Popular Rangers stars Glen Kamara and Filip Helander should soon face off in an international friendly clash.

Kamara has been named in Finland’s squad for Euro 2020 following a stellar season in midfield for the Light Blues.

He made a whopping 51 appearances in all competitions, including starts in all 13 European fixtures, and should be a key man for his country at their first-ever major tournament.

Meanwhile, Helander has made the cut for Sweden, despite missing the last three matches of the season due to an injury.

He made 31 appearances for the Gers across all competitions, scoring three goals and crucially, contributing to many clean sheets.

The 28-year-old started Sweden’s last two competitive fixtures and will be hoping to line up alongside Victor Lindelof at the heart of defence at the Euros.

The two popular Rangers stars will have opportunities to impress in warm-up matches ahead of the tournament and they look set to turn out against each other when Sweden host Finland at the Friends Arena in Stockholm on 29th May.

Their respective managers will likely try out a few things in the friendly, but the result will no doubt be brought up in Rangers pre-season by the victor.

Sweden then complete their major tournament preparations with a second home friendly against Armenia, while Finland will take on Estonia in Helsinki.

Helander and co. are in Group E alongside Spain, Slovakia and Poland, while Kamara and co. will battle it out with Belgium, Denmark and Russia in Group B.
