Diary

Thursday, 2 December 2004 - England will face Denmark in a friendly next August to warm-up for their World Cup qualifiers the following month. Sven-Göran Eriksson's men travel to Copenhagen on 17 August ahead of their Group Six trips to Wales and Northern Ireland in September. "Denmark have a deserved reputation for attractive, attacking football.  I am expecting a difficult game which will be excellent preparation for our final qualifying matches." Denmark coach Morten Olsen added: "England are an outstanding opponent. "The match is against the most traditional football nation in the world and a team, which always delivers a 100% effort."

Saturday, 13 August 2005 - Sven-Göran Eriksson has included Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnson in his England squad for the friendly against Denmark on 17 August in Copenhagen.  Johnson has expressed fears that staying at relegated Palace would endanger his England chances.  But there was no place for Manchester United striker Alan Smith.  Birmingham City's Matthew Upson is called up with Sol Campbell, Ledley King and Wayne Bridge all injured, while Norwich City goalkeeper Robert Green is included.  Injury means Liverpool's Peter Crouch and Newcastle United's Kieron Dyer are both absent but Jermain Defoe is called up.  Michael Carrick, who also performed well in the US, retains his spot among the midfielders.

Sunday, 14 August 2005 - Eriksson has replaced the injured Andy Johnson with Charlton Athletic's Darren Bent.  "Andy is injured, we got a late phone call that he has a hamstring injury, so Darren Bent is in."  Eriksson revealed Manchester United's Alan Smith asked not to be included so he could play for the club's reserves.  "Alan has had such little football he said he would rather get 90 minutes under his belt on Tuesday for United's reserves."

Tuesday, 16 August 2005 - Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has pulled out of the England squad because of a knee injury.  "Shaun is not here; he is in England as he has a swollen knee," said Eriksson.  The Swede revealed Jermain Defoe will start in preparation for September's World Cup qualifying double-header.  Eriksson said he would not pick Michael Owen because he is suspended for the Wales game following two bookings.  "I am going to play the best team which can play against Wales so that means Michael Owen won't start.  It's not a difficult decision - this game is to prepare for Wales and Northern Ireland." 
Darren Bent took part in his first senior England training session on Monday despite being troubled by a dead leg during Charlton's win at Sunderland on Saturday.  "Darren has pace, good technique, he can score goals and has been one of the best players in the Under-21 side.  With Peter Crouch and Andy Johnson injured it was natural to take a look at him. He did a good session on Monday so we'll see if he comes on."
