The hardest part is over, right? England have scrambled into the Women's World Cup final, fought their way out of the group and through multiple tense knockout rounds.


Well, not exactly. The Lionesses overcame their biggest test to date against Australia in the semi-finals but the final is a whole new ball game.

Not only will Sarina Wiegman's team be forced into a duel against one of the world's elite teams, but they must cope with the rigours and pressure of doing it all on the highest, grandest stage women's football has to offer.

Of course, England will be determined to go all the way in this year's tournament given their experience at the Euros in 2022.

England will hope to carry their momentum into the final, but can expect stiff competition from a top-tier nation joining them there.
