The first of the 3 warm up games start tonight on ITV4. No real surprises in the squad with Houghton missing out through lack of fitness.  
 

Team for tonight against Belgium 

England XI: Earps, Bronze, Stokes, Walsh, Bright, Wubben-Moy, Mead, Williamson, White, Stanway, Hemp.

Subs: Daly, Hampton, Kirby, Toone, Parris, Kelly, Greenwood, England, Scott, Roebuck, Russo, Carter.

 

Interesting to see how we do in the middle of the park.  Very good chance we go a long way In the Euros under a good manager.

The final squad of 23 was confirmed yesterday. As was somewhat expected by many, Steph Houghton was not included due to her injury (as well as being dropped as captain anyway)

Funny but needed clarification from the Lionesses' Twitter...

3-0 England. Probably another goal to come tonight. Why no VAR  when there will be in the next match at Elland Road. Surely it should be available at all 3 friendlies or not at all?

I don't know the answer, but was VAR not used at the mens game Vs Hungary two days earlier?

Very good from England.  Pretty much everyone impressed but Hemp and Williamson excellent. 

Yes and unlike their male counterparts, the England women passed to team mates!

Ed Sheeran was wearing a Lionesses shirt as part of his recent gig at Wembley. Considering the football club he supports & sponsors (as well as who is there now), this is some improvement

 

And a very clever response from LW-M.

Surprised this wasn't mentioned on here. I was at a gig in London at the time, so I didn't watch it live.
Anyway, England beat Netherlands 5-1 in a warm-up at Elland Road on Friday night. To make it confusing, the Netherlands played in their away kit with white shirts, and England played in their all orange away kit!

Final warm up for the Lionesses tonight in Switzerland and a 4-0 win after a goalless first half. This squad oozes class, if only the men were half as good. The strength off the bench is phenomenal, with two of tonight's goals coming from substitutes. But what impresses me most is that they can change their style and remain strong. Williamson played in the back 4 tonight instead of midfield as they only utilised the one pivot in Walsh, which probably suits her better. They left top scorer Ellen White on the bench and used Russo, and then Beth England at centre forward and both scored. We are very strong wide but they all offer something different. There is a world of difference between the play of Lauren Hemp and Nikita Parris in particular but both Chloe Kelly and Beth Mead are very effective too. I don't want to say that the Euros are coming home but it's going to take a very good side to beat them.

Walked into Sports Direct today, six days before a Euros tournament on home soil, and not a single England shirt or any Euros merchandise on sale.

I’m quite happy to see the women’s game develop and I think that’s really disappointing - and surprising.

There's a full range online, so it seems odd they wouldn't have anything in store :dunno:

I know its a bit late in the day to say this but the venues for the Womens Euros are bizarre.

There's no representation in the Midlands at all and nothing in the West / South West.

I completely understand that some games will draw bigger crowds than others hence the vastly different sizes of venue but the locations are either all in the North West or South East.

I actually know a lot more about this. When England made the bid a few years ago; they did approach loads of city/town councils.

Unfortunately, those in Bristol & surrounding areas did not express interest - hence why Ashton Gate isn't hosting games, for example.

It was during this time that women's football wasn't as big as it is now; so there was indeed some underestimation.
There's nothing in the North East either.

There would have been games at the City Ground in Nottingham; but they pulled out after deciding to do pitch renovations (and giving the Premier League promotion, was timed rather well) - and so got replaced by Leigh Sports Village, where Man United Women play; but is a much smaller ground
