England remain among the leading contenders for World Cup glory Down Under this summer. However, there is little doubt that they will need to improve after a below-par effort in their opening clash against Haiti. The Lionesses narrowly avoided a shock draw, with the winning goal being scored at the second attempt from the penalty spot by Georgia Stanway.
A lot was made about England’s shortcomings in front of goal before the start of the tournament, as they had failed to score in their previous three matches. A lack of quality in the final third almost cost England once again, as the Lionesses recorded eleven shots on target, but could only find one goal against a lowly-ranked opponent.
Denmark won’t come into this second match with a lack of confidence, as they could also secure their spot in the knockout round of the competition with victory on Friday. The Danes were very professional in their opening match, as they registered a 1-0 win over China. It was a dramatic finish to that match, as Amalie Vangsgaard scored the winning goal in the 89th minute.
England has an excellent record against Denmark, as they have won three of the four matches since 2005. However, it could be testing to ignore their shortcomings in the final third of the field before making a wager on the match in Group D on Friday.
England vs Denmark Prediction
England continued to struggle in front of goal against a poor Haiti side on Saturday. Chances will be harder to come by against a talented Danish side this week, and therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a nervy 0-0 draw played out between the sides.
