Mark Sampson’s squad have a place in the last 16 within their grasp after bouncing back from a narrow loss to France by registering a 2-1 win over Mexico on Saturday.

The Lionesses are second in Group F just a point behind Colombia. The top two in each of the six groups are guaranteed to progress to the knockout stages, while the four best third-placed teams will also advance.

Sampson said: "We still have areas to improve but we have laid some good foundations - defensively against France and how we attacked against Mexico.

"Now it’s about bringing all those good aspects together and taking that to Colombia."

England boarded flight AC 7525 from Moncton on Sunday afternoon and were greeted at the airport by a large number of Three Lions fans.

They will train in Montreal, the second-largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, for the first time on Monday evening.

Wednesday’s decider will take place at the Olympic Stadium (9pm BST kick-off).
