Wiegman: We don't have to know best England XI yet

England head coach Sarina Wiegman has admitted she does not know her best starting XI five months out from the start of the Women's World Cup in July, but is "excited" by the prospect of so many players competing for places in the squad.

Wiegman made nine changes to her starting selection against Italy on Sunday - with only Alex Greenwood and Jess Carter keeping their places from a convincing victory over Korea Republic three days prior - while Katie Robinson made her first international start.

The Lionesses boss, who remains unbeaten in 28 games as manager, says the depth in the squad is "growing" as a result of emerging young talent and has warned of more changes ahead of Thursday's concluding Arnold Clark Cup fixture against Belgium in Bristol.

England are tied on points with their European counterparts in the round-robin competition's table, with Belgium also securing two wins from two games played - the outcome, therefore, will decide who lifts the Arnold Clark Cup trophy at Ashton Gate on Thursday evening.
