England to host Czech Republic at Brighton in October
England are to return to the scene of two of their most memorable UEFA EURO 2022 victories when they welcome Czech Republic to Brighton on Tuesday 11 October.
The south-coast venue was where the Lionesses were 8-0 winners against Norway in a group-stage fixture, before a dramatic 2-1 quarter-final victory over Spain after extra time.
The Czechs are an emerging force, having drawn twice with the Netherlands in their qualifying group for the World Cup. They also earned a goalless draw away to the United States in last February’s SheBelieves Cup. England last faced Czech Republic in November 2019 when Bethany England, Beth Mead and Leah Williamson were all on the scoresheet in a 3-2 victory away from home.
The game in Brighton will follow England’s meeting with the US at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Friday 7 October with both fixtures seen as vital to the squad’s 2023 FIFA World Cup preparations.
“The World Cup has our full focus," said England head coach Sarina Wiegman. "It's great we will have challenging matches against two opponents who have very different styles of play, as we start the road to Australia and New Zealand. We have achieved so much this year, but we need to be thinking about where we want to be as a squad next summer on the biggest stage of all. I'm also very happy we get a chance to go back to Brighton and say thank you to the fans who played such a big part in our EURO experience.”
