Lionesses are ea­ger to keep the mo­men­tum go­ing

The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

ENG­LAND cap­tain Steph Houghton says the team are rel­ish­ing the chance to play in front of their home fans in Novem­ber for the first time since the World Cup.

Mark Samp­son’s bronze medal­lists are set to take on Bos­nia & Herze­gov­ina at Ash­ton Gate in a Euro 2017 qual­i­fier on Novem­ber 29.

And though there is a Women’s Su­per League sea­son to com­plete be­fore that date, Houghton says she is al­ready look­ing for­ward to the oc­ca­sion.

“The team can’t wait to play in Eng­land once again in front of our home fans,” said the 27-yearold.

“The sup­port we re­ceived from home dur­ing the World Cup was amaz­ing and re­ally helped push us on and per­form how we did.

“We want to con­tinue build­ing the mo­men­tum through­out the Euro qual­i­fy­ing cam­paign and hope that as many fans as pos­si­ble come out to sup­port us.”

Tick­ets for the game are priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for chil­dren. A fam­ily ticket (two adults and two chil­dren) is avail­able at £10.
