England may not have been firing on all cylinders, but they have still collected maximum points from their opening two games.

Haiti and Denmark have both been beaten 1-0, and the reigning European champions will be eager to build momentum heading into the knockout stages.

China bounced back from a 1-0 defeat to Denmark by beating Haiti by the same scoreline to keep their hopes of progression alive.

They must now better the Danes’ result against the Haitians to stand any chance of advancing.

England vs China goalscorer tip

Although still seeking her first goal of the tournament, Russo has led the line in both of England’s opening two matches.

She registered a game-high six shots on goal against Haiti, five of which were on target.

England to win 2-0, Over 1.5 goals, BTTS No & Alessia Russo to score anytime @ 10.19/1 with Paddy Power

England have yet to concede a goal at this World Cup, and they will fancy recording a third successive clean sheet.

The Lionesses will also be confident of extending their impressive scoring streak in matches, and they would make history by finding the net again here.

Russo has been unlucky not to open her account at the finals, registering a combined eight shots with success. But now would be an ideal time for her fortunes to change heading into the crunch stages of the tournament.

England vs China team news

England will be without star midfielder Keira Walsh, who limped off during the victory over Denmark. But with the Lionesses’ passage to the knockout stages still not guaranteed, Sarina Wiegman is likely to field as strong a side as possible.

China are unlikely to make too many alterations to the side that overcame Haiti. Although, they will have to make do without the suspended Zhang Rui, who was sent off in that encounter.
