2023 WWC: FIFA bans Lauren James of England for rest of tournament after red card for stomping on Nigeria’s Michelle Alozie

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.
