In their last meeting, the Lionesses earned a 6-0 home win against Russia last year and will be confident heading into the return fixture.

Phil Neville said on TheFA.com: “This is a great opportunity to take a giant step towards our goal of making it to the finals in France next year.

“We know from recent experience that teams are wary of our attacking threat and we expect Russia to be no different.

“We will have to be ruthless when opportunities come our way, but it is important we remain patient, focused and calm until they do.

“Everyone is in positive mood about the challenge ahead and wants to end the season on a high.

“We had a number of players at St. George’s Park earlier this week for some extra training, and it was good to get a look at some of the younger players who are pushing hard for inclusion in the senior squad.

“We already have a youthful feel but I won’t be afraid to give more a chance next season.”

A win against Russia would move England on to 16 points in the qualifying group, with only the group winners qualifying automatically and play-off matches being held between the top four runners-up among all seven groups.
