Women's Euro 2022: England v Austria| How To Watch| Catch Up With Chelsea Stars

England are at Old Trafford this evening facing Austria for the first game of the Women's UEFA Euros 2022. 

After three impressive victories in their friendly warm-up games, the lionesses will be confident they can get off to a winning start in the country's second ever home tournament.

Chelsea defender Millie Bright, who displayed sheer dominance across each preparation match, is an all but confirmed name in the starting line-up and would provide a calm presence in this opening fixture. 

Forward Fran Kirby could also make the first XI as the Blues most prolific attacker but, England do boast a lot of power in attack in the likes of Manchester City's Ellen White and Lauren Hemp, as well as Arsenal's Nikita Parris.

Bethany England and Jess Carter make up the fab four from Chelsea and whilst they are likely to start from the bench, head coach Sarina Wiegman has been partial to brining the pair on later in the game.
