Northern Ireland vs England prediction
Even with progression to the quarter-finals secured, England will be keen to keep confidence high and ensure they do into the knockout stages on a high.
It’s unlikely to be the absolute hammering the Lionesses pulled off last time, but the Northern Ireland defence is not good enough to keep the Lionesses out, regardless of who lines up in attack.
England win, 4-0.
