Sampson said: “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 game will be the first women’s football match at Wembley Stadium since the 2012 London Olympic Games. The match is a reciprocal agreement, and England will travel to Germany for a return fixture.
