Australian women's football captain Sam Kerr is to face trial in England after being accused of the racially aggravated harassment of a police officer.

The Chelsea striker was deemed to have used insulting, threatening or abusive words that caused alarm or distress to an officer during an incident in Twickenham at the end of January.

Australian correspondent Murray Olds says Kerr is expected to head to trial next February.
