England v Kazakhstan
  • 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup
  • Group 1 qualifier
  • 7.05pm GMT, Tuesday 28 November
  • at Colchester United FC
  • Live on BBC Two
England have a perfect record in Group 1 qualifying so far, with two wins out of two.

They beat Russia 6-0 in September and then Bosnia & Herzegovina 4-0 in front of a sold-out stadium in Walsall on Friday [24 November].

Captain Steph Houghton, who scored a brace against Bosnia, said: “To play in two sold-out stadiums in a row means so much to the team and shows what fantastic supporters we have.

“The fact that 20,000 people will come and watch us play over a weekend shows just how far the women’s game has come. We’ve always said we want to inspire the next generation – whether that’s to play or watch football.

 

“We’re determined to make it three wins out of three and put on a good performance for everyone on Tuesday.”

After Kazakhstan, the Lionesses’ next qualifier is against Wales at Southampton’s St. Mary’s Stadium on Friday 6 April 2018 (7pm KO).
