England set for Germany friendly

England look set to stage a friendly against Germany next month as part of their preparations for the World Cup.

The Football Association (FA) has been planning for the build-up to the World Cup for some time and now they can make those plans public following the team's qualification.

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington confirmed that England expect to play Germany at Wembley on November 19, four days after another friendly, which will also take place at the national stadium.

We are pretty well advanced (in negotiations for the November friendlies).

I expect to be in a position in the next 24 hours to confirm one of them. 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.

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

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