Having collected maximum points from their first two World Cup outings, Phil Neville’s Lionesses have booked their place in the knockout stages of the tournament with the minimum of fuss. An opening-weekend 2-1 win over Scotland was followed by a closely-fought 1-0 victory over Argentina and most pundits expect England to finish the group stage on a high with a win over Japan tonight.
It certainly hasn’t been plain sailing for the Lionesses and they will certainly be in for some tougher challenges ahead, however they will look to keep their cool in Nice tonight and go through to the knockout stages of the competition on the back of a perfect record.

Japan have it all to play for as they look to maintain the gap between themselves and third-placed Argentina, this currently standing at three points. They edged past Scotland to the tune of 2-1 on Friday evening and as such they will be highly motivated to continue in a similar fashion this evening.
Nadeshiko went into the competition as one of the favourites to make it into the knockout stages and while we don’t envisage them getting the better of Phil Neville’s girls tonight, we do believe that they will do enough to end the Lionesses’ perfect group record and claim a share of the spoils, BetVictor Bookmakers going 21/10 on a draw.
