2023 WWC: FIFA Bans England Midfielder Lauren James Following Red Card Against Nigeria


LAGOS AUGUST 8TH (NEWSRANGERS)-England midfielder, Lauren James, will play no further part in the 2023 Women’s World Cup, following her red card against Nigeria.

With the scores still at 0-0, James was sent off for stamping on Michelle Alozie in the 70th minute.

The referee had initially brandished a yellow before she was advised to consult the VAR on-pitch monitor.

England played on with 10 players for the entirety of the extra time but went on to win 4-2 during the eventual penalty shoot-out.

The unnecessary stamp, however, means James has played her last game of the World Cup as dismissals for violent conduct come with a three-match suspension.

FIFA rules state: “A player will be suspended for at least three matches for violent conduct; at least three matches or an appropriate period of time for assault, including elbowing, punching, kicking, biting, spitting or hitting an opponent or a person other than a match official.”

England has a maximum of three fixtures to play as they only qualified for the quarter-finals.
