England v Germany at Wembley Stadium


⚽️ The Lionesses return to the national stadium for the first time since 2014 to take on a Germany side ranked No2 in the world.  Tickets are sold out.

England are sure to receive a vociferous welcome at the home of football as they play their first competitive fixture since reaching the semi-finals of the 2019 Women’s World Cup, in front of what will be a record crowd.

While the Lionesses dreams of reaching their first Women’s World Cup final were crushed in a dramatic semi-final loss to eventual winners United States at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais stadium in July, Phil Neville’s team captivated the nation in their march to the last four.

Germany suffered a disappointing quarter-final defeat to Sweden in their mission for World Cup glory.  However the No2 ranked women’s team in the FIFA world rankings will provide a stern test this evening as they prepare for the qualification stages of UEFA Euro 2021.

With England hosting the Euro 2021 tournament at nine venues across the country the Lionesses do not need to qualify for the finals.  Instead they are lining up a series of high-profile fixtures starting at Wembley this evening.

England and Germany last met at Wembley in November 2014, with the visitors taking a 3-0 win on front of a record crowd of 45,619 spectators which will be surpassed this evening.  Will it be a German repeat or Lionesses revenge?  All roads lead to to the national stadium tonight to find out!

Kick-off is at 5.30pm.

Tickets are sold out.
