England Women will take on Euro 2013 hosts Sweden in Uddevalla on Thursday 4 July.
The game will take place just eight days before Hope Powell’s side get their European Championship campaign underway against Spain.
Powell said: “I’m very pleased to have secured this friendly as it will be great preparation for us.
“Sweden have always been a strong team and they are tipped to do well in the Euros so this will be a great test.”
The last time the two sides met was in the build up to the 2011 World Cup when England won 2-0 at Oxford United’s Kassam Stadium.
Pia Sundhage’s side, who won the Euros in 1984, are ranked sixth in the world, one place above England.
As they build towards the Finals, the Three Lions will face world champions Japan at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium on Wednesday 26 June, their last match in this country before they fly to Sweden.
