England take on Norway tonight in what is expected to be the Lionesses’ toughest test yet Euro 2022 and determine who will pass as the winner of Group A.
Sarina Wiegman’s side made a winning start to their home tournament, beating Austria 1-0 in front of a record crowd of 68,871 at Old Trafford last Wednesday.
Beth Mead scored the game’s only goal and England will need to improve if they are to overcome Norway, who started with a 4-1 thrashing of Northern Ireland.
Norway have a squad full of talent, including first-time Ballon D’Or winner Ada Hegerberg, Barcelona’s Caroline Graham Hansen and Chelsea’s Guro Reiten.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of tonight’s game.
When is England vs Norway?
The match kicks off at 8:00 p.m. BST on Monday, July 11. It will be held at the Amex Stadium in Brighton.
How can I watch it?
It will be shown live on BBC One, with coverage starting at 7.35pm. It will also be available to stream live on the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website.
What’s up with the team?
Faced with Norway’s attacking talent, Sarina Wiegman could decide to bring Leah Williamson back into midfield and re-establish the defensive partnership of Millie Bright and Alex Greenwood. Beth Mead will probably keep her place but Alessia Russo could replace Ellen White and lead the England attack.
England: Earps; Bronze, Brilliant, Greenwood, Daly; Walsh, Williamson; Mead, Kirby, Hemp; Russian
Norway: Pettersen; Sonstevold, Mjelde, Thorisdottir, Blakstad; Maanum, Engen; Eikeland, Graham Hansen, Reiten; Hegerberg
