With their World Cup qualification group proving to be notable only for how many goals they will end up with, England Women will begin their preparations for Euro 2022 in earnest in February when they host a four-team tournament.

Germany, Spain and Canada will also take place in a series of games that will give Lionesses head coach Sarina Wiegman a truer picture of her side's development, having taken over earlier this year, than scoring 20 times against Latvia.

World Cup qualifiers resume in April with trips to North Macedonia and Northern Ireland before thoughts can truly turn to the European Championships on home soil.

England get the tournament underway against Austria (who have provided the toughest test so far of the Lionesses World Cup group) at Old Trafford on 6 July before matches against Norway (Brighton, 11 July) and Northern Ireland (Southampton, 15 July).

Hopes will be high that Wiegman's side will be involved at the business end of the competition, with Wembley hosting the final on 31 July.
