The two sides last came together in March, in a closely-fought 0-0 draw at the SheBelieves Cup.


England have already sealed qualification for next summer’s tournament, which will take place in Netherlands, following a 7-0 win over Serbia back in June.


England head coach Mark Sampson said: “We want to focus on playing European opposition between now and next summer’s Euros. There are some excellent nations who will be at the tournament and the more experience we can have playing them, the better prepared we’ll be.


“We’re pleased that France have agreed to come over and play us. We haven’t beaten them for a long time so we’re looking to change that.


“They are the third best team in the world so it is a great test for us and if we’re going to do well at the Euros we’ll have to beat teams like France on the way.


“Although it’s a friendly we’ll be approaching this game in a very competitive way as part of our tournament preparations.


“We’re looking forward to playing at Doncaster. The area has such a big women’s football history and the Keepmoat is a great stadium so it will hopefully make for a great game.”


Gavin Baldwin, chief executive of Club Doncaster added: “We are delighted to welcome Mark Sampson and the England Women’s team to the Keepmoat Stadium as they take on France in what should be a fantastic game.


“Our area has a long association with the women’s game, with the Belles side one of the most iconic names since their formation in 1969. I am delighted that we can build on that by hosting this game and hope we get a good crowd to support the Lionesses.”
