Lionesses ready for Dragons

As they left Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday evening, England’s women knew their preparation was complete and the waiting almost over.

After eight wins from eight in their 2015 World Cup qualifying group, England are on the verge of another major tournament and will book their place in Canada if they avoid defeat against Wales on Thursday evening.

Our cameras were granted inside access to Mark Sampson and his team’s final training session as the players got a feel for the pitch, the stadium – and worked on some fine-tuning in preparation for what their manager describes as their “toughest qualification test yet”.

England fans wishing to attend can buy their tickets at the stadium at the ticket booth located between gates three and four.

They should request the away end in blocks 202 and 203.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £2 for concessions. 

It will also be broadcast live on BBC3 with coverage starting at 7pm.
