Ellen White is set to win her 100th England cap when the Lionesses host Austria in World Cup qualifying this afternoon.

England will be aiming to continue their perfect start to Group D, having won their opening four matches of the qualifying campaign.

Sarina Weigman’s side recorded a 4-0 win over Northern Ireland and a 10-0 victory over Latvia last month but Austria are set to be their toughest test of the group.

White is also closing in on Kelly Smith’s England goalscoring record and is two goals away from equalling her tally of 46.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match today.

When is England vs Austria?

The match will kick off at 12:30pm GMT on Saturday 27 November at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

How can I watch it?

It will be shown live on ITV 1, with coverage starting from 11:45am. The match will also be streamed online live on the ITV Hub.

What is the team news?

Jordan Nobbs has been recalled to Sarina Wiegman’s England squad but Leah Williamson has been ruled out of the games against Austria and Latvia due to a hamstring injury.

Lucy Staniforth also misses out, in what is the only other change from October’s squad, while Steph Houghton, Lucy Bronze and Ellie Roebuck remain side-lined with injuries.

In terms of tonight’s match, Ellen White is set to win her 100th England cap and could be joined in the forward line by Arsenal due Nikita Parris and Beth Mead.
