Diary

Tuesday, 25 March 2008 - England will travel to the Caribbean this summer to face Trinidad and Tobago, with the friendly match coming four days after the Three Lions meet USA at Wembley.  The match will form part of a series of activities celebrating the centenary of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation. The game is just one of a varied list of events happening throughout the year. In addition to various coaching seminars and courses, Trinidad and Tobago will take on Puerto Rico and Panama in friendly matches, as well as Bermuda - the first World Cup 2010 qualifier for the Soca Warriors. "One People, One Passion, One Game!" is the theme for the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation's Year of Centennial Celebrations that will highlight everything that has happened since the formation of the TTFF. CONCACAF President, and Special Adviser to the TTFF, Jack Warner, has also confirmed that both Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy will be involved in the match against England, while Trinidad and Tobago Head Coach Francisco Maturana expressed his excitement looking ahead to the friendly with England.

Sunday, 11 May 2008 - Fabio Capello has named a 31-man squad to face USA at Wembley, and travel to Trinidad and Tobago for England's final match of the season four days later.  Joe Hart receives his first call up to the England squad after a strong season with Manchester City, while there are six further players who along with Hart are yet to earn an England senior cap.  Among those players are West Ham United forward Dean Ashton, defenders Phil Jagielka, David Wheater and Stephen Warnock, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone and Gabriel Agbonlahor.  A quartet of players from newly-crowned Premier League Champions Manchester United are included, with Wes Brown, Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Wayne Rooney all involved during Sunday's title-clinching win at Wigan Athletic.  If Joe Cole is involved against USA at Wembley it would be a 50th cap for the Chelsea midfielder.

Friday, 23 May 2008 - Michael Owen is likely to miss the forthcoming friendlies because of a virus.  Owen did not report for England duty on Friday and is not expected to play against the USA at Wembley or in Port of Spain the following Sunday.  Jermaine Jenas is also out with an ankle problem.

Saturday, 24 May 2008 - Fabio Capello has brought in Peterborough United goalkeeper Joe Lewis into his squad after Chris Kirkland returned to Wigan Athletic due to a back injury.  The FA said Kirkland looks set to miss Wednesday's friendly against the United States after having muscle spasms in his back.  Lewis and Peterborough won promotion to League One this season. The 20-year-old became Peterborough's record signing in January when he signed for �400,000 from Norwich. "This is fantastic news for Joe and Peterborough United. It will be a fantastic experience for him." Peterborough director of football Barry Fry said.  If Lewis makes his debut, he will join a small group of players including Johnny Byrne, Peter Taylor and Steve Bull who have played for England while plying their trade outside the top two divisions.

Wednesday, 28 May 2008 - England beat the U.S. 2-0, with goals from John Terry and Steven Gerrard.

Thursday, 29 May 2008 - Fabio Capello has excused seven players involved in last week's Champions League final from Sunday's match in Trinidad and Tobago.  Chelsea's John Terry, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Joe Cole, plus Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Owen Hargreaves and Wes Brown are out.  Rio Ferdinand is expected to captain the side as Capello continues his search for a permanent skipper.  Gareth Barry may also have a chance to stake his claim for the armband.

Saturday, 31 May 2008 - David Beckham has been chosen by Fabio Capello to captain what will be a relative inexperienced side tomorrow night.  It is Beckham's 59th time at wearing the armband, the first since the World Cup finals in 2006.
