England take on Peru at the Wembley Stadium on Friday for their final World Cup warm-up game at home.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 8pm BST. Live coverage is on ITV 1 and UTV. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


England will play their final game on home soil before the World Cup. Roy Hodgson then takes his men to the US for the remaining two warm-up games against Ecuador and Honduras in Miami before they leave for Brazil.

The 66-year-old boss has already declared the 23-man squad he will be taking for the main event in June, comprising five Liverpool players. The game against Peru will certainly be a stage for the chosen ones to prove that they were rightly called upon to represent their nation at the World Cup.

A side captained by Steven Gerrard managed to beat Denmark 1-0 courtesy of a header from Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge. Hodgson will be keen to give his probable starters a run till half-time and bring on the remaining party to prove their worthiness in the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Peru come into this game on the back of a six-match win-less run in all competitions. They finished seventh in the table for the Conmebol World Cup qualifiers, 10 points behind the last available berth clinched by fifth-placed Uruguay.

A side comprising of youth and experience has been called up by the newly appointed manager Pablo Bengoechea. The 49-year-old former Uruguayan midfielder has not included stellar names like Jefferson Farfan, Claudio Pizarro and Nolberto Solano for the game in London.

Although the South American outfit will not be taking part in the World Cup, Bengoechea will be hoping that his players will chip in a formidable performance against the Three Lions.

Hodgson will be hoping that all of his 23 players come unscathed from this fixture and remain fully fit for their opening game against Italy in Group D.

What Managers Say

Roy Hodgson: "The training sessions have been very impressive and if I could bottle what I'm seeing it and release it on 14 June I'd be very happy. This is the biggest moment of my career. I feel more at home with the players now than two years ago at the Euro. The performance of the players in the last 10 days has been good. There are so many of them that are so keen to stake their claim so it won't be an easy choice and that's how I expected it to be."

Pablo Bengoechea: "In South America, there is coverage of the Premier League during the week and certainly every weekend so we are very much aware of those players. I know the England manager has freshened up the squad with some new faces in comparison to the players who got England to the World Cup. I want to emphasise though that this is a preparatory game for both England and for us. We hope we are up to the task but it's all about getting England into good shape ahead of the World Cup."
