James, sister of Chelsea right-back Reece James, pushed Alozue to the ground before deliberately stamping her after the full-back dispossessed her.
The referee whistled for a foul and showed the Chelsea winger a yellow card but rescinded the decision and sent her off after a VAR review.
On social media, Ghanaians and Nigerians slammed James’ stunt. Football fans have also spoken out against her.
Lauren James is in contention for the Player of the Tournament award after scoring 4 goals and providing 3 assists in four games but she may have played her last game of the tournament.
England, despite being a woman down, went on to beat Nigeria 4-2 on penalties to progress to the quarter-finals.

That was very silly from Lauren James. Clearly frustrated all game and her tournament could be over.

I love Lauren James but what a stupid thing to do at this level. She’s been sent off for stamping on one of the Nigerian players, Michelle Alozie. pic.twitter.com/h4x1JRthou

Lauren James won’t be remembered for her heroics with that stupid reaction. I hope it cost them dearly. Nigeria deserves to be in the quarter finals
