LONDON: England will return to Wembley for their 2023 Women’s World Cup qualifier against Northern Ireland on October 23, it was announced Wednesday.

It will be the first competitive fixture for the Lionesses at the national stadium since the north London venue reopened in 2007, although the ground has hosted two friendlies against Germany in 2014 and 2019.

England last met Northern Ireland at St George’s Park in February for their first international since the coronavirus pandemic, with the hosts enjoying a comfortable 6-0 win.
