England Women will take on the United States in Milton Keynes in their first international of 2015.

The Lionesses will play at the home of MK Dons, Stadium MK, on 13 February.

The match will be used as preparation for next summer's World Cup in Canada, where England will face France, Mexico and Colombia in the group stages.

Defender Alex Scott said on the Football Association's external-linkwebsite: "USA will be a tough game for us, they're a very good team."

Scott, who played in the Arsenal side that beat Everton in the FA Women's Cup final at Stadium MK in June, added: "It's important that we play games like this ahead of the World Cup so we can be in the best place possible for the tournament."
