In preparation for their Elite Qualifying Round campaign, England Under-19 will entertain France at Sixfields Stadium, home of Northampton Town FC, in November.
It will be the first meeting between the two nations since last season's European Championship Final which the French won 2-1, disposing England of the title they won 12 months earlier.
However, only a few players remain in each squad from that Final in Macedonia and November's game will give Mo Marley the chance to test her side ahead of the final round of qualifiers for this season's Euros. England eased past Moldova (4-0), Armenia (9-0) and Finland (2-0) in the First Qualifying Round.
"It should be a really good game and it would be great to have a sizeable crowd cheering us on," said Mo.
"We've been doing well at this level for a few years now and this match will provide us with the ideal preparation for March. We did well in Moldova and we will be looking to build on that and maintain our momentum going into the second round of qualifiers."
Northampton Town's Chairman David Cardoza said: "We are delighted to welcome the England Under-19s to Sixfields.
"We have hosted various England teams at different ages over the last few years and have always found the Northampton public keen to get behind the Three Lions' teams.
"The players can look forward to a decent crowd and an excellent playing surface here at Sixfields and we are looking forward to an open, exciting game and a wonderful occasion for the supporters."
The match takes place on Thursday 25 November (7pm) and tickets are priced £3 for adults on the day (£1 in advance) and £1 for concessions. The Northampton Town FC Ticket Hotline is (01604) 683777.
