World football's governing body confirmed on Monday that it was "looking into" the scenes in Valenciennes, including Cameroon's angry protests at two correct VAR decisions that went against them.
Cameroon twice delayed the restart of play and appeared close to walking off the pitch in protest at the Stade de Hainault. Alain Djeumfa, their head coach, later described the officiating as a "miscarriage of justice".
Fifa is expected to investigate those comments, as well as Augustine Ejangue allegedly spitting on Toni Duggan's arm and Alexandra Takounda’s late, dangerous challenge on Steph Houghton.
Authorities are understood to be compiling reports from the match officials involved and seeking observations on all aspects of Cameroon's conduct, with misconduct charges potentially handed down as early as Tuesday.
The match referee, China's Qin Liang, has been criticised for losing control of the contest in some quarters but Fifa are thought to have supported their official's decisions.
Earlier on Monday, the head of women's football in Africa, Isha Johansen of the Confederation of African Football (Caf), promised that Cameroon's conduct would be investigated "at the appropriate levels of governance."
“Whilst remaining proud of our African teams that participated in the World Cup, the match between England and Cameroon reflected badly, not only on African women’s football but African football on the whole."
Phil Neville, the England head coach, described himself as "ashamed" of Cameroon's behaviour in the aftermath of his side's win. "I’ve never seen circumstances like that on a football pitch and I think that kind of behaviour is pretty sad," he added.
