England and Wales are set to meet again in the qualifiers for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup after the two countries were drawn in the same group this week.
Both also ended up in the same qualifying group for the last World Cup in Canada, with England recording 2-0 and 4-0 victories on those occasions. Also in Group One will be Russia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Kazakhstan.
Scotland meanwhile are in Group Two and will not be too disappointed with the outcome. Top seeded nation in the group are Switzerland and new Head Coach Shelley Kerr will also be pitting her wits against Poland, Belarus and Albania once the group gets underway.
Group Three is arguably the toughest of the seven groups and Northern Ireland have been left with a daunting task. Not only have they been drawn in the same group as Republic of Ireland for the first time, but they also find themselves up against Norway and Holland, with Slovakia as the fifth team in the group.
The qualifying matches get underway in September and will go on over a course of twelve months, finishing in September 2018. The group winners will qualify automatically for the Finals in France, whilst the runners-up will compete over two rounds of play-offs, which will take place in October and November.
The draw for the qualifying groups is as follows:
Group 1: England, Russia, Wales, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kazakhstan
Group 2: Switzerland, Scotland, Poland, Belarus, Albania
Group 3: Norway, Holland, Republic of Ireland, Slovakia, Northern Ireland
Group 4: Sweden, Denmark, Ukraine, Hungary, Croatia
Group 5: Germany, Iceland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Faroe Islands
Group 6: Italy, Belgium, Romania, Portugal, Moldova
Group 7: Spain, Austria, Finland, Serbia, Israel
