The U23 triangular tournament in the Midlands

Norway and Sweden U23 are coming soon for a triangular tournament with England U23. No information on the England FA website, no place, no date, no location, no squad news. You do wonder why, considering you get the information just by going on the Norwegian and Swedish FA ‘s website :

England Norway 25-06-13 1500

England Sweden 27-06-13 1500

Norway Sweden 29-06-13 1500

And the address University of Warwick, Coventry.

So why all this secrecy ?  because those games are played behind closed door. You would think promoting the women’s football game would be a priority for the FA. Maybe the pitch set-up does not allow for spectating and stewarding but I have attended a couple of games in the same location and there was no problem. I just find it totally absurd to deny fans the right to watch quality international football with many players looking to be in the senior squad soon and even maybe at Euro 2013. I was looking forward to see those games because one of the player I like has just come back to football after bad injuries and it was nice to see her play for England again.
