) before a ball was even kicked. A sluggish 1-0 win against Haiti did little to settle the nerves, and when influential midfielder Keira Walsh was stretchered off with a knee injury against Denmark, England’s tournament looked in danger of spiraling. However, a scintillating 6-1 win over China, and the remarkable form of Lauren James, has the reigning European champions bouncing in this first knockout round having topped Group D with maximum points. 

Meanwhile, Nigeria finished as runner-up in Group B at the expense of Canada and Ireland, and while the side only won a single group game, this result came against the odds as they beat joint tournament hosts Australia 3-2 to shock the home crowd. Nigeria will hope to flip the script once again when they face England at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. If the Super Falcons are to progress expect five-time African Women’s Footballer of the Year winner Asisat Osholala to play a key role. The Barcelona striker had a relatively quiet group stage, but is the squad’s talisman and is ranked as one of the best in her position in the world. 

Here's how they line up: 

England: Earps, Bronze, Greenwood, Bright, Carter, Daly, Walsh, Stanway, Hemp, James, Russo.

Nigeria: Nnadozie, Plumptre, Ohale, Onumonu, Payne, Ucheibe, Kanu, Demehin, Ajibade, Ayinde, Alozie.

The England vs Nigeria live stream should be a thrilling encounter as both these sides look to secure a place in the quarter-finals. You won’t want to miss this one and below you’ll find all the details you need in order to watch the match online and from anywhere in the world.

How to watch England vs Nigeria anywhere

England vs Nigeria live streams will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.
