Diary

Monday, 6 March 2006 - The FA today announced that England will take on Netherlands in an international on Wednesday 15 November. The Ajax Arena in Amsterdam will be the venue for the prestigious match which follows on from a string of Euro 2008 qualifiers in September and October and will be England's final international of 2006.

Friday, 10 November 2006 - Manchester City defender Micah Richards has been named in the 28-man England squad for the friendly against Netherlands.  The 18-year-old defender has made three appearances for the England Under-21s.  Richards, Tottenham defender Michael Dawson and Watford keeper Ben Foster are the only uncapped players in the squad ahead of Wednesday's friendly.  Kieran Richardson is the only player omitted from the squad that contested the Euro 2008 qualifiers against Macedonia and Croatia.

Saturday, 11 November 2006 - Gary Neville has pulled out of the England squad. The 31-year-old right back picked up a calf injury during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday night.  "It's unfortunate. It's a calf muscle injury that keeps recurring," said United manager Alex Ferguson.  "It is a concern. Fluid keeps getting into the muscle. We will leave him out for a couple of weeks so we can get him back to the level he needs."  Neville's withdrawal increases the chances of 18-year-old Manchester City defender Micah Richards earning a first cap.

Sunday, 12 November 2006 - Five more players have pulled out of the England squad. Steve McClaren has now lost striker Darren Bent (hamstring), midfielders Stewart Downing (groin) and Scott Parker (groin) and Spurs defender Ledley King (knee) to injury.  Wigan keeper Chris Kirkland has also been given leave of absence as his wife is due to give birth this week.  McClaren has opted not to draft any more players into his group and, in Kirkland's absence, just two goalkeepers will make the trip to the Dutch capital.

Monday, 13 November 2006 - Jermaine Jenas and Aaron Lennon have become the latest players to pull out of the England squad.  Lennon has a knee injury, Jenas has a calf injury and will be replaced by Manchester United winger Kieran Richardson.
