England v Italy
Under-21 International Friendly
12.30pm, Saturday 24 March 2007
England Under-21s will play Italy in front of 60,000 fans - a new record - after tickets for the first game at Wembley sold out in less than six hours.
Tickets went on sale at 3pm on Monday were all snapped up in quick time. The result is a record crowd, 25,000 more than the previous best set in November 2005 when England drew 1-1 with France at White Hart Lane.
The match will be the second 'ramp-up' event at the new stadium with a 60,000 capacity in order to test facilities and obtain a General Safety Certificate from the London Borough of Brent.
It will also act as an important game for the England side as they build-up to this summer's UEFA European U21 Championship in Holland. The Three Lions, unbeaten for over a year, take on Italy again in their second group game in June.
