Gemma Grainger’s Wales will travel to California to face four-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winners the USA on Sunday 9 July.

The fixture at the PayPal Stadium in San Jose (KO 21:00 BST) will be the first time the countries have met for a women’s international fixture and will be Wales’ final match ahead of the UEFA Women’s Nations League getting underway in September.

It will also be the USA’s final preparation match ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Speaking about the fixture, Gemma Grainger said: “To play the current world champions in their final match before the World Cup is a fantastic opportunity. To be asked to play them is a real compliment to our players, we’ll be playing top ranked teams in the Nations League in September so it’s great we can prepare for that against one of the best teams in the world.”
