England is set to host the European Women's Championship in 2021, as Uefa confirmed it was the only nation to submit a bid by Friday's deadline.

Reported interest from Austria and Hungary never materialised, leaving the Football Association as the only applicant.

The FA still has to meet strict guidelines before being accepted.

Uefa's executive committee will make the decision on 3 December - but there will not be a vote.

As well as Wembley - which would host the final - the other proposed venues are Brighton's Amex Stadium, Brentford's Community Stadium, MK Dons' Stadium MK, Manchester City's Academy Stadium, Notts County's Meadow Lane, Peterborough's Abax Stadium, Rotherham's New York Stadium and Sheffield United's Bramall Lane.

England hosted Euro 2005 and reached the 1984 and 2009 European finals.
