Did you know?

England came through the group stage with the best record but in the quarter-final their opponents are a France side they have not beaten since 1974.

@Lionesses @Jodes_14 talks us through her favourite goal so far at #WEURO2017...

Third-time lucky at #WEURO2017 for twice runners-up England?

Former Manchester City and now Barcelona ace, Toni Duggan says there has never been a better time to face France:

'We know that will be a tough test but one I believe we are ready for.

"France are one of the best teams in Europe and one of the best teams in the world - but so are we.

'We are on fire at the minute and feeling very confident, as you can see in our performances.

'We're ready for the game. If ever there was a time to play France it's now. I think they know they're in for a tough test.'

Team news will be available closer to kick off.

Good luck England!
