England 1-0 Haiti LIVE: Stanway ends Lionesses’ goal drought by firing home penalty after VAR drama causes initial retake in Women’s World Cup opener

England will begin get their quest for more silverware when they take on Haiti in their opening game of the Women’s World Cup.

Sarina Wiegman’s European champions are among the heavy favourites for glory this summer in Australia and New Zealand.

The Dutchwoman ended the country’s 56-year wait for a senior trophy last year as part of an impressive 30-game unbeaten run as Lionesses boss.

But that came to an end with a 2-0 defeat to tournament co-hosts Australia in April, before they limped to a 0-0 draw with Portugal.
