Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport's live coverage of Euro 2022, and the tournament's opening match: hosts England versus Austria at Old Trafford.
There is no little expectation on England's shoulders. Much has been said about the impact of the home crowd, with 500,000 tickets sold and many matches, including tonight's opener, sold out. But speaking ahead of the opener, captain Leah Williamson asserted that excitement, rather than nerves, is the prevailing emotion within the England camp.
"We've put in the work over the last few weeks and ticked the boxes we needed to. We know what it is and what to expect. We're ready for it," she said.
"Everybody has their own things in place to deal with it. Pressure is a privilege and we are embracing it. It comes with the job but it doesn't mean we can't enjoy it at the same time.
"We're not robots. There will be nerves. We're aware of the expectation. Within the camp it's about the excitement and enjoying it.
"This is my job. If I wasn't ready for tomorrow and wasn't excited for tomorrow then why would I do it."
