Sir Trevor Brooking believes England's match against Chile next month is the ideal preparation for a World Cup in South America.
Chile are expected to bring with them Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez, plus Cardiff City midfielder Gary Medel, Wigan Athletic winger Jean Beausejour and Nottingham Forest defender Gonzalo Jara - as well as a host of players from Europe's other top leagues.
And Brooking says Chile's patient playing style and rugged defending will be a good test of England's progress towards next summer's Finals in Brazil.
"Chile will be good because it just gives that experience of playing against a South American side," said The FA's director of football development.
"At some stage if you are going to be able to advance in the World Cup then you are going to play one or two of them."
Brooking said he expects England manager Roy Hodgson to field some of the Three Lions' emerging talents against Jorge Sampaoli's side.
"Ross Barkley was in the squad for the last two qualifiers and I am sure he will get his chance. We also want Jack Wilshere to play regularly to get him up to his best next summer," he said.
"Then there is Phil Jones and Chris Smalling. If something happens to Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill we will need to have given those players games."
