Lois Fidler’s England Women’s U17 side will continue their preparations for the European Championship by taking on USA in Hinckley later this month.
The Euro Finals will be staged in England in November and December and with the Young Lions qualifying as hosts they have been getting accustomed to tournament football by recently taking part in tournaments in Spain and Iceland.
Fidler is confident USA will provide her charges with a different test and is certain the players will benefit from further exposure to international football.
She said: “The two tournaments we’ve been to have allowed me to look at a large, competitive pool of players.
“The girls have had a lot of exposure to tournament football recently and I expect this game to be a totally different challenge so I’m sure they will learn a lot from it.
“It’s a great game to have in place as we continue to work towards the Euros.”
