England are set to break the attendance record for a women's home football match when they take on Germany.

The fixture, to be held at Wembley Stadium on November 9, has sold 75,000 tickets and is the last friendly of the year for Phil Neville's team.

The manager said: "We are grateful for the incredible support. We had loads travelling to watch us in France (for the World Cup), millions tuning in on TV and now this incredible show of support for the Germany game."

The current record is 70,584 set by Team GB at the 2012 London Olympics with their 1-0 win over Brazil at Wembley.

30,000 tickets have also been sold for this Saturday's friendly against Brazil. The game is being held at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.
