England v Sweden – skipper Houghton’s 100th Lionesses cap

England make 11 changes from the experimental side that won in Austria on Thursday. Except for the injured Fran Kirby, the Lionesses aren’t far off full strength.

As expected, Steph Houghton starts, so she will indeed get her 100th cap this afternoon.

Sweden hand starts to a Chelsea duo, defender Magdalena Eriksson and keeper Hedvig Lindahl.

England XI: Telford, Bronze, Greenwood, Christiansen, Houghton (c), Bright, Parris, Scott, Daly, Nobbs, Mead.

Subs: Earps, Roebuck, Blundell, McManus, Williamson, George, Staniforth, Duggan, Carney, Stanway, Lawley, Ubogagu.

Sweden XI: Lindahl, Andersson, Sembrant, Eriksson, Asllani, Jakobsson, Ilestedt, Samuelsson, Seger (c), Anvegard, Rubensson.

Subs: Andersson, Musovic, Bjorn, Karlernas, Hurtig, Folkesson, Carlsson, Rolfo, Roddar, Schough, Spetsmark.
