England to face Egypt in warm-up

England have confirmed they will play Egypt at Wembley Stadium in a World Cup warm-up match on Wednesday, March 3.

Coach Fabio Capello sees the game as a perfect warm-up for the date with Algeria in the finals. Algeria qualified after finished level on top of their group with Egypt, both sides having an identical record, and then winning a play-off.

England have not played Egypt since the nations were drawn together at Italia '90, when a Mark Wright goal gave Bobby Robson's men the victory.

Trusted assistant Franco Baldini is likely to travel to the African Cup of Nations next month to take in Algeria's matches. They have been drawn against Malawi, Mali and Angola in the group stage.

England's remaining warm-up matches, in May, are likely to be against Mexico and Japan.

Meanwhile, the FA have denied they want John Terry stripped of the England captaincy after he was caught up in a News of the World sting on Sunday.

An FA spokesman said: ''Only Fabio Capello manages the England team and he has made no comment on this matter.''
