London: England will play Denmark in a pre-World Cup friendly game at Wembley Stadium on March 5 next year, the Football Association announced on Monday.

The FA had previously revealed that Roy Hodgson`s side will play friendlies against Chile and Germany next month, having secured their place at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil last week.

England last played Denmark, who have not qualified for the World Cup, in a friendly in Copenhagen in February 2011. Goals from Ashley Young and Darren Bent saw the visitors emerge with a 2-1 victory.
