A month after their agonising defeat in the World Cup final, the Lionesses are back in action as they kick off their inaugural Nations League campaign against Scotland at the Stadium of Light.


England are the heavy favourites to bag all three points in the Group A1 opener as they sit 19 places higher than their neighbours in the FIFA world rankings, although the Scots make the short trip south on a four-game winning streak.

Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman has named a strong squad for this international break with the bulk of the World Cup squad returning, although Ballon d'Or runner-up Beth Mead remains unavailable.

It promises to be a red-hot affair as this is the first meeting between the two countries in more than four years. England got the better of Scotland with a 2-1 victory at that year's World Cup.

There is more Nations League action next week, with England travelling to Utrecht to face the Netherlands on Tuesday and Scotland hosting Belgium at Hampden Park on the same evening.
