Women’s World Cup on TV: Sunday games feature England-Cameroon, France-Brazil

The buzz: England, ranked third in the world, rolled through group play unbeaten, conceding a goal late in its opener and then shutting out Argentina and Japan. Ellen White has three of England’s five goals, including a brace in the group-play final. The Lionesses have won eight of their last nine Women’s World Cup games, including four in a row dating to 2015. They’ve also scored in nine consecutive Women’s World Cup games, the longest active streak in the competition. Cameroon is in the round of 16 for the second time in as many tries, moving on as a third-place team based on goal differential thanks to a pair from Ajara Nchout in the group final, the second coming five minutes into stoppage time to beat New Zealand. Cameroon has given up multiple goals just twice in seven Women’s World Cup games.
