England's 'Lionesses' last appeared at The Den in a 1-0 victory over Spain on 1st April 2010. A well-taken, first-half goal from Katie Chapman gave England the win in what proved to be a crucial victory over Spain in front of a crowd of over 5,000. The victory maintained England's 100% record on route to qualifying for the FIFA Women's World Cupô 2011 in Germany, during which England reached the quarter finals before bowing out. The players are hoping once again, that fans from across the country will come out waving their England flags and roar them on to another victory at The Den.
Millwall FC's chief executive Andy Ambler said: "We are delighted to be hosting another high profile international at The Den. Millwall have long been big supporters of women's football and hopefully the FIFA Women's World Cupô 2015 Qualifying match England v Wales will give south London fans the chance to see some of the top players in the women's game."
