England to play Germany & Chile in pre-World Cup friendlies

England v Germany

England will play Germany and Chile in Wembley friendlies in November as part of their World Cup preparations.

Roy Hodgson's team, who beat Poland 2-0 on Tuesday to qualify for Brazil 2014, will face Chile on 15 November before meeting three-time World Cup winners Germany four days later.

Both opponents have also qualified for next summer's tournament.

England have not played Germany since losing 4-1 to them in the second round of the 2010 World Cup finals.

The games will conclude a year in which England have played Brazil, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland in friendlies at Wembley as part of the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations.external-link
