Argentina are available at 25/1 (26.0) to pull off a huge shock in Le Havre, while another draw is 8/1 (9.0) with the same firm.

Team News

Ellen White was preferred to Jodie Taylor in attack and the 30-year-old repaid Neville's faith in her, scoring what turned out to be the winning goal against Scotland.

Carlos Borrello is likely to set his side up in a similar 4-1-4-1 formation as he did in their Group D opener. Florencia Jaimes should lead the line once again although the Lyon striker is likely to have her work cut out against the Lionesses.

Preview

With such a short-priced favourite finding an appealing angle could prove tough for punters looking to back England.

"No" on Both teams to score is just 2/5 (1.40) with little expected of the South Americans in the final third after a defensive display last time out.

It's 6/10 (1.60) that Neville's side score in both halves and while they kept Japan at bay on matchday one, England are expected to be fast out of the blocks in Le Havre.

Predictions

While England undoubtedly have more cutting edge than Japan, this game could be a similar story of attack versus defence, especially in the early stages.

Argentina kept New Zealand at bay until half-time before conceding twice in their recent FFA Cup of Nations encounter. Similarly, a 1-0 deficit after 45 minutes against South Korea in the same tournament turned into a 5-0 defeat by the final whistle.

William Hill are 19/20 (1.95) about the second half seeing more goals than the first and that looks solid enough ahead of this World Cup clash.
