Roy Hodgson's men have sealed a place for the next summer's world cup in Brazil after England registered a 2-0 victory over Poland at Wembley last month. Liverpool and the Three Lions skipper Steven Gerrard scored the opening goal of the match before Manchester United star Wayne Rooney doubled the lead four minutes before the break.

The victory over Poland saw England clinch the top spot in Group H with 22 points, leading second place Ukraine by a point. The hosts are unbeaten in the last five games played in all competition and Hodgson would be looking to extend his side's run when they take on Chile at Wembley.

Jorge Sampaoli

Meanwhile, Chile visit England after 15 years as the last time these two sides met on English soil saw the Three Lions suffer a 2-0 defeat in 1998. The visitors have also registered a place in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after finish the group in third spot, behind Argentina and Colombia.

Jorge Sampaoli saw his men defeat Ecuador 2-1 at home in the World Cup qualifying match in October. Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez and Gary Medel's first half goals sealed a crucial win for Chile.

What Managers Say

Roy Hodgson: "They are a very good team and will offer a major surprise to people who don't know a lot about them or South American football. Germany won't surprise anyone, in the same way as Spain, Italy or France don't, because we see their players all the time, whereas Chile is a South American side and we don't follow their qualifiers or their individuals to the same extent."

Jorge Sampaoli: "These next two friendly games, against top world sides like Brazil and England, will give us an idea of where we are and how we're going to compete in the World Cup. They are very, very important. We know those two sides are going to give us a real stiff test. Any mistakes you make, they don't let you off. For me, the World Cup starts on Friday."
