The European Football Association (UEFA) announced on Wednesday that European champions England will meet Copa America winners Brazil in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Final at Wembley Stadium in London on April 6 next year.
England beat Germany in the European Championship final in July to lift their first major title, while Brazil sealed their eighth continental title in nine attempts by beating Colombia.

Sarina Weigman’s side have already beaten world champions the United States, winning 2-1 at Wembley earlier this month.
“The match was organized in the framework of a long-term partnership between UEFA and South America and comes on the back of highly successful final tournaments for both associations in July this year,” UEFA said in a statement.
Argentina won their first men’s tournament in the final, with Lionel Messi inspiring South America with a 3-0 win over European champions Italy in London in June.
