Old Trafford will host England's final two friendlies ahead of the World Cup after the Football Association confirmed that the new Wembley will not be ready in time.

Sven Goran Eriksson's men will now be in Manchester to face Hungary on 30 May and Jamaica on 3 June.

Around 76,000 fans will pack Old Trafford following the completion of the two corner quadrants which are set to open before the end of the season.

"We are delighted the FA have chosen to stage these two matches at the biggest club ground in the country," said a club spokesman.

The FA also stated that this year's FA Cup final will now be held at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium following the delay to the construction of the new national stadium.

Meanwhile, United have confirmed that they are in talks about the possibility of playing in South Africa as part of their pre-season programme ahead of the 2006/07 campaign.

"We are in discussions, but nothing has been finalised," added a club spokesman.

Yipee. If its a friendly, why should it be at old Trafford. 4 out of 5 qualifiers were there, so why not move around the country a litte.

You can't blame them, Old Trafford is the best ground in the UK and always will be.

Why did they bother appointing bloody aussies to do it? :D :rolleyes:
