England face Norway in the World Cup Quarter-Finals on Thursday in Le Havre.
The Lionesses came through a bruising last 16 clash with Cameroon to reach this stage, as Norway overcame Australia via a penalty shoot-out.
Phil Neville’s side have won every game so far in France, but they have not been overly impressive and they must now overcome Norway – who they beat in the 2015 finals at the last 16 stage.
Captain Steph Houghton – who is an injury doubt herself for the Norway clash – insists they will be up for the tie.
“I thought Norway and Australia really went end to end and it was an intense game,” said Houghton.
“We will respect Norway, they are a very good side. We played them at the last World Cup and it was a tough game so we expect much of the same.”
