Japan Women vs England Women Match Preview
England Women have secured their ticket to the knockout stages with narrow wins in their first two outings, where a single goal from Jodie Taylor untangled the contest against Argentina (1-0) and first-half goals from Nakita Parris and Ellen White proved enough for all three points against Scotland (2-1).
Phil Neville’s ladies have had troubles with Albiceleste as Parris missed a penalty this time around, as Vanina Correa’s heroics almost proved costly. They will want to keep up such consistency but will surely want to have an easy night in Nice too, with a tough schedule looming.
Japan have more to play for and have Argentina looking to challenge them at the 2nd, with a three-point gap and a goal difference of two to make up. They’ve beaten the Scottish Ladies 2-1 on Friday and made a great step towards securing the spot, though, which will have them just as motivated.
Nadeshiko have come into the group as heavy favourites to get through and now it’s time to prove their worth, even after a slow start and being denied the points in a goalless draw against Argentina on Matchday 1. They’ll surely be more motivated and we feel it will show at Allianz Riviera.
We will thus stick with them to secure at least a point on the day and going for a Double Chance – Japan to win or Draw feels like value at 5/6 with bet365, especially with England having little to play for except consistency.
We do feel we’re in for goals and they’ll have to cope in the final third if they’re to so, which also has us going for a Yes on Both teams to score – which comes at 11/10 with Paddy Power and catches the eye of many in the know.
