Diary

Thursday, 9 May 2002 - Sven-Goran Eriksson's picks a provisional 23-man squad for the World Cup Finals in South Korea/Japan.  It includes the injured David Beckham.

Saturday, 11 May 2002 -
An groin injury to Steven Gerrard see's him limp off in the final Premiership match of the season means Gerrard's place in the squad is in doubt, his place will probably go to reserve and clubmate, Danny Murphy. Kieron Dyer also receives a knee injury in Newcastle United's final match against Southampton.

Monday, 13 May 2002 - The England squad fly from Luton to Dubai for a few days relaxation with their families, before they jet off to the Far East. Danny Murphy and Trevor Sinclair travel as potential replacements for the injured Steven Gerrard and Kieron Dyer, both of whom stayed at home, Gerrard to have a scan. David Beckham assured reporters that he would be fit for the first game after recovering from a broken foot, but that he would not take part in either of the warm-up games, as a precaution.

Tuesday, 14 May 2002 - Steven Gerrard officially withdraws from the squad in order to have treatment on his troublesome groin. The 21-year-old midfielder needs an operation, as yesterday's scan revealed. He will require more than a month to recover. As expected, Danny Murphy was drafted into the provisional final 23.

Wednesday, 15 May 2002 - There is light training in Dubai for the squad. David Beckham, who is trying to regain match fitness, and Nicky Butt, he is recovering from a knee injury, are involved as they do some jogging.

Friday, 17 May 2002 - Kieron Dyer flys to Dubai to join the rest of the squad in time to join their nine-hour flight to Korea. He will be assessed on Monday, before Eriksson submits his final 23-man squad to FIFA on Tuesday. Trevor Sinclair will travel to Korea too, incase Dyer does not make a sufficient recovery.
