England Women v France Women: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

England continue the defence of their Euros title when they host qualifying League A Group 3 opponents France on Friday.

The Lionesses drew 1-1 with Sweden and won 2-0 against the Republic of Ireland in April's opening batch of qualifiers and now face a double-header against Les Bleues, with the pair meeting again in Saint-Etienne on Tuesday.

Herve Renard's side sit top of the pool after beating both the Irish and Swedes. The top two qualify for next summer's tournament in Switzerland but this set of games could decide who goes through as top seeds.

France won the pair's most recent meeting 3-1 in 2021. However, that game in Caen was a friendly and they lost the last competitive game 4-1 when the duo clashed in the 2018 edition of the SheBelieves Cup.

The Lionesses also won 1-0 when these two faced each other in the quarter-finals of the 2017 European Championships.

Since losing on penalties to hosts Australia at last summer's World Cup, France's only defeat in 10 matches was a 2-0 reverse to Spain in the final of the Nations League. 

England missed out on the Nations League Finals but are also in decent form, currently unbeaten in six.
