THE TEAM NEWS

ENGLAND

  • England began their 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign with a win over Scotland and despite some promising signs throughout the game, they still have plenty of improvements to make if they want to win the tournament.
  • After leading 2-0 at the break, England were not as dominant in the second period and will look to produce a 90-minute performance as they face Argentina and attempt to remain at the top of Group D.
  • Phil Neville named what appeared to be his strongest side for the opening game with Scotland and he may look to name an unchanged team as he looks for some consistency from the Lionesses.

ARGENTINA

  • Argentina will see it as a point gained rather than a point lost when they frustrated Japan in their opening game as they earned a goalless draw against the side sitting 30 places higher than them in the world rankings.
  • The Argentines face another tough test here and know their goal will come under siege from an England side that, like Japan, will dominate possession and look to create as many chances in front of goal as possible.
  • After such a solid display in that opening contest, Argentina would like to field an unchanged starting 11 but it won’t be lost on Carlos Borello that it will have been an energy-sapping display and that may force him to freshen his side up.

THE PREDICTION

England showed glimpses of why they are so highly rated and one of the teams that can make a genuine challenge for the World Cup but they will have to be more ruthless in front of goal after allowing Scotland back into the game in their opening clash. They now face an Argentina side that frustrated Japan in their first game in Group D and will be looking to do the same to England. It will pose a good challenge for Phil Neville’s men with the Argentines likely to sit deep and task England with breaking them down but an early goal would help open them up and set the tone for a win.
