AMEX STADIUM TO HOST FIRST INTERNATIONAL

The American Express Community Stadium will get its first taste of international football by hosting England Under-19s against Denmark in a friendly on 10 November.

AMEX Stadium has only been open a few months but has already seen Premier League outfit Liverpool amongst many top Championship sides on its turf. The game will be England's first on home soil since February and comes on the back of next month's mini tournament in France which sees manager Noel Blake's young side test their mettle against some of Europe's finest youth development teams.

"I haven't been to the new stadium myself but The FA's Club England setup thought it was very impressive when they visited recently," said Blake. "It looks superb from the games I've seen on TV, so our youngsters will relish playing there I'm sure."

Ticket details will be announced in due course.
