England to play Sweden
 Women's Football News 7 Apr 2011
 
England to play Sweden - 7 Apr 2011 - Women's Football NewsAfter recording an impressive 2-1 victory over USA at the weekend, England team will continue their World Cup preparations with a high profile international against Sweden.
 
This match will take place at The Kassam Stadium, home to Oxford United, on Tuesday 17 May (7.45pm), just over five weeks before England's World Cup opener against Mexico in Wolfsburg.
 
The encounter in Oxford will be the first meeting between England and Sweden since the two nations met in the group stage of Euro 2009, when Faye White's 28th minute header was cancelled out by Victoria Svensson's penalty, a draw that clinched England's place in the quarter finals.
 
The most recent match-up on home soil was the last Group A fixture in Euro 2005. It drew a crowd of 25,694 to Blackburn Rovers' Ewood Park stadium on 11 June. A draw would have taken England through to the semi-finals but Sweden won 1-0 courtesy of Anna Sjostrom's scrambled goal.
 
Sweden are currently ranked number five in the world and England National Coach Hope Powell is looking forward to pitting her wits against one of the women's game's traditional powerhouses.
 
"Sweden are world class opposition and they are always there or thereabouts in the major tournaments," she said. "The last time we played them was in the European Championship and we always have tough games against them. This will undoubtedly be another tough game and it will give us the opportunity to test ourselves against a strong European side just a few weeks before the start of the World Cup.
 
"I was pleased with the way we played against USA and it will be a good test for us to see if we can replicate some of the things we did in that game against Sweden."
 
Oxford United chairman Kelvin Thomas said: "We are very pleased that the FA has chosen Oxford United to host this international and look forward to welcoming the management, players and supporters of both countries to the match.
 
"I'm sure it will be a great occasion and we are glad to be given this opportunity."
