VAR pivotal again as England beat Cameroon

England beat Cameroon 3-0 to set up a date against Norway in the quarterfinals of the Women's World Cup -- but VAR once again dominates the debate.

Tom Hamilton Senior Writer 

It's all calmed down a little now in Valenciennes after the most eventful of matches. England will go through and lead 3-0 thanks to Houghton, White and Greenwood's goals but Cameroon furious with three decisions. First they were upset with the decision to award a freekick for a back pass that led to Houghton's goal, then furious at the VAR call to overturn an offside to give White's goal the green light and then at the start of the second-half, they were livid with the VAR call to overturn Nchout's goal.

Bizarre situation. Cameroon are distraught with referee's decision to award England goal as the big screen flashed up with Parris in an offside position (she wasn't involved in the play). Cameroon refuse to kick off and it takes the manager to get them going again but there was a solid 2/3 minute break there over the VAR confusion.

Midway through the first half in Valenciennes and England are in complete control against a physical Cameroon side. England lead 1-0 thanks to Haughton's goal from an indirect free-kick just outside Cameroon's six-yard box after the goalkeeper picked up a back-pass. Duggan has also put one effort wide, but England are playing well and with authority.

“The strength of our team is that we have a lot of strengths.” Those were the words from U.S. midfielder Rose Lavelle, who extolled the team's depth and ability to succeed with various starting lineups. The U.S. takes on Spain in the Round of 16 on Monday.

Without elaborating, USWNT coach Jill Ellis says Alex Morgan and Julie Ertz are both "fine" entering Monday's knockout game against Spain. Ertz didn't play in the final group game because of a hip contusion. Morgan left at half in what Ellis termed at the time a precautionary move.

Jill Ellis was succinct in answering questions about the health of the American players ahead of their match against Spain in the Women's World Cup. “Alex is fine,” the U.S. head coach said Sunday in a press conference. Ellis also said there are no concerns with Julie Ertz, who missed the last game against Sweden with a hip injury.
