Diary

Saturday, 3 December 2011 - England will take on World Cup runners-up Netherlands in a rearranged friendly at Wembley in February. The Football Association today confirmed the new date for the match, which was due to be played in August but was postponed due to the riots which were sweeping London at the time.
Club England managing director Adrian Bevington also confirmed plans for another couple of fixtures as part of England's preparations. 'Two games at end of season being finalised - away and home before euros,' Bevington wrote on his official Twitter site.

Tuesday, 28 February 2012 - Right-back Glen Johnson is the latest player to withdraw from the England squad.  Stuart Pearce has called up Joleon Lescott as his replacement from Manchester City.

Monday, 27 February 2012 - Kyle Walker, the Tottenham Hotspur defender, is the latest player to withdraw from Stuart Pearce's squad. He suffered an ankle injury in his side's defeat to Arsenal yesterday and has failed to recover.

Meanwhile, Darren Bent has been ruled out for up to three months after rupturing ankle ligaments.  It is a huge blow to the 28-year-old's hopes of playing for England at Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.  Bent is unlikely to be available until the end of May with the European Championship kicking off in June.  Bent landed awkwardly following a challenge from Antolin Alcaraz during the second half at the DW Stadium and left the ground wearing a protective boot.

Sunday, 26 February 2012 - Wayne Rooney and Tom Cleverley have joined Darren Bent in being ruled out of the friendly match against the Netherlands.  Rooney has been suffering from a throat infection that has yet to clear up. And fellow Manchester United team-mate, Cleverley, has not yet recovered from the ankle injury he picked up in United's Europa League defeat at the hands of Ajax on Thursday night.

Saturday, 25 February 2012 - Darren Bent has been ruled out of England's friendly against the Netherlands after injuring his ankle in Aston Villa's goalless draw at Wigan.  Bent landed awkwardly following a challenge from Antolin Alcaraz during the second half at the DW Stadium and left the pitch on a stretcher.  The 28-year-old later left the ground wearing a protective boot.  "He was in agony in the dressing room," said Villa manager Alex McLeish. "He is certainly out of the England squad."  Bent received lengthy treatment on the pitch and McLeish fears his forward could be set for a long spell on the sidelines.

Thursday, 23 February 2012 - Caretaker manager Stuart Pearce has announced his first squad for the upcoming friendly with Netherlands at Wembley next Wednesday.  The squad includes uncapped Fraizer Campbell and Tom Cleverley.  Sunderland striker Campbell is receiving his first ever call-up, whilst Cleverley was picked for the postponed Dutch match in August 2011.

Manchester City's Micah Richards returns, as does Liverpool's Steven Gerrard.  Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard have not been included. John Terry has also been left out, through injury.
