Jodie Taylor celebrates scoring for England Women against Argentina

Neville's players struggled in the last half hour against the world No 7 nation and the manager admitted fatigue had played a part.

"But we got another clean sheet, won another game and we've played three and won three. My players have strengths and abilities but unless they can display them on the pitch we can't get good results, that's the reality", Japan coach Asako Takakura said. 'We had to bring [Nikita] Parris and [Karen] Carney on [from the bench].

The VAR deemed Alexander to have come off her line - just like Nigeria's keeper did earlier in the week, allowing France to score a victor that gave the Ferns the first result they needed - and Bonsegundo made no mistake with her second effort.

But Neville insisted that England - who do not know their round of 16 opponents until later on Thursday - would continue to play their passing game. But the style is non-negotiable. We place a big emphasis on winning as we like to play in a certain style.

'We didn't have the control we wanted.

But Neville is determined that rotating his team is the best way forward, saying: "We picked our strongest team to play against Japan".

Argentina's equaliser came from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of stoppage time - but only after the video assistant referee ordered a retake when Florencia Bonsegundo's initial attempt was saved by Scotland keeper Lee Alexander.

I would have thought probably in the next couple of games there will be opportunities for those as well.

Matchwinner Ellen White joked she was "pretty angry" to have been rested against Argentina. When we named the team she looked a bit surprised and nervous so we said pretend you're in the park, playing with your friends.
