England play their final fixture on home soil before leaving for the Women’s World Cup in Australia, taking on Portugal in Milton Keynes.
Sarina Wiegman’s European champions remain strong contenders for this summer’s tournament, but a number of injuries leave the Dutch manager with plenty to consider before beginning their campaign against Haiti on 22 July.
A 30-game unbeaten run under Wiegman came to an end in the Lionesses’ last game against Australia in April.
They host Portugal, who will be looking for a strong showing as they prepare to make their World Cup debut.
Here’s everything you need to know.

Alex Greenwood is available, though, having overcome a knock suffered in training early in the week.
Portugal boast an exeperienced group hoping to build confidence after securing a first World Cup qualification. Manager Francisco Neto is not thought to have any fresh injury concerns.
