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.

Tuesday, 21 May 2002 - England draw 1-1 with the Korean Republic.

Wednesday, 22 May 2002 - A foot injury to Danny Murphy towards the end of a training session means he will miss the World Cup. He becomes the third member of the squad to break his foot, following Gary Neville and David Beckham. Murphy has broken the second toe of his left foot.  Trevor Sinclair, originally placed on stand-by because of fears for Kieron Dyer's injury, is called up to replace Danny Murphy.  Under-21 captain David Dunn and Alan Smith are placed on stand-by should they be required.

Sunday, 26 May 2002 - Trevor Sinclair arrives in Japan in time to take part in Englands draw with Cameroon. Robbie Fowler's last minute equaliser did ask more questions than it answered. But Eriksson will be relieved that there were no injuries suffered.

Tuesday, 28 May 2002 - David Beckham resumes full training in preperation for the opening match with Sweden on Sunday.

Sunday, 2 June 2002 - England began their World Cup campaign with an unconvincing draw against a Sweden team who dominated the second half and could easily have snatched victory.

Friday, 7 June 2002 - England recorded a famous win over old foes Argentina to take a giant step towards World Cup qualification from Group F.  Owen Hargreaves suffered with an injury of his shin in the first twenty minutes, he will likely be unavailable for the final group match against Nigeria.

Tuesday, 12 June 2002 - England laboured to an uninspiring goalless draw against Nigeria at Osaka - yet it proved enough to put Eriksson's men into the last sixteen. The highlight of the afternoon happened elsewhere when Sweden knocked out fierce rivals Argentina. England will now face Denmark in Saturday's match after they finished second in Group F. Sweden will face Senegal.

Saturday, 17 June 2002 - England were given an easy passage into the World Cup quarter-finals after a three-goal blitz against Denmark in the first half. Danish goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen bundled in the first goal before Michael Owen and Emile Heskey broker their tournament ducks with well-struck shots. They will next meet the winner of Monday's clash between Belgium and Brazil.
