England to face USA, Brazil and Japan in 2019 SheBelieves Cup

Thursday 06 Dec 2018
England are preparing for next summer's World Cup

England Women will take on Brazil, Japan and World Cup holders, and hosts, USA in the annual SheBelieves Cup early next year.

Phil Neville’s squad will be competing in the round-robin tournament for the fourth successive year.

The Lionesses open up against Brazil in Philadelphia on Wednesday 27 February 2019, followed by a meeting with USA in Nashville three days later and then Japan in Tampa on Tuesday 5 March 2019.

England finished second in last season’s SheBelieves Cup after easing to a 4-1 win over France, Neville’s first match in charge, and drawing 2-2 with Germany before slipping to a 1-0 defeat by USA.

All four nations are among the top eight in the FIFA rankings and will all be in the hat for Saturday’s World Cup draw.

The World Cup will be staged in France between 7 June and 7 July 2019.
