However, as a result of longstanding planned engineering works taking place on the day of the game, impacting transport options, The FA has sought ongoing advice on crowd numbers and has taken the decision to cap ticket sales at the current number.
A significant increase in sales since last Monday, which were at a level of 33,000 tickets sold, coupled with our ongoing review of transport capacity, has accelerated the capping of the game.

To have achieved ticket sales of 55,000 shows just how big an audience there is for women's football and what a landmark occasion it will be for the women's game.
There were limited options in the calendar for this fixture and the date remains the best opportunity to play world class opposition at Wembley Stadium despite the restrictions.
By capping the capacity The FA can ensure that fans have the best match day experience possible in and around Wembley Stadium.
The FA will honour any existing bookings that are awaiting processing.
The FA apologises to anyone who will be disappointed by this announcement, but taking into account previous similar experiences such as the England v Andorra fixture in 2009, where a crowd of 58,000 were present, we believe this to be a sensible decision based on the latest travel advice.
The Bakerloo line will be running at full service and the Chiltern rail service into Wembley Stadium station is operating with additional trains. More information can be found at WembleyStadium.com.
