England-Spain friendly at Wembley in November

LONDON (AP) Sam Allardyce will get a tough early test in his tenure as England manager when the national team takes on Spain in a friendly on Nov. 15.

Coming off an embarrassing last-16 exit to Iceland at the European Championship, England will play four World Cup qualifying games under Allardyce before Spain visits Wembley Stadium.

Allardyce replaced Roy Hodgson as England manager. Spain has also hired a new coach since Euro 2016 - Julen Lopetegui, as a replacement for Vicente del Bosque.
