England v France


disabled access

England Lionesses will play France, the third best team in the world, at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster on Friday 21 October at 8pm (kick-off).

The sides last faced each other in March in a closely-fought 0-0 draw at the SheBelieves Cup. England sealed qualification for next summer's tournament, which will take place in Netherlands, with a 7-0 win over Serbia in June.

England head coach Mark Sampson said: “We want to focus on playing European opposition between now and next summer's Euros. There are some excellent nations who will be at the tournament and the more experience we can have playing them the better prepared we'll be.“We're pleased that France have agreed to come over and play us. We haven't beaten them for a long time so we're looking to change that. He added: “We're looking forward to playing at Doncaster. The club has such a big women's football history and the Keepmoat is a great stadium so it will hopefully make for a great game.”

Gavin Baldwin, chief executive of Club Doncaster, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark Sampson and the England Women's team to the Keepmoat Stadium as they take on France in what should be a fantastic game!"
