LONDON: England will play friendlies against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iceland this summer before Euro 2024, following up next month’s meetings with Brazil and Belgium.

Manager Gareth Southgate’s side will face Bosnia-Herzegovina at St James’ Park on June 3 before taking on Iceland at Wembley four days later in their final match before the tournament.

The former will be England men’s first match with Bosnia-Herzegovina and their first game in Newcastle since 2005.

England begin their Euros campaign against Serbia on 16 June.

Southgate said: “We’re really looking forward to taking the team back to the North East and to a city that is synonymous with football in this country.

“We will follow that with another special occasion at Wembley allowing our fans the opportunity to give us a final send-off before we head to Germany for another exciting summer.

“Both opponents in June are sure to provide stiff competition and play an important part in our preparation for the tournament.”

Both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iceland are yet to qualify for Euro 2024 and will attempt to do so through the play-offs, which start in March.

The Three Lions are aiming to go one better having finished as runners up, losing to Italy on penalties, in the delayed Euro 2020 in 2021.
