Which venue will host England vs Austria?
For a significant match, you need a worthy venue and what could be better than Old Trafford. In a testament to the growth of the women’s game, England have sold out the 74,140-seater stadium, meaning the players will have the advantage of a raucous crowd cheering them on.
Manchester United forward Ella Toone can’t wait to grace the pitch for the third time in her career.
As per The Daily Mail, she said: “My uncle has bought a box with eight of them, I bought a box for my dad, so there’s eight in there. I had four, and then I bought 16, so there’s a lot of us.
“Growing up, supporting Manchester United and having the opportunity to play for Manchester United at Old Trafford was so special and a moment that I’ll never forget and then obviously now, stepping out for England is gonna be amazing.
“I know that you’ve got to take these moments because they don’t come around often. We’ve sold out Old Trafford, we’re playing for England in our home Euros. These are once-in-a-lifetime things so why not just go out there and enjoy it.”
