As previously reported by Sky Sports, a number of Premier League grounds, including those of Tottenham, Aston Villa, Manchester City, and Newcastle would be among those used in the tournament, along with the Millennium Stadium in Wales.
It will certainly be intriguing to see these major international games played here, following some games in the UK at Euro 2020 as part of a tournament that also held matches in other major European countries such as Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
England have done well in recent tournaments, reaching the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and the final of Euro 2020, and they’ll hope home advantage can help them in five years’ time.
