England begin their Women’s World Cup campaign against Haiti as the Lionesses look to follow up last summer’s Euros triumph with another major tournament victory.

Sarina Wiegman’s side come into the World Cup as one of the favourites, despite losing stars Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Fran Kirby to injury, and are expected to get off to a winning start in Group D against debutants Haiti.

With Williamson out, her centre-back partner Millie Bright will captain the side in Australia and the Lionesses have been boosted by the news that their stand-in skipper is fit to start. Haiti, who are ranked 53rd in the world, are joined by China and Denmark in Group D.

England’s build-up to the World Cup has come amid a row with the Football Association over bonus payments and other commercial concerns, but the players have agreed to pause discussions during the tournament.

NO PENALTY! Women’s World Cup 2023: Zambia 0-1 Japan

Let off for Zambia again! Fujino was offside when the ball through was played, so Musonda gets away with it!

Japan should really be four or five goals up by now, but Zambia are still in it.

Women’s World Cup 2023: Zambia 0-0 Japan

Catherine Musonda is having a brilliant game in the Zambia goal. She makes another fine stop to deny a long-range effort from Fuka Nagano.

Barbra Banda gets her first chance to break into the Japan box, but her touch lets her down and the ball runs out of play.
