England are to play fellow World Cup finalists Germany and Brazil in back-to-back matches at Wembley in November.
Harry Kane secured qualification for Gareth Southgate's team in Russia next summer with a late tap-in in a 1-0 win over Slovenia on Thursday night.
As part of the build-up to the 2018 World Cup, England will now welcome two footballing heavyweights to assist their preparation.
Reigning world champions Germany head to London on Friday, November 10, before five-time winners Brazil arrive four days later on Tuesday, November 14, with both games kicking-off at 8pm.
With qualification wrapped up with a game to spare, England play their final game of Group F with a trip to Lithuania on Sunday.
The Three Lions began their 2017 fixtures against Germany in March, where they lost 1-0 in Dortmund thanks to Lukas Podolski's fine strike.
Germany, who have won four World Cups, last visited Wembley four years ago when Per Mertesacker scored to give them a 1-0 victory as both countries began their preparations for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
England and Germany have met 31 times with the Three Lions winning 13 of those games and drawing three.
Brazil's most recent trip to Wembley was in February 2013 when they lost 2-1 to the hosts with Frank Lampard scoring the second-half winner.
