PARIS (AP) — France will host Belgium in a friendly match next June at the Stade de France as part of its preparations for the 2016 European Championship.

The June 7 match against the World Cup quarterfinalists will follow two other friendlies against Brazil and Denmark in March. The French football federation says it will be the 73rd match between the neighboring countries.

As host of the tournament, France has already qualified for Euro 2016 but has set up nine friendly games this year to remain match fit ahead of the tournament.
