England will play Canada as part of their UEFA Euro 2013 preparations on Sunday 7th April 2013 at The New York Stadium, Rotherham United FC at 3pm (local time).
Kerys Harrop has been called up to the England Senior squad for the first time after making a positive impression on Head Coach Hope Powell who has been monitoring the Birmingham defender whilst playing for the U-23s in La Manga.
England recently played Canada in the Cyprus Women’s Cup final, where a Rachel Yankey goal gave the Championship to England.
