Wales v England

  • 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup
  • Group 1 qualifier
  • Friday 31 August
  • Rodney Parade, Newport

Phil Neville’s side are second in the table, one point behind Wales but with a game in hand.

The group winners will make it through to next summer’s finals with the runners-up likely to enter two rounds of play-off matches.

England need at least a point in Newport to keep alive their hopes of qualifying automatically but a home win would see Jayne Ludlow’s team clinch the group.

The Lionesses’ final qualifier is away to Kazakhstan on Tuesday 4 September.

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals will be hosted in France from 7 June to 7 July.
