Text size Aa Aa

France will be looking to upset favourites Germany, when the two European heavyweights square off in Bremen on Wednesday.

Die Mannschaft will be without Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger in what will be a further test of how far Les Bleus have progressed since Laurent Blanc took over following a poor 2010 World Cup campaign.

Meanwhile England will face a tough test against the Netherlands at Wembley.

Up against the top scorers from the Premier League and Bundesliga, England caretaker manager Stuart Pearce knows that his side will have to remain focused throughout the 90 minutes.

In the other games, reigning world champions Spain will meet Venezuela in Malaga while the National Stadium in Warsaw will get its first test when European Championship co-host Poland faces Portugal.
