European champions England came into the World Cup without a win in normal time in three competitive matches plus one behind-closed-doors friendly, though they did claim the inaugural Women’s Finalissima against Brazil on penalties. The Lionesses were also goalless in three games and did look pretty nervy in front of goal in their World Cup opener against an impressive Haiti side making their debut. However, Georgia Stanway’s first-half penalty was enough to secure all there points for England and they’ll be hoping to build on it.

Back at the World Cup for the first time since 2007, Denmark looked to be marking their return to the world stage with a goalless draw against China but Amalie Vangsgaard scored in the 89th minute to hand the European nation the victory. Now, they’re looking to reach the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time since 1995 and win more than one game at a single tournament for the first time ever.

England vs Denmark goalscorer tip

Rachel Daly to score first @ 5/1 with Ladbrokes

Rachel Daly started on the bench against Haiti but given England’s woes in front of goal there is every chance she could come into the XI. In her 14-minute cameo last time out, Daly had three shots with two on target, while she also won the Golden Boot in the WSL last season with 22 goals for Aston Villa.

England to win, Over 2.5 Goals, BTTS & Half-Time Draw @ 10.62/1 with Betfair

Although they did taste defeat for the first time under Sarina Wiegman in a friendly against Australia, England have won 17 of their 18 competitive games under Sarina Wiegman and the only match they officially failed to win was the Women’s Finalissima, which they did take on penalties. In their first game against Haiti, England nine shots in the first half compared to 12 after the break, while Denmark had just two in the opening 45 minutes of their win over China compared to 11 after half-time.

England vs Denmark team news

England have a fresh squad for their second group game against Denmark but there will be question marks over who starts up front between Alessia Russo and Rachel Daly. Bethany England is the third striker option but appears to be out of favour with Wiegman despite her good form for Tottenham in the second half of the WSL season.

Pernille Harder led the line for Denmark in their win over China, picked ahead of Signe Bruun and Amalie Vangsgaard. Despite the  latter coming off the bench to score the winner, Harder is likely to start up front once more, with no injury issues.
