England are to play an Under-23 match against Belgium as Sarina Wiegman looks to increase opportunities for promising players in the senior pathway.
The Under-23s will travel to the Stade Leburton in Tubize for the international fixture on 25th October (kick off 1.30pm), with experienced coach Mo Marley returning to guide the squad on an interim basis.
The training camp prior to departure will be at St George's Park under the guidance of Marley who will mentor Emma Coates and England's most capped player Fara Williams, alongside goalkeeper coach Tom Pressman to complete the coaching team.
Kay Cossington, Head of Women's Technical, said: "Sarina and her staff want to bridge the gap between the age groups and the seniors, and after 18 months of
limited international football in the women's game we can start to make up for lost opportunities.
"Emma and Fara will benefit greatly from working with Mo on this camp, as part of our commitment to helping our young coaches to get as much varied experience as
possible. I am sure the players will relish the chance to be involved in international football and show what they can do."
Meanwhile, the Under-17s returned this week after making it through the first round of qualifying in the 2022 UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship in Poland.
The squad will now enter the next round in the New Year as one of 28 teams hoping to secure one of seven spots in the eight-team finals to be held in Bosnia-
Herzegovina next May.
