The England Women’s team will face Italy away in a friendly next month. It will be the second time in just over a year that the two sides have met, England going down 1-0 last February in Viareggio.
The match will be played on Wednesday 17 March and Hope Powell will benefit from a full-strength squad this time out, after missing key players – striker Kelly Smith, captain Faye White and midfielder Katie Chapman in last season’s clash.
The Italy friendly will follow next week’s home international against Denmark. The game, on Thursday 19 February at 7.35pm kick-off, is being played at Portsmouth FC and will be televised live on Sky Sports.
Tickets for the match, priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions, are now on sale. There will be special group rates for local clubs and schools and booking forms are available now. For further details check out TheFA.com or call Portsmouth FC’s ticket hotline number on 023 9261 8777.
