Although the 2017 Women’s Euro tour­na­ment started on Sun­day, to­day is the first match fea­tur­ing home na­tions, with Eng­land tak­ing on Scot­land (k-o 7.45pm) in Utrecht. Hop­ing to build on their mag­nif­i­cent run in 2015’s World Cup, when they fin­ished third, Eng­land cap­tain Steph Houghton and her team have not had much suc­cess at Euro­pean level since 2009, when they were run­ners-up, although most com­pe­ti­tions have seen Eng­land drop out in the group stage. This time, Eng­land need to be one of the top two in a group also in­clud­ing Spain and Por­tu­gal to go through to the knock­out rounds. Is this the year for the Lionesses to roar?
