Lionesses Off to Roaring Start; Italy a Dark Horse
England resume their World Cup campaign at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre and can afford to feel upbeat in their preparation for Argentina despite not reaching their best in the opening win over Scotland.
Goals from Nikita Parris and Ellen White had the Lionesses two goals up before the break. It was clear how much it meant from the former to score her first World Cup goal from the spot, via Match of the Day (UK only):
Parris sprinted to the bench with gusto after nudging her side ahead, via Fox Sports (U.S. only):
Claire Emslie pulled one back in what ended as a more spirited second half for the Scots, who hope for a better result against Japan if they can display the same perseverance.
Argentina, ranked 37th in the world, should be an easier test for England. Left-back Alex Greenwood told Sky Sports she expects a better performance now Phil Neville's side have had a chance to warm up:
Japan and Argentina drew 0-0 in their opener and will want to score their first goals of the tournament.
Scotland were unbeaten in five matches (four wins) prior to the England defeat, and their players remain hopeful of a place in the knockout stages despite the early loss, via Sky Sports:
Italy were the underdogs in their meeting with Australia but emerged 2-1 winners thanks to a game-winning brace from Barbara Bonansea.
Bonansea's second strike came five minutes into injury time and showed an intriguing similarity with a strike from Italy legend Francesco Totti, per Fox Sports:
Italy reached the final of the 2006 World Cup but have never done so in the women's competition. They reached the quarter-finals of the inaugural tournament but haven't gone past the group stage since.
The Azzurre should be capable of beating Jamaica to keep up their winning start in France and move back to the top of Group C.
