England will play Denmark in a Wembley friendly on 5 March 2014 in the build-up to the World Cup.

The fixture has been arranged as part of the agreement which saw the teams meet in Copenhagen in February 2011.

England will also face Chile and Germany in Wembley friendlies in November as part of their preparations for next summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Morten Olsen's side missed out on a berth as they finished with the weakest record of the nine group runners-up.

England beat Denmark 2-1 in the 2011 friendly in the Parken Stadium thanks to goals from Ashley Young and Darren Bent.

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

Both Germany and Chile have also qualified for next summer's tournament.
