 European cham­pions England will play in front of a sold-out Wembley once again when they host Brazil in the inaugural Women’s Finalissima this spring.

The Lionesses, ranked fourth in FIFA’s rankings, will take on the South American champions in London on April 6.

A sell-out Wembley crowd also watched England’s 2-1 friendly win over world champions, USA, in October in what was the team’s first appearance at the national stadium since their Euro 2022 final victory over Germany.

A crowd of 87,192 were at that July final – the biggest-ever atten­dance for a Euros match, men’s or women’s.
