England's women warm up against Nigeria at Carrow Road
The England women's side take on Nigeria at Carrow Road, Norwich this evening in a friendly international, as preparation for their vital World Cup play-off against Iceland.
The match kicks off at 8.05pm, and will be covered live on SkySports. A big crowd is expected and tickets, which are available on the door are priced at £3 for adults and £1 for children.
England coach Hope Powell is firmly focused on the lessons that her squad can learn ahead of the World Cup play-off semi-finals which are coming up in August and September
"The match is about preparing for Iceland, which is the big game," said Powell.
"But it's also about having a look at players who, if we have injuries, will be able to step in.
"I think it will be a test, I don't think it will be easy but the performance is more important than the result."
One of the potential new performers at Carrow Road is Fulham's Kristy Moore. The Australian-born forward has been given clearance by FIFA to play for England, and the coach will want to see what she offers to the team.
"The idea is to get as many players on as possible and obviously we want to have a look at Kristy to assess how she does," said Powell.
The match will be the second England women's international hosted by Norwich City following a European Championship qualifier against Norway in February 2000, which was played in front of a crowd of more than 5000.
Nigeria have been specially invited by The Football Association to play this match because they are a member of the Commonwealth and the friendly will fit in with the city of Norwich's celebrations during the Commonwealth Games and the Queen's Jubilee.
Nigeria are the current African champions, and last met England in the Women's World Cup Finals in 1995, England winning 3-2 in Karlstad, Sweden.
