Notes

Monday, 19 May 2003 - Gareth Barry has been called into England's squad for the summer internationals.  Barry's original omission was a surprise with England's two first-choice left-backs not travelling to South Africa for Thursday's friendly.  Ashley Cole and Wayne Bridge will be absent because of their participation in the FA Cup final - but will join up with the squad for the summer's other two games. Eriksson has also been hit by the withdrawal through injury of Chelsea's John Terry. Terry has a thigh injury and will take no part in the South Africa game, although he is hoping to be available for Serbia & Montenegro and Slovakia.

Monday, 12 May 2003 - England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson named Everton's injured striker Wayne Rooney in his 25-man squad for three upcoming matches. Rooney suffered knee ligament damage in Everton's final match of the season against Manchester United on Sunday, and could yet be ruled out of their first game.  Players involved in next Saturday's FA Cup final between Arsenal and Southampton will not travel to South Africa but will join the squad on their return.
