The Lionesses are set to grip the nation once again when they compete in the Women's World Cup final on Sunday against Spain.

England became the first senior national side, men or women, to reach a World Cup final since 1966 after Sarina Wiegman's side beat Australia 3-1 in Sydney on Wednesday.

England fans lapped up the success across the country as the Lionesses cast aside the host nation.

And now, they are set to cheer on the women's side as England aim to follow up last summer's European Championship success at Wembley last summer.

With the game kicking off at 11am, there have been widespread calls for England's pubs to open early.

Nonetheless, hundreds of dedicated venues will be welcoming fans for the huge sporting occasion.
