England's fixtures for next year's prestigious SheBelieves Cup have been announced.
The Lionesses will travel to Columbus, Ohio where they will play France, who were last year's tournament winners, at the MAPFRE Stadium on Thursday 1st March (9pm GMT KO).
They will then face Germany at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey on Sunday 4th March (8pm GMT KO), before playing the hosts and World Cup holders USA at Orlando City Stadium, Florida on Wednesday 7th March (12am GMT KO, Thursday 8th March).
The annual tournament was established in 2016 with the same countries, who make up four of the top six FIFA-ranked teams, having participated since its inception.
England captain Steph Houghton said: "The SheBelieves Cup is a massive tournament for us and as players we really look forward to the challenge of such big games.
"It's important that we get the chance to test ourselves against the best teams in the world in a tournament environment, which is so different to anything else.
"Everything we are doing now is focused towards qualifying for the 2019 World Cup and giving ourselves the chance to do as well as we possibly can there."
Last year's tournament was closely contested with the Lionesses losing narrowly to Germany (1-0) and France (2-1) - but beating USA 1-0, thanks to an Ellen White goal, for their first away victory against the Stars and Stripes.
