England vs. Scotland in 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

England's starting XI for the Wembley match against Germany in 2014

While Scotland could not save themselves from defeat, they will take heart from their efforts in their first Women's World Cup finals appearance, two years after being thrashed 6-0 by England in the sides' last meeting, at Euro 2017. I want to have success with England.

The inaugural women's Ballon d'Or victor, who scored a hat-trick for her club in last month's Champions League final, is at odds with her national federation and will be missed. Back better than ever before, she could be the driving force for the Swedish team, and could prove to allow Sweden to become the dark horse of the tournament.

Scotland pulled back a goal in the second half as former Manchester City forward Claire Emslie took advantage of a rare defensive error by England skipper Steph Houghton to slot the ball past goalkeeper Karen Bardsley with 11 minutes to go.

RAISING THE GAME: CONCACAF, the confederation for the North American, Central American and Caribbean region, this week announced its strategy for women's soccer. Considering the calibre of talented footballers who would be playing this year, then, one would rightly say that the tournament is going to be survival of the fittest.

"The team that plays against Scotland, hand on heart, probably won't be the team that plays against Argentina or Japan because we have a certain way of playing and a philosophy and to do that we need certain players in certain positions". Parris, in her first World Cup, is the team's prankster, putting salt in manager Neville's tea, and she comes into this competition in a rich spell of form.

England had the ball in Scotland's net again early in the second half, but Mead's strike was another effort disallowed for offside.

England 2-0 up and in complete control at half-time.

There will be fewer English supporters in the stadium this time, though, with Federation Internationale de Football Association confirming to AFP that, as of Saturday evening, 15,550 tickets had been sold for Sunday's game at a venue which holds more than twice that number. "This club is all about high standards, this is the expectation here, to win trophies". Scotland has looked risky of late and is hoping to surprise the No. 2-ranked team in the world after going unbeaten in five matches-which includes a 1-0 friendly win over Brazil.

Oil slumps 4% on U.S. inventory build, equity rally caps losses
Meanwhile, weekly US oil production ticked up to an all-time high 12.4 million bpd, according to a preliminary reading from EIA. Both Brent and USA crude are in bear-market territory, having lost more than 20% from peaks reached in late April.

Neville is by no means underestimating Kerr's team, telling the media he believes that they can go far this summer.

They are hoping to get off to a winning start as they take on the Chinese in Group B in Rennes at 1300 GMT on Saturday.

Darke believes this eighth edition of the World Cup will be the hardest to call yet, but USWNT should have enough to defend the title. Who won the last female World Cup?

The right-sided pairing of Bronze and Parris worked wonders, White showed why she was picked over Taylor, and Jill Scott and Keira Walsh helped dominate the midfield.

"I'm still learning a lot in every role I play in this team".

And when Neville had to make changes, with Scotland applying heavy pressure, they were the right ones.

Fran Kirby's cross struck Nicola Docherty on the arm and, after Czech referee Jana Adamkova watched footage back and pointed to the spot, Parris fired in from 12 yards.
