Diary

Saturday, 5 February 2005 - England coach Sven-Göran Eriksson has called up Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnson and Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing for the first time.  The pair join up with the rest of the 24-man squad for the friendly against Netherlands on Wednesday at Villa Park.  Chelsea defender Glen Johnson and Newcastle's Kieron Dyer have both been recalled by Eriksson for the game.  Rio Ferdinand, Sol Campbell, Alan Smith and Darius Vassell all miss the match through injury.

Sunday, 6 February 2005 - Birmingham City defender Matthew Upson has pulled out of the squad.  Upson was in line to feature from the start at Villa Park in the absence of Rio Ferdinand and Sol Campbell.  But the 25-year-old missed the Blues' defeat at Manchester United with a hamstring injury, which will now keep him out of the game against the Dutch. 
Tottenham Hotspur defender Ledley King is suffering from a slight injury.  He will be assessed by England medical staff when he joins up with the squad on Monday and whilst everyone is still hopeful he will be available for selection, Wes Brown will now join the squad to provide extra defensive cover.

Monday, 7 February 2005 - Chelsea's John Terry and Wayne Bridge have pulled out of the England squad.  Terry's absence gives Eriksson a headache at centre-back ahead of the friendly at Villa Park.  Eriksson has drafted in Manchester United's Phil Neville as cover.  Terry, the captain of Chelsea as they push for the Premiership title, would have been a certain starter in the absence of Campbell and Ferdinand.
England's defensive worries have increased following the withdrawal of Tottenham Hotspur's Ledley King.  Wes Brown and Jamie Carragher are likely to be the makeshift partnership.
