Wales relishing England showdown at St Mary's

By SFC Media time Mon 02 Apr England vs Wales

Wales forward Natasha Harding is anticipating a big occasion and a spectacle to remember in Friday night’s clash with England, at St Mary’s.

The two nations will go head-to-head in a FIFA 2019 World Cup qualifier in front of a large south coast crowd, with kick-off set for 7pm BST.

Wales head into the game top of Group 1, with ten points from four games, with Phil Neville’s Lionesses second, having claimed maximum points from their three matches to date.

“It’s massive and I think that whenever you mention England versus Wales in any sport, it’s always a big occasion and there’s always a bit of a fanfare,” said Harding.

“I think the ones that are a bit less experienced in the game will probably enjoy it and the things around it, the media attention that everyone will have.

“Hopefully it will be a good spectacle for everyone involved.

“I think we’ve all taken a picture of the group at the minute because we’re top! Whether we stay there or not, I don’t know.

“We’ve worked really hard and we’ve come to a point in our group with Wales that if we can win, no matter how we perform, it just shows the character that we’ve built.”
