England conclude their World Cup qualifying campaign on Tuesday evening as they welcome Luxembourg to the Bet365 Stadium.

Playing their first match as European champions, the Lionesses beat Austria 2-0 last time out to confirm their World Cup spot ahead of next summer’s tournament.

England can wrap up qualifying with a 100% record and without conceding a goal should they navigate their way past a Luxembourg side they hit double figures against last time out.

When is kick off? Tuesday 6 September, 19:30 (BST)
Where is the match being played? Bet365 Stadium, Stoke
TV channel/livestream? ITV (UK)
What time does coverage start? 19:00 (BST)

Having already secured World Cup qualification with victory over Austria last time out, Sarina Wiegman hinted that changes could be made to her traditionally consistent starting XI.

This could mean minutes for new call ups Lauren James and Ebony Salmon, while Jordan Nobbs could make her first Lionesses appearance since being ruled out of Euro 2022 through injury.

Keira Walsh will earn her 50th England cap if she features on Tuesday evening.

England (4-3-3): Earps; Carter, Greenwood, Williamson, Daly; Walsh, Stanway, Nobbs; Parris, Salmon, Hemp.

England’s second game of the Sarina Wiegman era saw them take on Luxembourg and run out emphatic 10-0 winners – defenders Millie Bright and Alex Greenwood both grabbed a brace.

There is a huge gulf between the two sides, and even with nothing but pride at stake, a very comfortable England victory is the most likely outcome.

Prediction: England 9-0 Luxembourg
