Scotland awaits old foe, but there are other paths to progress


Group D contains England, Japan, Scotland and Argentina, but those still bitter about the “Hand of God” notwithstanding, the standout tie is England V Scotland.

The sides last met at the Euros two years ago when England won 6-0, but as Prost International Marissa Thomas explains in her preview, you shouldn’t read too much into that.

Even if as expected Steph Houghton’s troops prevail, Scotland are far from out the tournament. Four of the six sides who finish third will qualify, meaning that as few as three points and a positive goal difference, could see a side through.

Given that Argentina would appear to be one of the competition’s weaker sides, that may present the Scots with an opportunity even if they have only garnered one or even no points by the time the face they South Americans in game three.
