England progressed to the World Cup despite Lauren James' red card in the Round of 16 against Nigeria.

England are back in the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the fifth time in a row after beating Nigeria in the penalty shootout.

A late red card by England forward Lauren James forced England to go into extra time.

Nigeria had 20 shots for the game, only two of which hit the target.

The penalty shoot-out went in favor of England, who went 4–2 after Chloe Kelly's powerful penalty.

English forward Lauren James attacked Nigerian defender Michel Eloji.

After VAR assistance in this match, James was shown a red card and disqualified from the match.

James is then automatically suspended for the quarter-finals.

England will play the winner of Colombia-Jamaica on August 12 at 6:30PM ET.
