England will play friendlies against Ecuador and Honduras in Miami this week before heading to Brazil ahead of their first game against Italy in Manaus on June 14.

Although Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not played since April 20 due to a groin injury, the Arsenal midfielder is set to feature in both games.

Since failing to qualify for the 1994 World Cup, England has never made it through to the semifinals, a track record national team coach Roy Hodgson will be looking to improve this summer.

Wayne Rooney’s team-mates play Ecuador on Wednesday and Honduras on Saturday .
