The Football Association has revealed that Brazil will be England’s first opponents at the newly rebuilt Wembley on 1st June.
It is almost seven years since England last played at Wembley with the national team undertaking a tour of several club grounds while the national stadium was being rebuilt.
England have not played Brazil since their 2002 World Cup meeting in Japan with the last home game against the South Americans coming in May 2000.
“We’re delighted to be able to announce that Brazil will be the first team to take on England at the new Wembley,” FA chief executive Brian Barwick told The FA’s website.
“It’s a fantastic match to mark the team’s return to the stadium after nearly seven years on the road around the country.
“Brazil featured in some memorable matches at the old Wembley. I’m confident there will be many new memories created there for England fans over the coming years.”
