It's here, it's almost time for lift-off. England face Spain in the Women's World Cup final 2023 and Sarina Wiegman has made a big selection call.


Lauren James returns to the Lionesses squad but Ella Toone has retained her place in an unchanged starting XI. James is likely to come off the bench at some stage, however.

The nation has come to a standstill as the Lionesses roar into one last duel Down Under in a bid to claim the grand prize.

Sarina Wiegman's England have marched through the rounds in impressively pragmatic fashion, without truly hitting top gear, in the absence of several superstars through injury prior to the tournament.

England won all three of their group stage encounters before seeing off Nigeria in a penalty shoot-out in the Round of 16, the closest they have come to being eliminated from the competition.

They toppled Colombia and Australia in tight encounters to set up this clash against Spain, who have looked equally efficient throughout the knockout stages.

Spain were hammered 4-0 by Japan in the group stages to finish second, but fired five past Switzerland, before recording impressive victories over Netherlands and Sweden to reach the final. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Spain v England on TV and online.
