The final round of group stage games in Group D at the Women’s World Cup take place on Tuesday. The firm advantage in the race for qualification hangs with England, as the Lionesses currently sit top of the standings after winning each of their opening two matches. However, the reigning EURO champions could yet exit the competition at the first hurdle.
England currently sits three points clear of the chasing sides, but they hold just a two-goal advantage in the race for qualification. Therefore, wins for Denmark and China in the final round of matches would mean that the Lionesses would crash out. England were professional in their previous match, with Lauren James scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Denmark on Friday.
China will be looking to avoid making unwanted history on Tuesday, as they have never previously crashed out at the group stage at the Women’s World Cup. However, they will need to land victory against England in Adelaide on Tuesday to avoid failing to make the round of 16 for the first time in the history of the national side.
China has a poor recent record against European nations at the Women’s World Cup, as they have failed to score in each of their last five. Meanwhile, the Asian nation has a strong record against England, as they have lost just once in the previous five matches that they have played against the Lionesses.
China vs England Prediction
England’s record against China is hard to overlook in this fixture. Therefore, we could see a shock result coming in the final Group D match. However, we expect a draw to be the shock outcome, which may not be enough for the Chinese to gain qualification.
