Women's World Cup Tips: England to overcome Denmark

Things are heating up at the Women's World Cup with teams on the cusp of elimination or the knockout stages as the group phase progresses this week and on Friday England are back in action against Denmark in Sydney.

Liam Flin's England v Denmark Tips

England to win & under 2.5 goals @ 7/4
Rachel Daly to score anytime @ 7/5
Georgia Stanway to be booked @ 4/1

Odds displayed were correct at the time of writing and subject to fluctuation.

Setting the scene…..

It was not the eye-catching, swashbuckling performance many anticipated but Euro 2022 winners England got their Women's World Cup campaign off to a positive start with a 1-0 win over Haiti on Saturday.

The Lionesses would have hoped for more from the contest, having managed 11 shots on target in Brisbane, but three points are three points and their attention now shifts to arguably their toughest fixture in Group D against Denmark.

A win over the Danes coupled with a draw in the group's other match between China and Haiti would see England through to the knockouts, while Denmark themselves are looking to make it back-to-back victories in Group D.

England to win & under 2.5 goals @ 7/4

Not everything went England's way in that opener in Brisbane and it was only a retaken penalty from Georgia Stanway which proved to be the difference between them and minnows Haiti.

But punters should note that England's excellent Euro 2022 campaign last year also began with a somewhat underwhelming 1-0 win over Austria and tournament football is all about results.

England are still trying to settle on their best attacking combination in the absence of Beth Mead, so goals could again be at a premium but the Lionesses have still lost only one of their 33 matches under Sarina Wiegman and can grind out a narrow victory.

Liam Flin's Tip:

England have scored just one goal in their last three internationals, so punters should not expect a high-scoring clash when they face Denmark. An England win and under 2.5 goals could be the way to go at 7/4.

Rachel Daly to score anytime @ 7/5

One of the big talking points around England coming into this Women's World Cup was focused on who would lead the line in the absence of Mead and it was Russo who was given the nod against Haiti.

However, Russo failed to get on the scoresheet in the first match and Wiegman has since claimed she is open to making changes for the game with Denmark.

Russo could be one of the starters from the last match to make way, meaning Rachel Daly could have more of a role to play against the Danes.

Daly previously played as a full-back for England but has thrived as a striker for Aston Villa in the Women's Super League and could cause Denmark problems.

Liam Flin's Tip:

Forward Daly struck 22 goals in the Women's Super League last season and is worth a bet to score at any time in this match at 7/5.

Georgia Stanway to be booked @ 4/1

England dominated the ball against Haiti last time out at the Women's World Cup, amassing 75 per-cent possession, yet Georgia Stanway was still drawn into a few too many fouls for the Lionesses.

England's goalscorer made four fouls in that opening contest, having been shown a yellow card, and she could also be caused a few problems in the middle of the park against Denmark.

Liam Flin’s Tip:

Stanway went into the book against Haiti and is worth a bet at 4/1 to also be shown a card against Denmark in England's toughest group game, having also been awarded a card in the Euro 2022 final against Germany last year.
