Football: Hoddle brings back England B internationals
Tuesday 27 January 1998
The fixtures will be the first at this level since a 2-0 Anfield win over the Republic of Ireland in 1994 by an England team which included Chris Sutton, Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler.
West Bromwich's Hawthorns ground will host the game against Chile on 10 February, 24 hours before the senior side take on their fellow World Cup finalists.
Hoddle said the decision to reintroduce this level was crucial for France."We want to give more experience to five or six of the under-21 players and maybe five or six over-age players who we feel have a chance of making the World Cup," Hoddle said.
