The Lionesses’ Date with Destiny

England’s Lionesses are poised to make history. The World Cup Final on Sunday sees them lock horns with Spain, a momentous clash promising to be more than just a game. The stage? Stadium Australia in Sydney. The hour? 11:00 BST. For the first time since that iconic year of 1966, either of England’s teams stands at the precipice of ultimate glory.

Path to the Final
England, the European champions, carved their way to the final with a convincing 3-1 win over co-hosts Australia. Ella Toone, Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo were the names etched onto the score sheet. Positioned fourth in the Fifa rankings, the Lionesses tower two places above their Spanish adversaries who, in their own right, saw off Sweden in a nail-biting semi-final.

“The final, a first for England’s women’s or men’s teams since 1966, takes place at Stadium Australia in Sydney at 11:00 BST.”
