England vs Argentina: An Opportunity for England

13:53, 18 Jun 2019

England and Argentina will play their next Women’s World Cup 2019 group game on Friday, 14th June at the Stade Oceane. 

England and Argentina will play each other on Friday in their next Women’s World Cup 2019 group game. England won their opening match, defeating Scotland 2 – 1 over the weekend. Argentina are yet to play their first game, but they have come to the tournament after defeating Uruguay in a friendly.

Before coming to the World Cup England had some mixed results this year. They lost 0 – 1 to Canada in April and 0 – 1 to New Zealand a few weeks ago. However, in between those games they defeated Denmark 2 – 0 and Spain 2 – 1. Argentina have had a less successful year, losing to the Korea Republic, New Zealand and Australia before their victory over Uruguay last month.

The teams have played each other once before, in the Women’s World Cup in 2007, and England comfortably won that game 6 – 1. This year both teams have faced New Zealand and both lost to them. It could be a closely fought match, but England have every reason to feel confident.
