England v Croatia, WALSALL, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 19, 2012

England centurion Casey Stoney scored in the Lionesses’ last visit to Walsall, when they beat Croatia 3-0 in 2012.

Stoney said: “These games will be really important in setting the tone for our World Cup qualification campaign and we’ll be absolutely determined to get two good wins in front of our own fans.

“I’m particularly looking forward to playing in Colchester. I come from Basildon so it’s great to have a game in Essex.

“We really enjoy taking our games around the country and giving as many people as possible the chance to come and watch us.

“We have had such fantastic support so far during the Euros and hopefully we’ll have two big crowds at both games.”

England will open their Group 1 qualifying campaign against Russia at Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park on Tuesday 19 September (7.05pm KO), get your tickets here: https://www.trfctickets.co.uk/england-v-russia

  1. I have the last game on DVD with Bosnia for this year’s qualification, played in a rain-swept Ashton Gate. I think they had a man playing for them, as one player went down for nothing, after an innocuous brush with Laura Bassett. THey defended well with 10 men in defence at times. Awful to watch but nearly worked, until Jill Scott (who else) got the only goal.
