that's it we're back with the late news at 10. more to come on the news channel. 00:01:08,536 --> 2147483051:37:18,983 now on bbc one, it's time 2147483051:37:18,983 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 for the news where you are. hello and welcome to sportsday. the knock—out stage of the women's world cup is under way, we'll bring you an update on today's matches but first, let's go to valenciennes, where england face cameroon tommorrow for a place in the quarterfinals. our reporterjane dougall is there, you've just been in the press conference with phil neville and jill scott, how did they seem? they seemed to be confident. we were ata training they seemed to be confident. we were at a training earlier as well so we saw the squad training together, fully fit. no injuries following the game against japan which fully fit. no injuries following the game againstjapan which is a relief. a very relaxed mood in the camp after arriving here in northern france. through to the knockout stages, and there is a pretty small—town here in valenciennes. we
source on the team having coffee nearby, they are staying very near to this stadium ahead of tomorrow's match against cameroon. you can probably see the stadium behind me, it has a capacity of around 25,000. quite a footballing town. the players have been milling around and having some time to get coffee. looking ahead to tomorrow, phil neville was speaking about, first of all the fact that england haven't really had that traffic challenge yet but they are expecting that from cameron even though they are only 46 in the world, they are expecting them to pose a challenge. the biggest tests are to come, there is more to get from this team in terms of performance. we are in a really good place to attack the lack 16. we have to keep clean sheets and later we going into the tournament, the
defensive part of our game will have to keep improving. we will have to keep getting better at it because we will be more tested against better teams, and if we keep keeping clean sheets, we will be successful the journal. england have won all three matches so far, of course, but we've yet to see a really convincing 90 minutes from them, haven't we? they haven't got out of second gear yet have a? but you could argue they have not needed to because they have not been challenged enough. saying that, phil neville was very annoyed at the second half performance of england against scotland in their opening match. he said as much afterwards. i think the match against cameroon will be a very different match. in comparison to the opening three. one of the reasons is that cameroon are a very physical side. they are 46 in the fifa rankings so that will be a really huge match, to be meeting the number threes in the world. jill
scott has been speaking in the press conference, the last time that any of the england players were involved ina of the england players were involved in a match against cameroon, was during the 2012 olympics, when team gb played cameron. team gb did beat them 3— zero. she scored in the match and she spoke of the physicality of them. they are a very physicality of them. they are a very physical side, they have nothing to lose. they are 46 in the world, england are third in the world, so they will throw everything at the game and actually it might be a worry for fell neville that there could be injuries and reckless tackles in this match. that may be something he will be considering before he sets out his line—up for this first match in the knockout stages. to underline themselves as being potential winners, the united states are the ones that everyone is looking at. the unbeatable? the
united states still haven't got out of second gear either. earlier in february, england drew 2—2 so they are definitely not unbeatable. i would say they are favourites and they are favourites for a reason. they are number one in the world, the current holders, they have such a quality side and a lot of times in the world cup, some of the scenes peek during the world cup. even though they drew in february, that does not mean they will not come to fruition in this world cup. i would certainly not discount them and if england find themselves coming against the usa, i would not like to put a bet on england winning. i think the usa are self favourites to ta ke think the usa are self favourites to take this term.
if england make it through, they will face norway or australia. we already have one quarter—finalist. two time winners germany are into the last eight after a comfortable 3—0 win over nigeria in grenoble. however, var was once again influential. as miriam walker khan reports. the last time they beat a european tea m the last time they beat a european team was the world cup. it was a tall order for team was the world cup. it was a tall orderfor nigeria. team was the world cup. it was a tall order for nigeria. back on the bench, out with a broken toe. 20 minutes, the nigeria bubble was burst. a corner find minutes, the nigeria bubble was burst. a cornerfind its minutes, the nigeria bubble was burst. a corner find its way to ahead and enter the back of the net. just minutes later, i nigeria player catches a german player. straight on
the net. the germans in full control. next, it was leah schuyler stern. picture perfect for germany who still have not conceded in this yea r‘s who still have not conceded in this year's permit. afghanistan afg ha nista n narrowly afghanistan narrowly miss out on causing probably the biggest shock of the cricket world cup as in the managed to grind out a win in southampton. they leapfrog england. into third. afg hanistan's cricketing journey has been a sporting success story. five games, five defeats, the world cup fairy tale is flagging. now bowling against the mighty unbeaten india,
it would take something special to put a positive spin on things. still, spin is something we do rather well. india struggling. southampton suddenly stunned and silent. others had no luck. the runs still tough to find, wickets in peril. this was an afghanistan show of surprising strength. for a moment, the mood was catching. the target, just 225 cool heads needed. not like that. this was afg hanistan's chance to not like that. this was afghanistan's chance to make the mark on the world game and it looked like a chance they mightjust take. the impossible seemingly now a little less so. nerves, pressure can do funny things. going for glory, only found a safety of indian hand. wickets wrong, their task growing, it was too much. afghanistan getting
agonisingly close to one of the biggest shocks of this or any world cup. a hat—trick ending afg hanistan's dream for cup. a hat—trick ending afghanistan's dream for india, celebrations and relief. new zealand are currently second in the world cup standings and will be all but through to the knockouts if they can beat west indies at old trafford. kane williamson scored his second century of the tournament as he hit 148 offjust 154 balls. the west indies were set 292 to win, but they've already lost two wickets. they're currently 75 for 2. and you can keep across that game on radio 5 live sports extra and the bbc sport website, where you'll also find in—play highlights. world number 38 gilles simon is into the final of queen's tomorrow after beating daniil medvedev. it was another gruelling three—setterfor simon — he's gone the distance in all four of his matches this week. but he eventually got the better of medvedev after ‘over two
