England set to take on Germany at new Wembley

The Football Association are believed to have lined up a mouth-watering friendly for England against World Cup semi-finalists Germany at Wembley next year.

Germany were the last country to play at the old Wembley before it was pulled down, current Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win for the visitors six years ago which marked the end of Kevin Keegan's reign as manager.

The three-times world champions were expected to be among the candidates to officially open the 90,000 stadium next spring.

Instead, sources in Germany suggest they will provide the first opposition for Steve McClaren's men on August 22 next season, with another high-profile opponent likely to play in the first senior international at the stadium, which should be played in June prior to England's Euro 2008 qualifier in Estonia.

The FA, who after previous missed deadlines, are anxious not to set an official date for the opening of the new stadium or state which games will be played there.

'Nothing has been confirmed on any fixtures at Wembley yet,' said an FA spokesman.

Earlier this month it was confirmed England would play what seems certain to be their last `on-the-road' international against Spain at Old Trafford on February 7.
