England will play Norway and Belgium in their final two friendly internationals before Euro 2012, it was announced Thursday.

Fabio Capello's side play Norway in Oslo on Saturday, May 26 and seven days later, on June 2, welcome Belgium to Wembley.

England will then travel to their Polish tournament base of Krakow, before their Euro 2012 campaign opens against France in Donetsk, Ukraine, on June 11.

"Since the draw in December we have been able to work towards these matches and the appropriate opposition, and I'm very happy with these two games," said Capello.

"In the draw we face one of the hosts, Ukraine, which will be a difficult atmosphere to replicate, but looking at the styles of France and Sweden I feel these games are a good preparation for us."
