England set for Wembley crowd low

Only 50,000 fans are expected to turn out to watch England take on Sweden at Wembley on Tuesday night - the lowest attendance since the stadium re-opened in 2007.

• Zamora eyes England's 2,000th goal
• Terry 'completely focused' on playing
• Sweden boss: England can win Euros
• Mancini: England can win Euro 2012
• Sturridge set for England debut

The FA have revealed that tickets sales are down by nearly 40,000 compared with those for England's 1-0 victory over world champions Spain on Saturday.

However, the match against Sweden will still be one of the most watched matches for the second part of an international double-header.

Wembley's current lowest attendance figure is 57,897 for England's 6-0 win over Andorra in June 2009, a figure adversely affected by a tube strike.

Sweden will be backed by a 3,500-strong travelling support for the first friendly double-header since England manager Fabio Capello took charge.

The last time fewer than 50,000 watched England in a home game was for Steve McClaren's first match as manager when 45,864 saw a 4-0 win against Greece at Old Trafford.

The last sub-50,000 crowd to see England at Wembley was 38,535 for a November friendly against the Czech Republic in 1998, when Glenn Hoddle's team won 2-0.

Tickets for Tuesday night's encounter will be available at Wembley from noon.
