Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage from Wembley of England’s penultimate home friendly before the World Cup.
 
This is England’s first game since losing 1-0 to Germany at Wembley in November and Roy Hodgson has his final opportunity to look at new faces before announcing his provisional squad for Brazil. It takes place three months before England’s World Cup campaign begins against Italy in Manaus on June 14.
 
Joining Adrian in the studio at Wembley is former England player and manager Glenn Hoddle, appearing in his new role as a pundit for ITV's exclusive live coverage of England qualifying and friendly internationals. Alongside them will be regular pundit Lee Dixon, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend with Gabriel Clarke reporting from pitchside.
 
Denmark’s squad may include players well-known to English fans such as Liverpool defender Daniel Agger, Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, and Arsenal’s Nicklas Bendtner.
 
The last time the two teams played, the Three Lions travelled to Copenhagen in February 2011, when goals from Ashley Young and Darren Bent secured a 2-1 victory in the Parken Stadium.
 
The Danes’ last visit to Wembley was for a friendly in 1994 which marked Terry Venables’ first match in charge. David Platt swept a left-foot strike past goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel on 17 minutes for the only goal of a contest watched by nearly 72,000 in the old stadium.
