The Three Lions will head to Oslo on Saturday May 26, before hosting Belgium at Wembley the following weekend.Fabio Capello, the Three Lions coach, said: "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.

"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."
