U.S. & England's Women's Soccer Teams Up for crucial games

The English women's soccer team are wary and they know better than to take the Argentina women's soccer team lightly. Today's match between the the English & Argentinian women will be important for Team England at least because of certain conditions for qualifying for the next level of matches for the FIFA Women's world cup 2007 in China. They need to win it by 2 goals today against the Argentinian soccer players to automatically move on to the next round. If they only win it by 1 goal, it takes them to a more difficult situation of being dragged into a waiting game and worse be really dragged deeper into a judging process. The same holds true for Japan. Argentina on the other hand, is on the other end of the deal. They are all but eliminated from the competition with previous losses here in the FIFA Women's world cup.

The Americans will also be fighting for outright entry & the top spot of Group B of the competition. They are up against an improving Nigerian women's soccer team. Nigeria has lost all three games it's played against the United States by a combined score of 15-2. However, Nigeria has improved, tying Sweden 1-1 and losing 2-0 to North Korea in this tournament. The U.S. soccer team was not able able to get the luck of the draw being grouped into the tougher grouping the the tournament.
