USA will reportedly play England at Yankee Stadium in November
Page Six has exclusively revealed that the World Champions USA will play third place England at Yankee Stadium.
In the article published on Page Six, it is said that the international friendly is reportedly being planned for November.
The exciting match will give New York fans a chance to see the stars of USA women’s soccer who recently won the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015! After finishing top of the ‘group of death’, the USWNT went on to knock out Colombia, China PR and Germany before beating Japan 5-2 in the final.
England put on an impressive World Cup performance and it was to be an unlucky injury time own goal that would see them knocked out at the semi-final stage against Japan. An international friendly match against USA will be a great opportunity to see what might have been for the Lionesses. After suffering semi-final heartache, England bounced back to be beat Germany and take home the bronze medal.

Don’t believe everything that you read.
That is the message from U.S. Soccer regarding a reported U.S. Women’s National Team clash against England at Yankee Stadium.
“We have no plans for a Women’s National Team match at Yankee Stadium,” a U.S. Soccer spokesperson told EoS this morning.
The New York Post originally reported a November USWNT, England encounter at Yankee Stadium, citing U.S. Soccer sources on their story. The supposed match would be part of a yet-to-be-finalized USWNT victory tour, starting with an August double against Costa Rica, followed by a two against Australia in September.
The Women’s return to the New York area makes sense. After all, the World Cup Champions drew tens of thousands of fans earlier this month for their ticker tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes in downtown New York City and their history making 25.4 million viewers on Fox has also served to demonstrate the popularity of the team and the sport nationwide.
Yankee Stadium, however, won’t be a part of their ten-game victory celebration.
Other venues surrounding the New York area may still be in play.
