LONDON(AP) England will play Norway and Belgium in its final friendly matches before the 2012 European Championship.
England's Football Association says the national team will take on Norway in Oslo on May 26 before returning home to play Belgium at Wembley on June 2.
Fabio Capello's squad will then travel to its Euro 2012 base in Krakow, Poland, ahead of group games against France, Sweden and Ukraine. The tournament starts on June 9.
Capello says "looking at the styles of France and Sweden, I feel these games are a good preparation for us.''
England has won five of its 10 matches against Norway and has only lost once in 20 games against Belgium.
