England, Germany set to play friendly at Wembley
LONDON (AP) — England has lined up a match against Germany next month as the teams prepare for next year’s World Cup.
The English Football Association says the old rivals are set to play on Nov. 19 at Wembley Stadium, where England beat Germany in the 1966 World Cup final.
FA executive Adrian Bevington also says England will host a non-European side on Nov. 15 or Nov. 16. Australia and Argentina have been linked as potential opponents.
Bevington says England also hopes to play Denmark at Wembley during the international window in March.
England is set to warm-up for the World Cup with a trip to the United States before flying onto Brazil in June. England will be based in Rio de Janeiro.
