Since that win in 2022, some new players have broken through into Sarina Wiegman’s squad. These include Grace Clinton, who has impressed while at Spurs on loan from Man Utd and starts. Experience remains though, including goalkeeper Mary Earps. Leah Williamson is on the bench after a year out with injury.

The Lionesses lost to Belgium in the Nations League but have conquered all before them since then. This includes big wins over Austria and Italy in friendly matches.

The Blue and Yellow’s form is less impressive having lost to Switzerland and Spain in recent matches. Their squad contains plenty of talent though. This includes WSL stars Johanna Rytting Kaneryd (Chelsea) and Matilda Vinberg (Spurs), and Bayern Munich’s Magda Eriksson.

These teams haven’t played each other since the Euro 2022 semi-finals, when England won 4-0. The Lionesses have though never won consecutive matches against Sweden.

Here's how they line up:

England: Earps; Bronze, Wubben-Moy, Greenwood, Charles; Walsh, Stanway, Clinton; Hemp, Russo, James.

Sweden: Falk; Lundkvist, Sembrant, Eriksson, Andersson; Angeldahl, Asllani, Zigiotti Olme; Rytting Kaneryd, Blackstenius, Rolfu
