The Lionesses and Brazil will play in the first ever women’s Finalissima next spring, following England’s win at the Euros tournament and Brazil’s Copa America Femenina triumph. The match has been organised as part of a long-standing partnership between UEFA and CONMEBOL. It’s set to be another highlight for women’s football and will also give both teams a chance to lift another trophy ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
England’s head coach, Sarina Wiegman, has said: “The great games keep on coming for us. This time, we have the opportunity to welcome Brazil to Wembley and it will be another big moment after the Euros and USA match. Like us, they will be thinking about the World Cup next summer. This is a chance to again test ourselves against another top 10 team in the world, an opportunity to win another trophy and give our fans something special to watch, hopefully in a packed out Wembley.”
Since winning the Euros earlier this year, Wiegman’s squad have followed up this success by beating current world champions USA in friendly. Brazil have built upon their Copa America success by beating Italy and Norway in friendlies, putting them in good stead for next year’s World Cup.
