The match against Italy on Saturday 11 June will be played with closed doors as part of Uefa’s punishment for crowd disturbance at the Euro 2020 finals.

But the clash with Hungary three days later is set to be open to fans.

The fixtures will be part of England’s Uefa Nations League campaign.

They were placed alongside Italy, Hungary and Germany in Group 3 of League A.

England manager Gareth Southgate said: “While Wembley is our home, we would love to put the team on the road if we can, especially before a big tournament.

“The year 2022 promises to be an exciting adventure for England fans and it is a pleasure that one of English football’s famous stadiums will be a part of it.

“I know from my time in charge of my Under-21 team how much a Molineux crowd embrace the experience of international football, so we look forward to returning to Wolverhampton in June.”

England’s men’s team have played at Molineux four times – although the stadium will be a bit different at that point.

The last time the senior team visited the Black Country Stadium was during the December 1956 win over Denmark.

The Three Lions will face Switzerland and Ivory Coast in friendlies next month before the Nations League kicks off in June.
