    LONDON – The FA announced on Thursday that England will play three games immediately prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, including one against Honduras on June 4 at SunLife Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

    The European side will also play Peru on May 30 at Wembley Stadium in London and Ecuador on June 7, also at SunLife Stadium.

    "I'm delighted with the games we have been able to secure and the programme running up to the World Cup in general,” said head coach Roy Hodgson.  "I was clear to those responsible at The FA that I was looking for Central and South American opposition ahead of the tournament and that is exactly what has been delivered.”

    It will be the first-ever meeting between England and Honduras, which also qualified for the World Cup.

    The Hondurans will be making their third appearance at SunLife Stadium in less than a year.  They defeated El Salvador, 1-0, in the CONCACAF Gold Cup on July 12, 2013, and lost to Brazil, 5-0, in a friendly on November 16.
