England announce Wales Wembley friendly in October

England have announced a friendly against Wales at Wembley on October 8, with Gareth Southgate's side taking on their cross-border rivals behind closed doors, due to the coronavirus pandemic, in their first home game of 2020.

England won their last match against Wales

The last meeting between the two countries was in a group match at Euro 2016, when England secured a 2-1 victory courtesy of Daniel Sturridge's last-gasp goal.

After taking on Ryan Giggs' side, World Cup semi-finalists England face a Nations League double-header with home matches against Belgium and Denmark on October 11 and 14 respectively.

England will use the Wales fixture to stage a tribute to former internationals who have died in the past 12 months, including 1966 World Cup winners Jack Charlton, Martin Peters, Norman Hunter and Peter Bonetti.
