England Women will prepare for the summer's European Championships with friendlies in Colchester and Swindon.

Hope Powell's team will face Iceland at Colchester United on Thursday, 16 July, before taking on Denmark at Swindon's County Ground on Wednesday, 22 July.

"We beat Norway in April so we'll be looking to build on that for these two friendlies and take that confidence into the tournament," said Powell.

England face Sweden, Russia and Italy at the Euros in Finland in August.

Iceland and Denmark have also qualified for the tournament, which starts on Sunday, 23 August.

Powell added of the second friendly: "Denmark are a good side so I'm anticipating a close game against quality opposition."
