England face Iceland at Colchester
 Women's Football News 7 May 2009
England face Iceland at Colchester - 7 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsFollowing on from an impressive 3-0 friendly victory against Norway in April, Hope Powell's England side will take on Iceland at Colchester United's Weston Homes Community Stadium in the first of two friendly internationals in July.
A second friendly fixture against Denmark will follow the game against Iceland, as England's women move ever closer to the UEFA European Championship in Finland at the end of the August. Iceland are currently 18th in the FIFA world rankings and will also be taking part in Finland, having been drawn in Group B alongside Germany, Norway and France.
In terms of preparation, the England Head Coach knows only too well the importance of these friendly matches, particularly with the Euro Championships just around the corner. "Playing Iceland and then Denmark in July will provide us with top quality opposition that will test the character and endeavour of the squad as we count down to Finland," she said. "Both these teams will be bringing strong squads to England in terms of their own preparation for the Euros so the games will be a good gage of where our squad is at and what level we will need to be playing at to compete and do well this summer.
"We are really looking forward to the double header in July and building on our good form so far this year, it will be great to keep the momentum going all the way up to Finland. It will also be our visit to Colchester's new stadium and we are hoping for a great crowd."
Steve Bradshaw, Chief Executive of Colchester United Football Club, said, "It is an honour and a privilege to be hosting another international match here at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. Last year's England Under-19 International was a sell out and we are hopeful that the local community will come out in force again for this Women's International Friendly.
"It was always an aspiration to host international games and it is testament to the quality of the stadium that the Football Association has chosen the Weston Homes Community Stadium twice in the first twelve months of its existence."
