England begin their Under 19 World Championship campaign later this evening (1am UK) against hosts and reigning champions, Canada.

The match is the headline game on Day 2 at the World Championships at Trent University and should attract a bumper crowd to kick-off both sides’ tournament.

The Championship sees England seeded into the ‘blue division’ Pool A along with Canada, USA and Australia, before entering a ‘Last 16’ knockout stage in the quest for a medal.

After this evening’s encounter, the girls will then play USA tomorrow (1am) and Australia on 4 August (7pm).
