The U.S. will face England in two highly anticipated matches over the next two months. Before the two men's squads go head-to-head in a pivotal 2022 World Cup group stage match in Qatar, the women's teams from each country will face off at one of the world's most famous venues.

The U.S. women's national team is kicking off a two-game European Tour with a match against England on Friday. While this match is an international friendly, the contest will provide an intense test for both sides ahead of next year's FIFA Women's World Cup.

Here is everything to know about the USWNT-England match on Friday:

Where is the USWNT's match vs. England?

The contest will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.

A sellout crowd of nearly 90,000 fans is expected to fill the building. In July, the Lionesses faced Germany in the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 Final at Wembley and were victorious in front of 87,192 fans, which broke the attendance record for a men's or women's European championship.

Friday's crowd is expected to be the highest for any U.S. soccer match since the 1999 Women's World Cup Final at the Rose Bowl in which the USWNT beat China on penalty kicks.
