Head to head

England 21 victories
Scotland wins - 1
Draws - 2

Mark Simpson, England manager

'As far as I'm concerned [Scotland] are only missing two starters - if that's an injury crisis, I'll take an injury crisis. We arrive with a fully fit group but Scotland have got some very good players - Ife Dieke at the back, Caz Weir, Jane Ross, Lisa Evans, Hayley Lauder - I tried to nick her at Bristol!

'They have a lot of talent in their team. With the talent they have got they should have been at a final tournament earlier and they will be looking to scrap with us, Spain and Portugal for the two quarter-final places.'

Anna Signeul, Scotland manager

'The first game I coached with Scotland was against England, and we should have won or drawn! [There are rivalries like this] in every sport with different countries, in Sweden we have Finland in athletics, Norway in football. It makes it more exciting.'

Good luck Lionesses!
