Match Preview England v Argentina FIFA Women's World Cup

England are favorites when meeting Argentina in the second match of the 2019 Women's World Cup Group D at Oceane Stadium on Friday (6/14). But, Lionesses midfielder, Keira Walsh, refused to take lightly the opposing team. He actually admitted that he was very impressed with Albicelestes who were able to overcome all the difficulties they faced. Match Preview England v Argentina FIFA Women's World Cup.

Argentina appeared in the Women's World Cup for the third time after 2003 and 2007. In the six matches played in both tournaments, Albicelestes always lost. They also had a two-year vacuum before returning to action in 2018.
Even so, Argentina won the ticket to the 2019 Women's World Cup finals in France after finishing third in the 2018 American Women's Cup and finishing runner-up in Group B under Brazil in the final tournament of the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) zone.

Argentina continued their impressive gait by winning a 0-0 draw against Japan's 2011 World Cup champions Japan in the first match of Group D. This was the first point Albicelestes ever won in this tournament. In fact, Nadeshiko (Japanese nickname) is 30 levels higher than Argentina in the latest FIFA ranking.

"Everything experienced by the Argentine national team made us realize how fortunate we are," Walsh said. "The facilities we have, the presence of Phil Neville as a coach and the many staff who have helped us all this time, all that shows how much attention this country has towards us."

In recent years, women's football in the UK has indeed increased rapidly with the increasing number of spectators coming to the stadium and sponsorship contracts reaching millions. Very contrasting conditions apply in Argentina. The country's women's national team had been in a vacuum for two years because the Argentine Football Association (AFA) refused to finance them.

No wonder the Argentine women's national team achievements lag behind their male counterparts. Even when competing in the 2007 Women's World Cup, Albicelestes only relied on a team consisting of amateur players. Only in 2019 did the AFA support the holding of a professional women's league in the country. Match Preview England v Argentina FIFA Women's World Cup.
"When watching the celebrations they did after successfully gaining the first points in the World Cup, all of that made us inspired to be able to go further," said Walsh who played in Manchester City's women's team. "We want to take home the trophy as a thank you for everything that has been done for us." Match Preview England v Argentina FIFA Women's World Cup.
England made a positive start by beating fellow United Kingdom, Scotland, 2-1 in the first match of Group D in Nice on Sunday (9/6). Striker Ellen White became one of the stars by contributing one goal. This is the proof of the 30-year player against Neville who prefers him to be a starter on the front line rather than his senior, Jodie Taylor, who is the top European Women's Cup 2017 scorer.

"I don't have a personal target in this tournament," White said. "The most important thing for me is to contribute to the team in any way, both on and off the field. Only that is my focus. I don't think of individual targets, I only think of teams."
