World Cup Warm-Up Plans

How England and their Group G opponents will make their final preparations for Russia 2018.

England host Nigeria at Wembley on Saturday 2 June with Gareth Southgate aiming to have named his squad before the game.

The Three Lions then head north to Leeds for a final friendly against Costa Rica on Thursday 7 June.

Tickets for both matches are available via the FA website

Opening World Cup opponents Tunisia have planned a fixture against 2010 champions Spain, to take place in Russia on 9 June, as they look to build on two victories in the recent international break that pushed them up to 14th place in the FIFA rankings, just one behind England.

Panama suffered a morale-damaging 6-0 defeat against Switzerland in their last outing and will aim to restore confidence ahead of their first-ever finals when they meet Northern Ireland at home on 29 May and Norway in Oslo on 6 June.

And group favourites Belgium will fine tune their preparations with a trio of games against Portugal, Egypt and Costa Rica at the beginning of June.
