England Women continue their preparations for this summer’s European Championship in their own country with a rigorous test against the Netherlands at Elland Road.

Sarina Wiegman has a perfect record in her 12 games as Lionesses leader, including a 20-0 destruction of Lativa and a 10-0 hammering of North Macedonia.

Although she now faces the country for which she played and coached 104 times to Euro 2017 victory, in what is by far the most difficult task of her English government.

“It’s a very special match, of course because I’m from the Netherlands and have worked with that team for years,” said Wiegman.

“Now I work for England, so it’s a very special match for me and it’s nice to see the (Dutch) team again. In the end, it’s just a game, but it’s a special game.”

After facing off with the Netherlands, England will face Switzerland next week before kicking off their Euro campaign against Austria on July 6.

England vs Dutch team news

England is without Ellen White after the striker tested positive for Covid and had to leave the camp. It is uncertain if she will test negative and recover in time to play a part in the final warm-up game on June 30.

Jess Carter is believed to be fully fit after her injury concerns, meaning Wiegman will have the other 22 players in her European Championship roster available to compete against the Netherlands.

For the visitors, former Arsenal start Danielle van de Donk will be happy to have the chance to prove her fitness. The Lyon midfielder missed seven months of the season with a foot tendon injury, leaving her only to return from the bench in the final game of the season.

Elsewhere, Arsenal’s Vivianne Miedema has scored 92 goals in 108 appearances for her country and will be a real test for the Lionesses’ defense if she starts as expected.

England squad for European Championship 2022:

goalkeepers: Mary Earps (Manchester United), Hannah Hampton (Aston Villa), Ellie Roebuck (Manchester City)

Defenders: Millie Bright (Chelsea), Lucy Bronze (Barcelona), Jess Carter (Chelsea), Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Alex Greenwood (Manchester City), Demi Stokes (Manchester City), Lotte Wubben-Moy (Arsenal)

England vs Netherlands Prediction

This is a real step forward for the Lionesses and will be a useful indication of where they are heading as a team towards this summer’s European Championship.

Wiegman, who has won every game since he took charge of England, will know better than anyone the threats the visitors possess and the Lionesses themselves will be dulled by White’s absence.

It seems to be a high quality meeting, with possibly nothing to separate the two sides.

Draw, 1-1.
