Jacqui Oatley introduces live coverage of England's opening game against Spain at Uefa Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden.

England are one of the tournament favourites after reaching the final four years ago and remaining unbeaten in qualifying for 2013. They will also draw confidence from Team GB's impressive performances at the London 2012 Olympics.

Spain, who beat Scotland in a play-off to reach these finals, will be tough first opponents for Hope Powell's side. But the England squad includes several survivors from their last European campaign, including Kelly Smith, Karen Carney and captain Casey Stoney.

Guy Mowbray and Lucy Ward provide the commentary in Linkoping, while a panel of current and former England internationals join Jacqui Oatley in the studio.

Plus highlights of the other match in Group C between France and Russia.
