England women: Bristol to host first post-World Cup home game

England Women
England finished third at the World Cup in Canada

England women's first home fixture since the World Cup will take place in November at Bristol City's Ashton Gate.

They will face Bosnia-Hercegovina on Sunday 29 November (15.30 GMT) in their second Uefa Euro 2017 qualifier.

For England manager Mark Sampson, it will be a return to the city where he managed Bristol Academy.

They finished third at the World Cup in Canada and captain Steph Houghton said: "The team can't wait to play in England once again in front of our home fans."

She added: "The support we received from home during the World Cup was amazing and really helped push us on and perform how we did.

"We want to continue building the momentum throughout the Euro qualifying campaign and hope that as many fans as possible come out to support us."

The performance of Sampson's side was the best finish in a global tournament by an England team since the men's side won the World Cup in 1966.
