England’s women come off the back of some excellent form. They haven’t lost in 12 matches and are unbeaten in their last eight home games – which will give them a fantastic confidence boost going into this fixture. To add to this, they’ve scored a remarkable 21 goals in as little as four games – slightly different to their male counterparts with Gareth Southgate’s men struggling to find the back of the net at the moment.
Their opponents, the Netherlands, also come off the back of good form. They destroyed Cyprus in their last fixture – coming away as 12-0 victors. Judging off recent form, this game should be an absolute cracker and we should see the net bulge a couple of times at least.
So with this, let’s take a look at everything you need to know for the fixture of England Women vs Netherlands Women.
