    Spain sticking with defensive unit

    Spain are more settled selection-wise in defence.

    Barcelona duo Mapi León and Irene Paredes have been crucial figures in the centre.

    Jorge Valda will be looking to try and pass the ball through the English high-press.

    Business end of the tournament

    With the group stages over, any mistakes can mean you exiting the competition far earlier than you planned.

    Boss ready for the challenge ahead

    Sarina Wiegman spoke about how her squad have prepared for this evening:

    We know our plan, we know our strengths, we know our opponents very well but we also know there are more favourites to beat so what we are focussing on now is that we have a game against Spain.

    We did well in the group stage but we haven’t won anything yet and we are just focussed on the next game.

    Spain are a very good team and we are a very good team too and we want to play the best game we can and hopefully it will bring us the win.

    Boost in confidence for Lionesses

    Hearing the news that their manager, Sarina Wiegman, is going to be on the touchline this evening only hours before kick-off will help the England players hugely.

    They will go into this game with huge confidence knowing they are at full-strength in all areas.

    Wiegman needs to set her side out against a team who do like to have lots of possession as do her England side.

    Welcome to England vs Spain

    The big news for England is that manager, Sarina Wiegman, will return to the touchline for the Lionesses’ quarter-final match with Spain at the Amex Stadium after missing Friday’s 5-0 Group A win over Northern Ireland as she recovered from a bout of covid.

    Spain are expected to name an unchanged back-four with Irene Paredes continuing her centre-back partnership with Barcelona teammate Mapi Leon.

    Jorge Vilda could be tempted to give Cardona her first start of the tournament after the Real Madrid player came off the bench to score the late winner against Denmark.

    Esther Gonzalez may force her way into the starting line-up after some impressive performances from the bench.

    With a 100% record in the group stages, Wiegman is expected to name an unchanged side for the fourth consecutive game.

    After scoring five goals, including a hat-trick against Norway, Beth Mead is the current topscorer and she will be aiming to continue her form from the group stages against Spain this evening.

    Fran Kirby has cemented her position at number 10, whilst Alessia Russo has come off the bench in all three group games to score three goals.
