England women to face Brazil  …in front of Wembley sell-out

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.

The Brazil clash will be an im­portant test against a tough top-10 side ahead of England’s World Cup campaign kicking off in Australia and New Zealand in July.

The Lionesses have been drawn against China and Denmark in Group D and are awaiting their final group stage opponent, who they will face in their tournament opener on July 22.

That country will be determined by February’s inter-confederation play-offs, with 10 teams from six federations vying for the final three places. — Sky Sports
