The dates are now known for the three UEFA European Women's Championship play-offs, with the first of the berths to be decided next week.
Russia will meet a Finland side aiming to qualify for the first time having been defeated in the play-offs four years ago. The Finns, third in Group 1, welcome Russia to Pietarsaari on Saturday, with the Group 3 runners-up staging the return four days later.
The other ties will be played in November, the first being the fixture between Iceland and Norway. The Norwegians, twice European champions, will visit Iceland on 10 November, with Oslo hosting the second leg three days later.
On the same day that game finishes, the Czech Republic will travel to Italy for the first leg of their tie. The Italians, who have never failed to reach the final stages, then make the opposite journey on 27 November. That will decide the eighth berth in England next summer alongside the two other play-off winners, the hosts, and the four group victors - Sweden, Denmark, France and Germany.
