England finalise friendly dates before Euro 2012

Norway and Belgium will provide the opposition for England in their final two fixtures before Euro 2012. Their first outing of 2012 will come on 29th February when they face 2010 World Cup finalists Holland at Wembley.

The Three Lions then head to Oslo to take on Norway on 26th May.

Seven days later, on 2nd June, Fabio Capello's side will play host to a Belgium team that could include Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany and Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen.

That fixture will be the last before their Euro 2012 opener against France on 11th June.

"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."
