England are to play friendly internationals against Germany and Brazil, with both matches taking place at Wembley Stadium in November.

England have arranged friendlies with both Germany and Brazil as the Three Lions begin their preparations for the 2018 World Cup.

On Thursday night, Gareth Southgate's team confirmed their place in Russia with a 1-0 victory over Slovenia, with Harry Kane's 94th-minute goal eventually sealing the win in North London.

The Football Association had already tentatively arranged for two of world football's superpowers to come to Wembley Stadium in November and with England's progression now confirmed, the governing body is now in a position to formally reveal the two glamour fixtures.

On Friday, November 10, world champions Germany will be the visitors to the national stadium before Brazil line up against England four days later on November 14.

Both matches come less than three weeks before the nations find out their opposition for the World Cup, which will be staged in June and July.
