While England will play Nigeria at Wembley, they have opted to face Costa Rica at Elland Road in their final tune up game ahead of this summer's World Cup.
England's first match at the World Cup is against Tunisia on 18 June.
Gareth Southgate's side also face Costa Rica's central American neighbours Panama in Russia, with Belgium completing Group G.
The England manager said: "We're going into a World Cup where we will play African and Central American opposition, so we get that with the games against Nigeria and Costa Rica, but it's not just about the games we've got in the group but hopefully beyond that as well.
"We want to expose the team to different styles and different experiences.
Before games against Nigeria and Costa Rica, England will play Netherlands and Italy in March.
