England host Brazil in a women’s friendly clash at the Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough this week.


The Lionesses have no need to qualify for Euro 2021 due to hosting the competition, allowing them a chance to experiment against top opposition.

However, life hasn’t been plain sailing for Phil Neville’s squad since their 2-1 defeat to the USWNT in the World Cup semi-finals.

England lost the third-place game against Sweden before drawing 3-3 with Belgium and losing 2-1 to Norway in following friendlies.

While Neville is taking the friendlies as chances to rotate his team and blood in new stars, he will still hope to triumph in every match.

In the opposing camp, sensational 2017/18 form by Brazil has now given way to a horror run that has seen them lose 12 out of their last 15 matches.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…

England are in a testing period, a time of recovering from their World Cup defeat and assessing how to prepare to win the home tournament in two years time.

The Lionesses’ last seven goals have all come from different scorers, a plus for Neville, but he will be concerned by his team’s lack of defensive stability.

England should have enough to triumph here, but it won’t be an easy ride.
