The Red Roses face the United States at Sandy Park, Exeter on September 3, before tackling Wales at Ashton Gate in Bristol 11 days later.

They are England’s final two games before embarking on their World Cup campaign in New Zealand during October and November.

The Lionesses were crowned European champions after beating Germany 2-1 following extra time at Wembley on Sunday, watched by a crowd of more than 87,000.

And the Rugby Football Union says that sales have now more than doubled across the September fixtures, combined.

“We have seen a spike in sales in the period over the weekend and on the Monday following the Euro final,” an RFU spokesperson told the PA news agency.

“And that was compared to the weekend/Monday prior to the final.

“There has been an average increase of over 100 per cent in ticket sales for both games.”

The Red Roses are currently world-ranked number one, and have reeled off four successive Six Nations title triumphs. They are also on a 23-match unbeaten run.

England kick off their World Cup campaign against Fiji in Auckland on October 8, which is followed by pool-stage appointments with France and South Africa.

The Red Roses were crowned world champions eight years ago, and finished runners-up to New Zealand when the tournament was last staged in 2017.
