Huddersfield Town defender could face England in May

Jason Davidson will be hoping for another Australia outing

FA Cup 3rd round replay - Reading v Huddersfield Town - Jason Davidson and Oliver Norwood.

Huddersfield Town defender Jason Davidson could be lining up against England in May.

Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions will take on Davidson’s Australia in one of three Euro 2016 warm-up games.

Two of the friendlies will take place away from Wembley, it is believed.

The Football Association are finalising plans to take one to the North-East of England and another to the North-West at the request of manager Hodgson, who wishes to recreate a tournament feel.

Hodgson and his assistants Ray Lewington and Gary Neville have identified their preferred opponents for the May fixtures, with Australia likely to be joined by two European teams, one of them Portugal.

The FA is expected to confirm all three opponents and venues later this month, with the final friendly before Euro 2016 is set to take place at Wembley.

Melbourne-born left-back Davidson, a summer signing from West Bromwich Albion, has won 22 caps,

Australia are in the middle of a World Cup qualification campaign, and have key games against Tajikistan and Jordan im March.

In their last meeting in February 2003, the Socceroos shocked England 3-1 at Upton Park.
