London:

England will play Sweden next month in a friendly international as manager Fabio Capello prepares his side for next year's European Championship finals, it was confirmed on Thursday.

The English Football Association confirmed the friendly against fellow Euro 2012 qualifiers Sweden would take place at Wembley on November 15.

The Swedes booked their ticket to Poland and Ukraine after defeating Holland 3-2 on Tuesday to finish as the best group stage runners-up.

The match will be the 22nd meeting between the countries, and the first since a 2-2 draw in Cologne during the first round of the 2006 World Cup.

England, who also face world champions Spain next month, have not beaten Sweden at Wembley since 1968.
