England line up friendlies

Published Add your comment

England will face Norway and Belgium in their final two friendlies before Euro 2012.

Fabio Capello's men will head to Oslo to take on Norway on Saturday, May 26 in the same Ullevaal Stadion in which they famously lost to the Scandinavians in 1981, prompting Bjorge Lillelien's memorable commentary that ended with the immortal line: "Your boys took a hell of a beating."

Seven days later, on June 2, England entertain a Belgium side that could contain Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany and Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelen, in their final warm-up game before heading to their base in Krakow ahead of the opening Euro 2012 encounter with France in Donetsk on June 11.
