To round off the calendar year England Women will head to Bramall Lane to face Norway on Tuesday 1st December.

The Lionesses have confirmed a home match against Norway in December, completing a 2020 fixture schedule which sees them pit themselves against top tier opposition.

It will be the two nations' third meeting in 18 months. The last occasion was the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup quarter-final at Le Harve's Stade Oceané, with England sealing a 3-0 victory to progress to the semi-finals.

Head coach Phil Neville said: "Today's announcement completes our 2020 fixture schedule and I'm delighted with the strength of opposition we will be testing ourselves against.

"Our last camp in September was a chance for a number of younger players to integrate with the senior squad and show their potential to be part of England's exciting journey over the coming years. It was also an opportunity to regroup and assess where players were following the long lay-off since the
SheBelieves Cup.

"The remainder of the year will be all about pitting ourselves against top quality opposition so that we have a good measure of where we are at in terms of our development and progression.

"As we rebuild and reshape our squad, we need to consistently challenge ourselves against some of the world's strongest teams to gauge our strengths and weaknesses and plot the work that's needed between now and our next major tournament in order to be ready to win."

The Lionesses continue their preparation towards the delayed home UEFA Women's EURO in 2022, with United's Bramall Lane one of the tournament venues.

The fixture with Norway will be broadcast live on BBC Four.
