England Women’s National team will play Germany at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 23 November 2014
The match is a reciprocal agreement, and England will travel to Germany for a return fixture.
The English FA reports that the fixture is subject to Germany’s World Cup qualification.
England became the second European side to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Canada 2015 after last night’s 4-0 win over Wales.
Germany are the reigning European champions and will provide a great test for England ahead of the tournament.
Sampson commented to The FA: “It’s a really exciting opportunity for the team to take on the European Champions. To test ourselves against teams of Germany’s calibre is important for the development of the team in the lead up to the World Cup.
“Everyone at the FA has worked really hard to give the team the opportunity to play at the home of football and it’s fantastic that we’re getting the chance to do so.
“This is something many people within the women’s football community have hoped for and now it is a reality, it really will be an historic milestone and platform from the women’s game in England.
“I really hope that supporters and football fans will come together to celebrate a fantastic occasion and cheer on the team.”
The match will be the first women’s football match to be hosted at Wembley, since the London 2012 Olympics.
