Liverpool legend Sami Hyypia will be in the England dugout on Friday.
The Daily Mail says Bayer Leverkusen coach Hyypia joined Roy Hodgson at the FAâ€™s St Georgeâ€™s Park training complex on Tuesday and will be with him as England attempt to close in on a place in next summerâ€™s World Cup finals.
As rookie boss of Bundesliga side Bayer, Hyypia has to spend time on the road, as part of his Pro A licence course, and asked his former Finland boss Hodgson if he could track him through the final stages of Englandâ€™s qualifying campaign.
Hyypia will study Hodgsonâ€™s methods on the training pitch this week and is hoping for permission to join him on the bench, against Montenegro on Friday and Poland next Tuesday.
