Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha is set to make international history this season.

The FA have announced England will play Ivory Coast for the first time in March.

And Zaha can became the first England international to appear AGAINST the Three Lions in an official friendly at Wembley on March 29.

Zaha, 29, won two England caps under Roy Hodgson.

He made his debut as a replacement for Raheem Sterling in the 4-2 friendly defeat in Sweden in November 2012 and was then a late substitute for Theo Walcott in the 3-2 Wembley win over Scotland the following August.

But Abidjan-born Zaha later took advantage of FIFA rules allowing him to switch to the land of his birth because he had not played a competitive game for the Three Lions.

Zaha has now earned 23 caps for Ivory Coast, scoring five goals, and is currently involved in the Africa Cup of Nations where he has featured three times and bagged an assist.
