BY foxsports • October 10, 2011

Italy has announced it will face Euro 2012 co-host Poland and Copa America winner Uruguay in friendlies next month.

The Azzurri will visit Poland on Nov. 11 in Wroclaw, then host Uruguay at Rome's Stadio Olimpico four days later.

Wroclaw is one of the four cities in Poland that will host matches during next year's European Championship, which Italy has already qualified for by winning Group C.

The match in Rome will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.

Italy plays its final qualifier against Northern Ireland in Pescara on Tuesday.
