Young Lionesses Welcome Belgium to Tranmere

England will play host to Belgium for a WU23 international at Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park on Monday 20 February (7pm KO).

The Young Lionesses will aim to impress in the Merseyside match during what is a busy month for the national teams. 

The WU23 squad will be aiming for another strong performance after a series of promising displays in the latter part of 2022. The year concluded in November with a 0-0 draw with Italy in Rome after a 2-0 defeat of the Netherlands in Walsall. 

Tickets are now available to purchase via www.thefa.com/tickets priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for concessions. Schools will also get the chance to apply for up to 10 complimentary tickets, as well as England Accredited Clubs. 

England last met Belgium at U23 level in October 2021 away in Tubize with Katie Robinson scoring the only goal of the game and Ebony Salmon captaining the side. 

Elsewhere the WU19s prepare for a trip to Alicante, Spain ahead of facing Germany and Switzerland on Thursday 16 and Tuesday 21 February respectively. 

It’s also a busy February for Sarina Wiegman’s senior team who are taking part in three matches for the Arnold Clark Cup as they look towards the summer’s FIFA World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. 

March will see the WU17s begin the next phase of their UEFA EURO qualifiers with three fixtures in Croatia against the hosts, Norway and Belgium. 
The WU19s resume their EURO programme against Slovenia, Belarus and hosts Spain in April. The top team in each age group will progress to the summer finals.
