England Women vs South Korea Women Tips
England, quite remarkably, still haven't lost a single game under the tutelage of manager Sarina Wiegman.
26 games. 22 wins. 4 draws. 0 defeats. 125 goals scored and just 7 conceded.
In the process, England have beaten some of the best countries on the planet, including the United States, Germany, and Spain, oh, and they won the Euros too.
Wiegman's side head into Thursday's game as the short-priced 1/4 favourites for the win, although there does appear to be a sprinkling of value on the 6/5 on offer with Betfair for the hosts to nil, a bet which has landed a whopping 18 times during Wiegman's tenure to date.
On paper, South Korea's record is good, losing just twice in 14 matches. However, with the utmost respect they've faced the likes of Chinese Taipei, Jamaica, Vietnam, and the Philippines during that run.
While England certainly won't underestimate a country that beat Australia last year, in truth, this should be a comfortable win for an incredibly talented side brimming with confidence off the back of a 26-game unbeaten run.
England will be without star player Beth Mead. However, there's still an abundance of attacking talent for Wiegman to choose from.
Lauren Hemp, Chloe Kelly, Ella Toone, Fran Kirby, and Alessia Russo are all expected to feature and it's the latter, Russo, who we're backing to hit the back of the net at 6/5 with Paddy Power.
The Man Utd striker, who has five goals in 11 WSL games this season, should be confident of adding to her international tally of 10 England goals on Thursday, six of which have been netted in her last nine international games.
The 24-year-old can also be backed at 4/1 to open the scoring against South Korea.
