England are set to host World Cup rivals Germany at Wembley next month, as the prepare for their Brazil 2014 challenge. 

Roy Hodgson's side booked their ticked to Brazil on Tuesday night, after goals from Manchester United star Wayne Rooney and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard gave the Three Lions a 2-0 win over Poland. 

The team had dispatched of Montenegro 4-1 just four days earlier and needed a win to guarantee their World Cup spot. 

England, who beat Germany 4-2 in the 1966 final to win their only world title, will face the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm on November 19.

The three-time World cup winners have a host of players who ply their trade in the English Premier League at the moment - with Tottenham's Lewis Holtby, Chelsea's Andre Schurrle and Arsenal duo Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski all based in London. 

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington is hopeful of confirming one of the November fixtures today: 

"I don't think it is any great secret that we are expecting to play Germany in the second of the two games next month," said Bevington.

"That would conclude the 150th anniversary celebrations of the FA so it would be a great way to end the year.

"We are in talks with non-European opponents at the moment over the first game, which would be on Friday (15 November) or Saturday (16 November). That is still to be confirmed.

"We had been looking to play Uruguay in the first game, but they are now in the World Cup play-offs so we are speaking with other opponents."

England could be drawn in the same World Cup group as Germany - after missing out on a top seed place. 

They also have the prospect of a group match against the likes of Brazil and Spain, but will use Germany - who knocked England out of the 2010 World Cup - as their practice.
