England Women to round off 2020 with friendly against Norway

England Women will host Norway in a friendly in December, the Football Association has announced.

The match will take place at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane on December 1 and conclude the Lionesses’ fixtures for 2020.

They are in action for the first time since March’s SheBelieves Cup campaign when they face Germany in Wiesbaden on October 27.

England women have not played since the SheBelievesCup in March

England women will play Norway at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane in a friendly on 1 December shown live on BBC Four.

It will be the third meeting between the two teams in 18 months.

The most recent encounter saw Jill Scott, Ellen White and Lucy Bronze on target in a 3-0 victory as England advanced to the 2019 World Cup semi-finals.

Later this month, England face two-time World Cup winners Germany in Wiesbaden.

“I’m delighted with the strength of opposition we will be testing ourselves against,” manager Phil Neville said.

“As we rebuild and reshape our squad, we need to consistently challenge ourselves against some of the world’s strongest teams to gauge our strengths and weaknesses and plot the work that’s needed between now and our next major tournament in order to be ready to win.”

Will Amazon’s “Climate Pledge Friendly” Label Transform Online Shopping?

Amazon recently announced a new climate initiative which allows customers to “see the Climate Pledge Friendly label when searching for more than 25,000 products to signify that the products have one or more of 19 different sustainability certifications that help preserve the natural world, such as reducing the carbon footprint of shipments to customers.”
