Next Saturday sees England take on Northern Ireland at Wembley Stadium in a qualifier for the 2023 World Cup.

Two comfortable wins in September marked the start of the Sarina Wiegman reign but the Lionesses should face a tougher test against a Northern Irish side who were surprise qualifiers for next summer's European Championship.

Wiegman has named a 24-player squad for the Wembley game and the trip to Latvia three days later, a number of the younger players who made an impact against North Macedonia and Luxembourg keeping their place.

"The prospect of playing in front of thousands of fans at our national stadium will be a special moment," said Wiegman.

Tickets for the 5:15pm kick-off are available from the FA Ticketing page and also 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.
