Neville ‘working hard to find extra 5%’

BBC TV will show live coverage of England women’s friendly internationals against Belgium and Norway.

The Lionesses, who reached the World Cup semi-finals in France this summer, are travelling to Leuven on 29 August and Bergen on 3 September.

Both games will be shown live on BBC Two and on the iPlayer from 18:15 BST and 16:45 BST respectively.

England will play their first match at Wembley since the World Cup when they take on Germany on 9 November.

A record-breaking 28.1m people watched BBC coverage of the Women’s World Cup on television and online this summer.

England’s semi-final defeat by eventual champions USA attracted the highest live TV audience of 2019 so far with 11.7 million.

Manager Phil Neville has named a squad which includes four debutants for upcoming friendlies in August and September.

BBC Sport has launched #ChangeTheGame this summer to showcase female athletes in a way they never have been before. Through more live women’s sport available to watch across the BBC this summer, complemented by our journalism, we are aiming to turn up the volume on women’s sport and alter perceptions.
