“I’ve seen part of the documentary about Sunderland, about the men’s game,” Wiegman said. ‘It was very interesting and [they have] a very strong fan base. People have told me about women’s football there and how excited everyone is to go there.

“The northern part of England has had a great impact on women’s football and the development of football.”

England have won all four of their group games with Wiegman by an aggregate score of 32-0. But Austria, whom the Lionesses will face in their first Eurocup game next summer, should offer a tougher test.

“He’s a great game, he’s the best opponent we have,” Wiegman said. “I think Austria will bring more possession and we will have to defend what is more challenging.”

Wiegman will be without Leah Williamson, who has been ruled out for what Arsenal have described as a “major hamstring injury.” Williamson had replaced as captain in the absence of Steph Houghton, but Wiegman has not decided who will wear the bracelet for the next matches.
