The fixture, to help celebrate the Football Association's 150th anniversary year, is the first time the two countries have played each other in 14 years.
Brown skippered Celtic to the last-16 of the UEFA Champions League last season, where they were knocked out by Juventus, but the midfielder claims that the Wembley showdown will eclipse that honour.
"It is going to be a great occasion taking the lads out at Wembley," the 28-year-old said.
"It is going to be huge. It is definitely right up there, even bigger than taking Celtic out for the last-16 of the Champions League.
"It is going to be hard, high-tempo and a great occasion for the fans as well and I'm sure the Tartan Army will be there in their thousands.
"I think there is a lot more pressure on them to beat us.
"We are the underdogs. But we have got great players and match winners as well so we are all looking forward to it."
