Head coach Sarina Wiegman sees England Women's training camp at the Pinatar Arena in Murcia Spain as a "great opportunity" to gauge where the team is at ahead of the 2023 World Cup.

England's Lionesses set up 2023 World Cup training camp with matches against Norway and Japan

England will play friendlies against Japan and Norway in Spain in November, according to the Football Association.

The European champions are to spend their final camp of the calendar year at the Pinatar Arena football centre in Murcia, taking on Japan on November 11 and the Norwegians four days later, as they continue the build-up to next summer’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The Lionesses last played Japan at the 2020 SheBelieves Cup, winning 1-0, while their most recent meeting with Norway was the remarkable 8-0 group-stage victory en route to winning the Euros over the summer.

Norway have since replaced boss Martin Sjogren with Hege Riise, who had three games as England’s interim boss in 2021 prior to Sarina Wiegman taking charge, and managing Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympics.

Wiegman said: “I am really pleased we can continue to test ourselves against strong opposition, especially as we are fully focused on our preparation for the World Cup.

“It will be a great opportunity to see where we stand. Furthermore, I hope a change of scenery and good climate for that time of year can contribute to keeping the players fresh after what has been an exciting and, at the same time, intense year for all.”

On Tuesday Wiegman named her squad for the forthcoming international break, in which England face the United States at Wembley and then the Czech Republic at the Amex Stadium on October 7 and 11 respectively.
