Jodie Taylor jogged a few memories with a criticism deflecting counter-attacking goal as England guaranteed themselves a place in the knockout stages of the World Cup on a clear Normandy night when Argentina again confounded the supposed experts.
Carlos Borrello’s side had been depicted as utterly hopeless and potentially the tournament’s weakest nation but, admittedly thanks partly to some atrocious time wasting and cynical fouling, they were well on course to embarrass Phil Neville’s Lionesses before Taylor’s first international goal for 14 months changed the narrative.
