As part of their World Cup preparations, England will face off with Chile and Germany at Wembley next month. The fixtures were confirmed today with England facing Chile on the 15th of November, and taking on Germany just four days later.
Both Germany and Chile have already qualified for the tournament next summer. Germany dominated group C winning 9 of their ten games and remaining unbeaten en-route to their 28 point total, 8 points clear of second place Sweeden. Chile placed third in the CONMEBOL qualification, trailing only Argentina and Colombia to qualify quite comfortably.
England have not faced Germany since the second round of the 2010 World Cup, where they were defeated 4-1. In South Africa Germany dominated England showing superior quality on the ball and much higher fitness levels. It will be interesting to see how well England cope with this impressive young Germany outfit in their own back yard.
England have faced Chile 5 times in their history, winning 2, drawing 2 and losing just the 1 contest. The last meeting came in 1998 in an International friendly at Wembley Stadium, Chile ran out comofrtable 2-0 winners on the day and England will hope to get back on top in the head-to-head fixture when they meet on November 15th
