England will be holding more than just their pre-World Cup camp in Miami, as they will be competing in a pair of friendlies against other teams bound for Brazil as well.
Relevent Sports announced on Thursday that England will take on both Ecuador and Honduras in World Cup tune-ups at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The Three Lions will first do battle with Ecuador on June 4 before taking on Honduras three days later.
“We are excited to bring two more top-quality international matches to Miami,” said Relevent Sports CEO Charlie Stillitano. “Miami continues to be a premier soccer market in this country and we have no doubt that the area’s fans will come out to watch England prepare for the 2014 World Cup against two teams that will also participate in Brazil.”
England open its 2014 World Cup campaign against Italy on June 14 in Manaus.
What do you think of England facing off against Ecuador and Honduras in Miami? Thinking about attending either match? Hoping more World Cup teams announce friendlies in the U.S.?
