Sarina Wiegman leads her England Women team out on Tuesday evening to face her own home nation, with the Lionesses facing Netherlands in their second Women’s Nations League fixture.

Last time out as the competition got underway for the first time in the women’s game, England triumphed over Scotland but it was hard work indeed – while Netherlands suffered a late defeat at the hands of their own near neighbours, Belgium. All four nations are in Group A1.

There’s not just relegation and the finals at stake either; a couple of berths at the 2024 Olympics in Paris are also on the line, for the two countries who reach the Nations League final. Top spot in the group, then, is of massive importance to those with medal ambitions – potentially including Team GB.

22’ – Netherlands 0-0 England

Jill Roord drives forward from midfield and strikes one at goal from 20 yards – the Man City player doesn’t quite catch it right and although Earps fumbles the stop, it’s a routine one and easily recoverable at the second attempt.

Another WSL player, Pelova, then winds infield and curls straight at Earps with her left foot – no big threat on goal this time but more evidence of the hosts being on the front foot.

18’ – Netherlands 0-0 England

Netherlands fairly bold in their approach play, lacking the final pass at present but certainly committing numbers into the box.

England by contrast slow to get players forward but comfortable in more probing build-up, particularly down the flanks. How much Daly and Bronze can get forward from wing-back will be crucial in their hopes of good delivery and – as shown against Scotland – offering an extra attacking threat too.

14’ – Netherlands 0-0 England

Lineth Beerensteyn goes racing through the centre looking to get on the end of one of those long balls, but can’t reach this one. Mary Earps out to the edge of her area to claim it.

Van de Donk has a bit of a shout at the ref after she feels she’s fouled but the Dutch still have it and it’s play on.

Russo leads an England counter, but there’s nobody with her and the Lionesses are patient, going back to go forward again.

10’ – Netherlands 0-0 England

Russo gets down the left flank for the first time and delivers a deep cross but England can’t get bodies forward to make the most of it. Netherlands happy to soak up a bit of pressure and then go direct when they need to.

6’- Netherlands 0-0 England

Plenty of pressure on that Lionesses back three in the opening stages. Stanway having to get through plenty of work to protect them and try to start play from deep for England.

2’- Netherlands 0-0 England

Underway and England struggling to keep possession in the opening stages. Netherlands are likely to be on the offensive after defeat last time out – they need a response.
