They began the day with a visit to Cressex Community School to observe a football session, answer questions and sign autographs, before stepping out on to the Adams Park pitch to get a feel for the stadium.

Davison told the FA website: “Fran and I really enjoyed visiting the school and seeing how many girls enjoy playing football – they have some talented players there.

“As a player, and also a coach, it’s great to get the chance to encourage girls to play, and keep playing, football.

“We’re looking forward to meeting up in camp and beginning out preparations for the game.

“We know Serbia will be a tough match and we’re determined to get all three points in front of all of our supporters in Wycombe.”

Cllr Katrina Wood said: "It lifts the whole town to have a game like this in our area. We work very closely with Wycombe Wanderers and to have the England team here is fantastic."

The Lionesses are unbeaten after four games in their qualifying campaign, second in Group 7 to Belgium but with a game in hand.

Tickets for the match at Wycombe are still available priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket priced £15 (two adults and two children) is available and group booking discounts apply.
