FSF Guides to Berlin and Brondby


England and Wales both take a breather from World Cup 2010 qualification to make the journey into mainland Europe for friendlies on Wednesday, November 19, 2008.

As ever our intrepid lot at FSF Cymru and Free Lions have been working away to provide travelling supporters with the best information around on travel plans, safety detail, matchday rules, and, of course, the best places to grab a pint or three.

England face Euro 2008 finalists Germany in Berlin, while Wales travel to Brondby to face Denmark, who currently lead Portugal, Sweden and Hungary in Group One and will be no pushovers. Having defeated Portugal 3-2 in Lisbon in early September (and Malta 3-0 last month) the Danes are currently on a high and feature a number of players plying their trade in the Premier League including the centre-back pairing of Daniel Agger and Martin Laursen.

Going forward they look dangerous too, with the lightning-quick Dennis Rommedahl supporting ex-Newcastle forward Jon Dahl Tomasson and Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner.

This is the second friendly in just over a year that England have faced Germany in. Frank Lampard's early goal at Wembley against the Germans in August 2007 didn't stop England slumping to a 2-1 defeat, who went on to reach the final at Euro 2008. The less said about England and Euro 2008 the better. Under Capello, however, England appear to be making far lighter work of qualifying.
