This match-up is expected to be a lot of fun for the fans, as tightly contested game when these two teams Norway and England face off in this 2015 FIFA Round of 16 World Cup game. England made this far with a balanced game in all their match-ups, while Norway used a stingy defense and a tough offense to come this far. Now the question is which team will take a step forward to winning the World Cup for 2015.

For the England fans that Bet on Soccer at a site such as SBG Global.com your team could just be one of the teams in this tournament to date with the best defense. England (‘The Three Lionesses’) have allowed their opponents only 33 shots on goal, as their goal keeper K. Bardsley in their 3 Group games had 10 saves to date, and only permitted 3 goals in those 3 group stage games.

However, their goal keeper and the team defense will be challenged with the very physical type of offense they play, as in Group Stage 8 they were ranked 4th on scored goals! But, this team is not just about playing defense as they have proven ability in their attack during the last 2 match-ups the scored 4 goals on 39 shots at goal, with K. Carney scoring 2 goals and F. Kirby and F. William each scoring 1 goal for the 4 goal total. The English Women’s team in their last six games, they have won four.

If you’re a Grasshopper fan, as the Norway team is called, to date your team has been very impressive starting in the group with Germany who the tied, and then beating the Ivory Coast and Thailand. They accomplished that with a fast offense and a very tight and physical defensive team. This Norway team has several potential scorers in A. Hegerberg, I. Herlovsen who lead the team with 3 goals for Hegerberg and 2 goals for Herlovsen accompanied by S. Gulbrandsen, T. Ronning and M. Mjelde.

Their strongest play a playmaker is Gulbrandsen who leads her team with some 2 assists and is good at creating shot attempts for the teammates. For Norway to win she will have to create scoring opportunities for her teammates against the suffocating defensive unit of England. The Norway teams incredible stingy defense in led by their goal keeper I. Hjelmseth who most say is the best with an 88.9 save rate and has had 16 saves in this tournament.

The prediction by the media experts is that they like the Grasshoppers of Norway to beat England in this Round of 16 games.
