moment. knocked us out of the world cup in1998 as moment. knocked us out of the world cup in 1998 as well. outstanding history between both sets of countries, but when we looked at the group, we saw the rivalry of scotla nd group, we saw the rivalry of scotland and argentina, and what you have got with this game is the football history rivalry. and i think that is what we have to handle tomorrow, a country unbelievably proud. when you look at the reaction of those players, when they got their first world cup point, against japan, special they got their first world cup point, againstjapan, special moment for their country. you look at that, they give their kids 90 minutes off school to watch that game against japan, that is what it means to that country. they are going to show the same kind of fight that you expect from any argentinian game, they have quality and a little number ten who isa quality and a little number ten who is a fantastic little player, which most argentinian teams of the last 20 years have had, i special number
6:37 pm
ten. massive similarities. if you watch them play, they play like south american teams. when the draw was made, the scotland argentina games were games where you was made, the scotland argentina games were games where you thought they have to handle the occasion as well as the game, handle the rivalry, the emotion, both scotland and argentina. this is another game where we will have to handle that kind of emotion. england manager phil neville, and after defeat to his england side, scotla nd after defeat to his england side, scotland will be desperate for all three points tomorrow, but they will be taking on a side, also hoping for their first be taking on a side, also hoping for theirfirst win in be taking on a side, also hoping for their first win in the tournament, up their first win in the tournament, up against the 2015 runners—up, japan. 30,000 capacity stadium where japan will play scotland tomorrow afternoon, the head coach hasjust finished speaking to the media, ahead of the match, and she has said that she and her coaching staff had watched japan play argentina in the 0-0 watched japan play argentina in the 0—0 draw. japan did not play terribly well but surely care said

that the team that came runners—up in the last world cup and which won it in 2011 must not be underestimated. japan are a very technical side and will be extremely well organised for tomorrow afternoon's match. surely care work for a japanese company in livingston for a japanese company in livingston for 17 years, so i asked her whether she felt she had an understanding of the japanese mentality. the value is installed, disciplined, organised. that is what we have tried to instill in ourteam, that is what we have tried to instill in our team, i have that is what we have tried to instill in ourteam, i have been that is what we have tried to instill in our team, i have been a huge admirerof instill in our team, i have been a huge admirer of the japanese team for many years. world cup winners, runners—up, you know, they are a formidable team and that should not be lost here, just because they drew against argentina. the values, you can see that carries the pitch, that is why they are so organised and structured on the pitch. not quite so warm here, 28 degrees during the

6:45 pm
tournament to be lost to rain, the previous record was just two, persistent rain in nottingham prevented the captain is even getting out for the task, if every cloud has a silver lining, both teams remain unbeaten, new zealand top the table and india are third. england are due to take on the west indies, it looks to be one of the most attractive fixtures in the tournament so far. sports correspondentjoe wilson has more. stop me if you've heard this one before, rain disrupted events here at hampshire today, unfortunately, you cannot play a cricket match indoors, not in the world cup, but you can practice there are, that is where england went today. the relief is thatjos buttler is fit, and ready to fulfil all the roles that england will need from him in this game against the west indies, there isa game against the west indies, there is a concern about mark wood, not for the first time, we saw him bat in the nets today but he has ankle soreness, therefore, very unlikely england would pick him for the game
6:46 pm
u nless england would pick him for the game unless they felt sure that he could bowl at his fastest, which will make england even more relieved that they can turn to archer, a young man, who grew up in the caribbean, and followed his dream to play in and for england. eion morgan, born and bred in ireland, has a similar experience of coming up against his country of birth. —— jofra archer. being in that position myself, it feels different the first time that you play against a side that you could play for or play against. i'm sure that he will handle it as he has done everything else in the tournament. do you think the opportunity is more likely to inspire him, you have worked with him in an england contact. every challenge he has come up against, he has come out the other side of it really well. so, let'sjust see how it goes. we are not expecting anything majorly different. jofra
6:47 pm
archer grew up in barbados, as did jason holder, the west indies captain. with any of your players be especially keen to be hitting boundaries against jofra archer? interesting question, i think, well, it is something that has been talked up it is something that has been talked up in the press and the media and we are looking forward to the challenge, but i don't want to limit it to jofra archer challenge, but i don't want to limit it tojofra archerjust. challenge, but i don't want to limit it to jofra archerjust. when asked today, whether he would get into the west indies side, he simply replied, he's english. it is a group of talented fast bowlers, jason holder confirmed today that sheldon cotterell will keep on saluting. england's women are also taking on the west indies, and rain delay, it means that there are a match is 39 overs a side, england batting, amy jones made an impressive 80, sarah
6:48 pm
taylor, adding 70, england look to build an imposing total, 220—4 in the 37th over, already leading 2—0 in the three match series. not often on sportsday that we get to talk to an undisputed boxing champion of the world. luckily, we got to speak to ireland's katie taylor earlier. she's celebrating after a narrow points decision over belgium's delphine persoon at madison square gardens. i asked her how it felt to achieve this huge career landmark. it's absolutely fantastic, since i turned professionaljust less than three years ago this is something i dreamt of, this is the ultimate goal, this is the pinnacle of boxing, it is so great to have all five belts. dream come true. strange reaction at the end of the fight, you took herher wbc title but some felt that she won the fight, what did you make of it, have you watched
6:49 pm
it back? i have not, the final bell, my coach, my manager, brian peters, they reassured me that they thought that i had done enough in the early rounds to win the fight. it was very close and i knew going into it, it was going to be the hardest in my career. i needed to dig deep. that is exactly how a fight goes, i dug deep, i felt i was a deserving winner. is this a sign of how big women's boxing can be, the attention that was shown to your fight, especially that in madison square garden. absolutely extraordinary, when i first started boxing, ten, 11 years old, women's boxing wasn't even allowed at the time, professional, now to see all the boxes at home and in the uk, it is so full of women's boxing, that is a satisfying part of this journey. what sort of reaction do you get
6:50 pm
backin what sort of reaction do you get back in ireland, can you walk down the street, are you getting mobbed? i try to live a quiet life, but the support i get from home, that has been tremendous, especially since the fight last week, definitely has been hard to walk down the street. i'm definitely in a great position, being the champion. yeah, i am not complaining about it at all. congratulations to her. back to australia against brazil at the women's world cup, scintillating match so far, brazil putting on the pressure, late chance for them, already into time added on, five minutes of that in that game. brazil 2-0 minutes of that in that game. brazil 2—0 up at the start of the game, now they trail 3—2 as you can see, possible penalty, with vi are, we will not wait for the check but it has played a big part in the game so far. australia —— var. could have had one of their own, brazil got one of their own, mata scored it, fifth goal ina of their own, mata scored it, fifth goal in a separate world cup.
