Three Key England Dates For November

Last updated : 22 October 2019 By Three Lions

November is set to be a busy month for England's senior men and women and here are three key dates to look out for.

Saturday 9th: Wembley is sold out for the Lionesses friendly against Germany on what promises to be a landmark occasion for the women's game.

Phil Neville's side have struggled for form since the World Cup, as they begin the process of building for Euro 2021 which will be hosted in England, but will be looking to take inspiration from a record crowd and lay down an early marker for that tournament.

Thursday 14th: Wembley again and this time it will be the 1,000th England men's international.

Not only that but the home game against Montenegro should see Gareth Southgate's side secure their place at next year's European Championships.

Saturday 30th: An FA delegation will be in Bucharest to find out who England will be playing in the group stages of Euro 2020, albeit the four play-off winners will not yet have been decided.

With a number of different countries co-hosting the tournament, England will be in Group D if they qualify as that is Wembley's group.

Hampden Park is the other Group D venue so there could yet be a meeting of the Auld Enemy as Scotland still have a chance of qualifying through the play-offs.

The UEFA website has more details on the draw.
