England have the chance to seek revenge for their only loss under Sarina Wiegman after the Matildas secured a 2-0 win in a friendly in April to end their 30-game unbeaten run.

But Australia have looked vulnerable on home soil, losing 3-2 to Nigeria in the group stages before edging past France on penalties following a goalless stalemate last time out.

Spain will await in the winners of this clash after they beat Sweden 2-1 to reach their first final.
