England midfielder Fara Williams believes Wales will provide the toughest test in World Cup qualifying.
The two sides meet at The Den just a month after the Three Lions racked up comfortable victories over Belarus (6-0) and Turkey (8-0). Ukraine and Montenegro are the other nations in Group 6 but Williams reckons Jarmo Matikainen's charges will be England's trickiest opponent.
She told TheFA.com: "It should be a really good game - England v Wales is always great to watch. Neither set of players will want to lose and more importantly there are qualifying points at stake.
"Because of the circumstances, this could be the most difficult game both sides will face in this group. I think we will bring out the best in each other. We can't write off any of the other teams - we never have and we never will - but England v Wales is always tasty.
"But we've got to try and put the whole 'Battle of Britain' thing to the back of our minds and just focus on what we've been doing in training and how we want play. If we do that we've got a good chance of getting the right result."
The Liverpool title winner was England's fulcrum in the opening two qualifiers and she set up two of the eight goals against Turkey at Fratton Park. A number of players stood out in last month's double header but Fara has refused to get too excited by England's start to their Canada 2015 campaign.
She added: "We've got to be happy with how we started but people probably would have expected us to beat both of those teams so we can't get carried away.
"Wales will be a completely different test to Belarus and Turkey. We obviously know a lot of their players from the WSL and they have got some really talented individuals so we will have to be on top of our game."
