England vs Scotland: What has been said?

Former England star Claire Rafferty, who represented the Lionesses at the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, has told talkSPORT what Neville’s side can expect in their Group D clashes.

She said: “I think Scotland is going to be a tough one to start with. Their XI is very strong and defensively they can nullify the threats England have.

“But over the course of 90 minutes they won’t have as much possession as England and Scotland will have to stay concentrated to get something out of that game. If they can keep the likes of Kim Little off the ball then that will help England.

“It’s an emotional game but I see England aren’t getting too caught up in the emotion of it and they’re seeing it for what it is.

“For them [Scotland] it’s a World Cup final especially when you consider how badly they lost to England last time out (losing 6-0 at Euro 2017). They will want revenge and have had a good run going into the tournament.

“Japan are quite a dominant team. They’ve got the Lyon player Saki Kumugai who is fantastic. I know Japan didn’t have their strongest team but England did beat them in the SheBelieves Cup so they’ve managed to switch their mentality to help them beat the big teams.

“Argentina aren’t brilliantly organised but that can be quite hard to play against because it’s hard to predict what patterns they’ll play in.

“The group for England is tougher than anyone is letting on.”
