Confirmed just 48 hours after this triumph over Germany in the European Championship final, Sarina Wiegman’s side announced they would be returning to England’s national stadium to take on a star studded American team – and tickets are already going fast.
And while the Lionesses have still to negate two World Cup qualifiers against Austria and Luxembourg in September, the intriguing tie between the two champions is sure to spark further interest in a side who have been an inspiration throughout the summer.
The sides are no strangers to each other, having played each other in the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2019 and, more recently, the SheBelieves Cup in 2020 where the USA ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Christen Press and Carli Llyod.
However, the number one FIFA ranked side will now face an England side that have been invigorated by Dutch head coach Wiegman, who has yet to taste defeat since taking charge 10 months ago and helped the nation lift their first major trophy in 56 years.
With the Euro 2022 trophy now firmly placed in the Lionesses trophy cabinet, all attention will turn to the 2023 Women’s World Cup, and it appears that both sides have seized the opportunity to pack out Wembley, whilst also testing themselves against high quality opposition.
