Europe's governing body, Uefa, has given the go-ahead for England's European Championship qualifier against Andorra to be played in Barcelona.

Following a request by the Andorran Football Association, the match on 28 March will be played at the Olympic Stadium, home of Espanyol. Andorra's ground seats only 1,800.

The decision was taken at Uefa's executive committee meeting in Düsseldorf yesterday. The Football Association backed Andorra's application after the experience of a tie in Liechtenstein four years ago, when few England supporters were able to obtain tickets. The Spanish FA has agreed to the match taking place in Barcelona.
