Bassett and her England team-mates will play their next home game, against Estonia, at Meadow Lane on Thursday 15 September.

England have already qualified for next summer’s Euros, which will take place in Netherlands, but will be hoping for all three points to help top their qualifying group.

Bassett said: “Events like this are really important to us as footballers as you get a sense of how much the women’s game is growing and how the support for the England team is increasing.

“We want to pay that back by getting all three points against Estonia and putting in a good performance in front of our fans.

“It’s always a great feeling to represent your country, but to have an England game at Meadow Lane is really special for the Notts County players.

“We have great supporters and we know they’ll turn out for this England game too.”

Tickets are on sale now, priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children.

A family ticket is available, via phone booking only, priced £15 (two adults and two children) while group booking discounts apply.
