England Women Aim To Hit Summit

Phil Neville's England will look to move to the top of their World Cup qualifying group on Tuesday afternoon.

Frustrated by Wales on Friday evening, in a goalless draw at Southampton, England are currently a point behind the Welsh but with the trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina being their game in hand.

The reverse fixture in November ended in a comfortable 4-0 win for England at the Bescot Stadium in Walsall but they will be without Chelsea forward Fran Kirby and Manchester City defender Demi Stokes for the trip.

Arsenal's Beth Mead made a late substitute appearance against Wales and could be handed a full debut in Bosnia.

She told the FA website: "I was very, very, happy to be given the chance by Phil but it was a disappointing [result]. It was one of those games. Frustrating. We wanted the three points.

 

“I’m just happy to be in the squad at the moment and to get on was unbelievable for me and my debut will be a moment I cherish, obviously."
