image for England announce friendly with Tristan da Cunha
"Not an easy place to get a result"

The FA have announced an away friendly international with Tristan da Cunha next year. As part of their World Cup preparations England will need preparations for the real tests when they face the likes of Andorra.

Despite only having a population of 271 with over two thirds being women and children the FA still think it will provide a stern test for the England squad. The remote volcanic islands expect to have a team in place by then if fishing and farming commitments don't involve too many of their players.

Most of the England players will only have meaningless Premier League matches to play by then if their clubs select them and the FA can't see any problem with the managers allowing their players 3 weeks off to prepare for, get to and play this fixture.

An FA Spokesman at Lancaster Gate said "As we know there are no easy international fixtures these days. Tristan da Cunha is a hard place to go to and get a result."
