WNT Feb 8, 2011
The U.S. WNT will play in England for the first time in its 27-year history when the Americans and the Three Lionesses meet on April 2 at Leyton Orient's Brisbane Road in east London. All the players are looking forward to the trip, but U.S. midfielder Tobin Heath more than most. You see, she's a HUGE English Premier League fan, especially the Gunners of Arsenal, and can't wait to experience some of the English soccer culture.
“It’s really great have the opportunity to play in England for many reasons. It will be my first trip to England and the first for our team. To be able to play England in their home country, which has such a rich football tradition, will not only be an unique experience but a great game to prepare us for the World Cup. After watching so many English Premier League games and hearing so much about the country and its history, it will be a fun experience to see that soccer culture from close up.”
