Sunderland has a strong connection with the squad as midfielder Jill Scott is from the city, while defender Lucy Bronze and goalscorer Beth Mead have both previously played for Sunderland AFC Ladies.

Penshaw Monument will be among the Sunderland landmarks lit up red and white in a show of support for the Lionesses.

Leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Graeme Miller, said: "They're helping raise the profile of women's football, and are winning and gaining support and admiration from fans across the country and the world. And they're showing a great team spirit and scoring great goals too.

"They're unbeaten since last September and let's all wish them the very best for the final - Ha'way the Lionesses."
