Diary

Friday, 25 January 2002 - The European Championship qualification draw puts second-seeded England in Group Seven with Turkey, as well as Slovakia, FYR Macedonia and Liechtenstein. But no fixtures can be finalised.

Monday, 11 March 2002 - In Istanbul, the Group Seven representatives fail, after five hours, to find a resolution in creating a fixture list.  Eventually the teams agreed to let UEFA resolve the fixture list by drawing lots.

Thursday, 28 March 2002 - UEFA conduct a random draw settling all fixtures.

Thursday, 29 August 2002 - England's crucial European Championship qualifier against Turkey next April will take place at Sunderland's Stadium of Light, it has been announced.

Friday, 6 September 2002 - The BBC have secured the rights to televise live England's overseas Euro 2004 qualifiers against Slovakia on October 12 and Liechtenstein on March 29 next year.

Friday, 28 February 2003 - Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Ashley Cole will be out of action for six weeks following an hernia operation yesterday - ruling him out of England's Euro 2004 qualifiers against Liechtenstein and Turkey. The initial prognosis was Cole could miss three to six weeks of the season. However Wenger confirmed any quick comeback was unlikely. "Ashley is set to be out for six weeks," he said. "I don't know many players who have played before six weeks. He could maybe make it in five, but most players who start too early have a setback."

Monday, 10 March 2003 - Arsenal, England and the Football Association yesterday began dealing with the myriad of headaches induced by the draw with Chelsea. Arsenal called for FA Cup replays to be abolished while the tie's new date forced England to scrap Sven-Goran Eriksson's get-together with leading managers. The FA launched an investigation into the coins thrown at Thierry Henry, who underwent treatment on a calf problem. One match, many consequences. Arsenal's manager, Arsene Wenger, joined his vice-chairman, David Dein, in a campaign to end replays. Their team must now travel to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, 25 March, forty-eight hours after facing Everton in the Premiership and 36 hours before David Seaman and Sol Campbell fly out to Liechtenstein for England's Euro 2004 qualifier.

Tuesday, 18 March 2003 - England could be without Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman and defender Sol Campbell for next week's important Euro 2004 double header against Liechtenstein and Turkey. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger delivered that warning to England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson as his squad arrived in Valencia for Wednesday night's decisive Champions League Group B clash, and his message to the Swede was: "The situation looks bad." Seaman did not travel to Spain and Campbell has only a 40% chance of being fit according to Wenger.
Sven-Goran Eriksson will include Chelsea defender John Terry in his squad. Terry has been playing regularly for the Stamford Bridge club in recent weeks because of an injury to Marcel Desailly and Chelsea coach Claudio Ranieri has recognised his leadership qualities by giving him the captain's armband in the Frenchman's absence. Barking-born Terry has already been compared to Tony Adams at the same age and has matured considerably since his much-publicised court case following allegations of affray at a London club 14 months ago.

Monday, 24 March 2003 - Eriksson names a 25-man squad to take on Liechtenstein and Turkey in the European Championship qualification matches.

Thursday, 27 March 2003 - Sol Campbell withdraws from the team to face Liechtenstein through an achilles injury, but is hopeful to face Turkey on Wednesday.
