04 March 2016, 19:01

London - England will prepare for Euro 2016 with warm-up friendlies against Turkey, Australia and Portugal, the English Football Association announced on Friday.

"I'm happy that we have been able to secure three challenging opponents that will help us prepare for the tournament," England boss Roy Hodgson said.

"Since the Euro group draw in Paris last December, The FA has worked hard to put together a programme of games around the country and we're looking forward to playing in the north-west and north-east of the country before the final home game at Wembley."
