Their 2019 Women’s World Cup journey has been an inspirational one for millions of viewers watching back home, but England striker Ellen White says there will be “huge disappointment” if the Lionesses do not finish third in France. Sweden coach Peter Gerhardsson is similarly focused about the game, telling reporters: “Ending up third of course feels a lot better than ending up fourth. We’ll do everything in our power to try to do that.”

As well as signing off from the tournament, the game will also provide one last appearance at this level for a number of players, with England and Chelsea midfielder Karen Carney revealing she will retire from international football following today’s match.
