After Italy, late Friday evening (06/14/19), England also made the leap into the playoffs of the Women's World Cup in France. Argentina's last wife Vanina Correia did not make the success of the Lioness easy.
For 60 minutes, “Ocean Stud” in Le Havre looked as if Argentinean goalkeeper Vanina Correa could lead his team to an unexpected victory over the favorites of the World Cup in England. But the penalty held (28) and four more, sometimes strong, parades were not enough, because Jody Taylor once defeated the final woman from South America (61).
The second victory in the second game at the World Cup final in France is already before the British before the last group match against Japan on Wednesday (19:06:19, 21:00, live on sportschau.de) in the second round. Argentina can still reach the knockout round – a prerequisite for this is a victory over Scotland at the end of the preliminary round.
Correia Parries Parrice-Elfer Strongly
Argentina was sent to the field by coach Carlos Borrello in a compact form 4-3-3 – and he had only one goal with his team: not to miss a goal behind his back. The constellation in group D before the start of the game: get a point against England for South Americans, and then win against Scotland, this is enough to go to the World Cup knockout stages.
From the very beginning, viewers saw a one-sided game in the truest sense of the word: England not only almost always owned the ball, but also spent most of its time deep on the half of the Argentine side of the field. The lack of lionesses in the first phase of assault and drang: they earned themselves no great opportunities in a narrow spot in the penalty area. Argentina's final winger Correa shot a penalty from Nikita Parris in the 28th minute In the first group match against the national team of Scotland, there was still a kick from the point. Even then, the keeper acted flawlessly on the line and in the penalty area, so that a draw was a draw against one of the favorites to win the World Cup during the break.
Mead prepares great
After the break, the audience offered the same picture for a quarter of an hour: the English women ran, Correya pulled away two great opportunities – and not only did she see herself slowly, but already as a “match winner”.
But nothing came of it: when Taylor made the perfect direct pass to Beth Meade to earn 1: 0 for an excellent Brit, the last wife was impotent. This blow was the logical consequence of the playful superiority of Phil Neville’s trained former professional team – his team played almost three times more programs than Argentinian women. Scott (65th, 72nd) and Parris (85th) still had a chance to make it 2-0 by the end of the match, but nobody cared about it after the final whistle World Championship third 2015.
