Women’s W’cup: English FA seeks Lauren James red card appeal as player expresses remorse

Sequel to Lauren James’ red card against Nigeria, the English Football Association has released a press statement.

Match day referee dismissed Lauren in the second half of the match against the Super Falcons for stamping on Michelle Alozie.

The Chelsea forward is handed an automatic one-game ban, which could be extended following FIFA’s disciplinary process.

The FA spokesman said: “Lauren is really sorry for her actions which led to the red card and is full of remorse. It is wholly out of character for her.

“We will be supporting Lauren throughout and will be putting forward representation on her behalf. We fully respect FIFA’s disciplinary process and will not be making any further comment until after any
decision has been made.”

FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee is yet to release the extent of her suspension.

Early days in the tournament, Nigeria’s Deborah Abiodun served a 3 match ban after being sent off during the Super Falcons’ first group-stage match.
