With both sides already heading to the FIFA Women’s World Cup next year in Australia and New Zealand, the Americans and the Lionesses will face off for the first time in roughly two and a half years.
The England women are fairly fresh off a big 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro championship after defeating Germany 2-1 in the final. Chloe Kelly scored the iconic game-winner in the 110th minute to secure the championship for the Lionesses.
The American women qualified for next year’s World Cup by winning the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship back in July, toppling Canada 1-0 in the final thanks to a converted penalty from Alex Morgan. Not only did it book a spot in the World Cup, but it clinched the USWNT’s qualification for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
The USWNT and England have met up 18 times in the past, although only two of those matches have been on England’s home soil. The Americans have come out on top 12 times while the Lionesses have only logged four wins, with two matches ending in a draw. The American women have outscored England 40-13 overall through those 18 meetings.
Following the clash with England, the USWNT will stay in Europe to take on Spain in another international friendly on October 11, followed by a pair of friendlies against Germany at home in November.
