  • England are set to take on Austria in World Cup qualifying
  • Ellen White is expected to win her 100th cap for the Lionesses
  • The game WILL take place despite the weather conditions
  • Millie Bright will captain England for today’s clash

Georgia Stanway is on for England.

Bright mops up at the back and England look to build through Stokes on the left who plays it to Hemp but Austria win it back. Enjoyable second half so far.

Dunst registers another shot on England’s goal from distance but it is an easy save straight at Earps

England win a corner. Good delivery by Kirby and the home side win another corner. Kirby with it again and it is punched away. Penalty shout for a foul on Mead in the box but nothing given. She can’t believe it. Looked like a stonewall penalty.

Freekick sent in but Demi Stokes gets it away. Mead draws a foul to relieve the pressure. All Austria so far this second half.

Plattner is down and looks in some discomfort after Mead’s challenge.

CHANCE. Earps saves superbly. Austria had a three on two there . They cause England plenty of problems with the resulting corner too as Mead is forced to give away a foul

Austria enjoy some possession and win a corner, which England aren’t happy about, It is played into the box but cleared by Toone. Austria are still in this.
