Englands Lauren James sent off for stamp against Nigeria – misses quarter-final
England player Lauren James has apologised for her red card and actions against Nigeria’s Michelle Alozie. Says she will learn from the experience.
In an outburst of frustration, James stamped on Michelle Alozie’s back in the 87th minute after losing possession and was rightly shown a red card following a video assistant referee (VAR) review.
James will miss the quarter-finals and could face a longer suspension should Fifa deem it worthy.
Her loss certainly felt, given Lauren is England’s leading scorer at the tournament. She also popped up to provide the winner in the 1-0 victory over Denmark in the second group game.
