England will reportedly face Canada in another friendly when they get to Australia, but that is set to be behind closed doors, so this is the last chance for fans to see the Lionesses before their World Cup opener against Haiti on July 22nd. Sarina Wiegman’s side are second favourites to win the World Cup, behind the United States, and have tasted success in the past year with wins at Euro 2022 and in the first ever Women’s Finalissima.

The penalty-shootout victory over Brazil in the Finalissima was England’s 30th game unbeaten since Wiegman took charge, but they did taste defeat for the first time in their very next game, losing to World Cup co-hosts Australia. Wiegman has already named her final 23-player squad for World Cup but a couple of players aren’t expected to be involved in this friendly due to injury, including Millie Bright.

Portugal are also preparing for the World Cup, but they are making their debut in the tournament, having only recently upped their quality to qualify for the past two European Championships. Their qualification for the World Cup came as part of an eight-game winning run following the end of Euro 2022, including the 2-1 victory over Cameron in the inter-confederation play-off.

However, since beating Cameroon, Portugal have lost to Japan and drawn with Wales – so they’ll be hoping something has switched since the April international break. Portugal have also named their final World Cup squad, with all 23 players available for this friendly.

England Women vs Portugal Women match stats

England struggled in front of goal in the April international break, but they have three strikers all looking to fight for their spot as No.9 for the World Cup, which can only be a good thing. Rachel Daly ended the WSL season with the Golden Boot, while Bethany England scored 12 goals in 12 games after joining Tottenham in January, earning her a recall. And Alessia Russo, who recently left Manchester United, scored 10 WSL goals and has been Wiegman’s first-choice striker since Ellen White retired.

And when England are on form in attack, they know how to turn it on. In Wiegman’s 31 games in charge, the Lionesses have won by at least three goals on 17 occasions, including a 4-0 win over South Korea and 6-1 victory against Belgium this year.
