In the week where they marched on towards qualification for the 2023 World Cup, beating Northern Ireland 4-0 at Wembley and then scoring ten goals in Latvia, England Women's attention then turned towards next summer's European Championships on home soil when the draw for the finals was made on Thursday.

Both Northern Ireland and Austria, both in England's current World Cup group, have been drawn alongside the Three Lions in Group A for the 2022 tournament with Norway making up the quartet.

Old Trafford will host England's opener with Austria on 6 July before games against Norway in Brighton on 11 July and Northern Ireland in Southampton on the 15th.

Defender Lucy Bronze told BBC Sport: "We've developed a lot, certainly since I've been involved. We've reached semi-finals of Euros, of World Cups. 

"This team now has that experience of getting a little bit further - we just need that little push to get to the end."

Tickets are available from the FA Ticketing page for the November qualifiers at home to Austria at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland, on Saturday 27th and Latvia at Doncaster's Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday 30th.
