Mark Sampson's team travelled to Sweden last year and agreed to a reciprocal fixture which will take place on August 3, with venue and kick-off time yet to be confirmed.
England are five matches into their FIFA 2015 Women's World Cup qualifying campaign, enjoying a 100 per cent record so far, and their next qualifier comes up on May 8 against Ukraine at Shrewsbury's Greenhous Meadow stadium.
They were beaten 4-1 by the Swedes in Uddevalla last July after Ellen White had put England in front in the 12th minute.
Sampson said: "We are really pleased that Sweden have agreed to come to England in August.
"For us to test ourselves against one of the best teams in the world is not only a fantastic opportunity for us, but also a brilliant occasion for our supporters.
"Sweden have an outstanding team and a great manager, so we can't wait to take them on and really measure where we are at."
