England’s football team will play a friendly against Brazil in London next month.
The home side will face the South American team at Wembley Stadium on February 6th as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Football Association (FA).
Fans staying in central London hotels will be hoping that manager Roy Hodgson’s side will put on a strong display and could include a number of new faces such as Tom Cleverley, Leon Osman and Wilfried Zaha.
Club England managing director Adrian Bevington said: “We’re delighted Brazil will kick-off the FA’s 150th anniversary celebrations at Wembley.
“2013 is a landmark year for the FA and an exciting England fixture programme in addition to Wembley hosting the UEFA Champions League Final will form a key part of the celebrations.
“As the most successful footballing nation, with great players and supporters, it will be fantastic to launch this important year in English football’s history against such outstanding opponents as Brazil.”
England are currently taking part in a campaign for qualification for the 2014 World Cup – which is being hosted by Brazil.
March will see the national side play in San Marino and Montenegro to possibly confirm their participation in the big tournament.
Fans can also opt to take a tour of the famous Wembley. Costing £15, the experience allows visitors to take a look behind the scenes at England’s home dressing room, the Royal Box and the England manager’s press conference room.
