MILAN (AP) - Perugia’s Renato Curi Stadium will host Italy’s last friendly before the World Cup.

Italy plays Luxembourg on June 4, four days after another warmup against Ireland in London, at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

The Azzurri’s last match in Perugia was a victory against South Africa 13 years ago.

Italy has won all eight of its matches against Luxembourg. The teams were supposed to face each other in Parma in May 2012, but the match was called off following an earthquake in the region.

Italy’s first World Cup match is against England on June 14. It also plays Costa Rica and Uruguay in Group D.
