Diary

Sunday, 7 February 2010 - England will re-unite with one of their oldest rivals when they meet neighbours Wales in their UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, but they'll also face Montenegro for the very first time.  England also take on Switzerland, who were Fabio Capello's first opponents as England manager almost two years ago to the day. The other Group G opponent will be Bulgaria.

Monday, 15 March 2010 - At a meeting in Zurich the participant countries of Group G failed to reach agreement over the fixture progamme for the Euro 2012 qualification games.

Thursday, 25 March 2010 - UEFA have completed the draw for the qualification process for Euro 2012 at UEFA ExCo in Israel, with England now knowing their fixture schedule in Group G.  England begin with Bulgaria at home on Friday 3 September, before travelling to Switzerland four days later.

Sunday, 28 August 2011 - Fabio Capello names a 25-man squad for the Europan Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Wales next month.  Capello has named Manchester United defender Phil Jones in an England squad for the first time.  He was called up as Rio Ferdinand and Michael Dawson miss out.  Bolton's Gary Cahill and Chris Smalling are also named, while midfielder Tom Cleverley also gets the call.  Up front Darren Bent and Jermain Defoe are both in after an injury to Danny Welbeck who was in the last squad.

Tuesday, 30 August 2011 - Rob Green has withdrawn from the England squad for their Euro 2012 qualifiers because of a finger injury and been replaced by Frank Fielding.  Derby's Fielding was the first-choice keeper for England at the recent European Under-21 Championships.  The 23-year-old has conceded only three goals in five league games this season.  Ipswich keeper David Stockdale, who let in seven at Peterborough last week, is understudy to first-choice Joe Hart.  That means Fielding becomes the second Championship keeper in the squad.

Hart is the only has established keeper in Capello's squad following the international retirement of West Brom's Ben Foster. It is thought Green picked up the knock during West Ham's 4-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday.  Green reported for duty at England's training base at the Grove in Watford on Monday night but has now returned to his club for treatment.

Darren Bent and Joleon Lescott were absent from England's first training session today.  Aston Villa striker Bent was suffering from a slight groin injury and Manchester City defender Lescott an ankle problem.

Thursday, 1 September 2011 - Striker Darren Bent is a major doubt after he was again absent from training this afternoon.  Bent has missed the previous two days' sessions with a groin problem and he again failed to participate in the final session 24 hours before the game.

Sunday, 4 September 2011 - Darren Bent and Micah Richards have been ruled out of England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales on Tuesday because of injuries.  Bent had not been able to train in the build-up to Friday's win over Bulgaria after picking up a groin problem.  Manchester City defender Richards is believed to have a hamstring problem.  Fabio Capello has decided against calling up any replacements so close to Tuesday's match at Wembley.  Both players have returned to their clubs for treatment on their injuries.

Monday, 5 September 2011 - Leighton Baines returns to his club, Everton, after taking a knock in training. His injury is not serious, but he will miss the European Championship qualifier against Wales tomorrow night.
