Diary

Friday, 27 January 2006 - The European Championships Qualification draw is made today in Montreux. It pits England up against Croatia, Russia, Israel, Macedonia, Andorra and Estonia.

Friday, 3 March 2006 - Group E fixtures were negotiated today at a meeting between the Football Association and fellow participants in Nyon, Switzerland.

Friday, 16 March 2007 - Steve McClaren delivered no major surprises in his 23-man squad for the Euro 2008 double header against Israel and Andorra.  Manchester City's Joey Barton, Aston Villa's Gareth Barry and Chelsea's Shaun Wright-Phillips are left out after the defeat against Spain.  McClaren's main dilemma will be at left-back, where he will choose between Jamie Carragher and Phil Neville.  Ashley Cole is suspended for the Israel game and Wayne Bridge is injured.  Preston's David Nugent must await the outcome of the weekend's Premiership games before discovering if he will be promoted from the under-21 squad preparing to face Italy at Wembley.

Saturday, 17 March 2007 - Gary Neville will miss the Euro 2008 qualifiers because of an ankle ligament injury.  He received it after seven minutes following an innocuous collision with a Bolton Wanderers defender in United's 4-1 Premiership win.

Sunday, 18 March 2007 - Steven Gerrard is fit to meet up with the rest of the England squad on Tuesday following his injury scare this afternoon.  Darren Bent is doubtful after aggravating a knee injury.  Micah Richards has ongoing calf problems and their are still two cup replays to come tomorrow night.  Bent and Richards will still report for duty to be assessed by the England medical team.

Monday, 19 March 2007 - David Nugent has been called-up into the England squad for the first time to replace the injured Darren Bent.  The Preston North End striker was named in the Under-21 squad to face Italy at Wembley, but following Bent's withdrawal, will now join up with the seniors.

Gareth Barry has been drafted into the England squad.  The Aston Villa left-back, has gained a reprieve following the withdrawal of Gary Neville over the weekend.

Tuesday, 20 March 2007 - Steve McClaren is waiting as defenders Micah Richards and Jonathan Woodgate desperately try to shrug off injuries in time for the matches against Israel and Andorra.  Richards suffered a shin injury during Manchester City's Premiership win over Middlesbrough last weekend while Woodgate picked up a knock during Middlesbrough's FA Cup replay defeat at Manchester United.  "We are assessing Micah daily. We hope by the weekend he will be okay, Jonathan Woodgate picked up a knock on his knee which again we are assessing daily - We're keeping them with us and hopefully they'll be right."  McClaren also revealed that he expected both men to travel with the rest of the squad.

Wednesday, 21 March 2007 - Luke Young has also been drafted into the England squad.

Friday, 23 March 2007 - Micah Richards should be available to play for England tomorrow.  Richards was able to train today after shaking off his calf injury and McClaren will now hope he suffers no reaction to today's training session.  All available 23 players in McClaren's squad were involved in training.  Jonathan Woodgate has remained in England for treatment on a knee injury.
