Diary

Friday, 20 April 2012 - The FA is risking the wrath of Premier League managers by arranging an England 'home' friendly against Italy in August, to be held in Switzerland, at the Azzurri at the 32,000-seater Stade de Suisse in Bern on 15 August, just three days before the league season restarts. Wembley has been overlooked as a venue as the set Fifa date for summer friendlies comes too close to the climax of the Olympic Games in London, with the men's final taking place on 11 August.

Friday, 10 August 2012 - Manchester United's Michael Carrick has been recalled to the 22-man England squad for Wednesday's friendly against Italy. The 31-year-old asked not to be considered for international duty last January, having not featured at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. But with Scott Parker and Gareth Barry ruled out, Carrick has been recalled in midfield alongside Frank Lampard. Jake Livermore, Ryan Bertrand, Daniel Sturridge and Tom Cleverley are also included. Chelsea's Gary Cahill, who missed Euro 2012 with a broken jaw, is recalled along with Tottenham defender Kyle Walker, who also missed the tournament through injury.

The FA maintain Terry's omission has nothing to do with the Chelsea captain's upcoming disciplinary hearing over a charge of racial abuse against Anton Ferdinand. The governing body made clear when it charged him on 27 July over the Ferdinand incident that he would still be available to play for England.

Sunday, 12 August 2012 - Joe Hart missed Manchester City's 3-2 win over Chelsea in the traditional season-opener, the FA Community Shield, due to a minor back injury. It was enough to withdraw him from England's squad, leaving the way open for a debut for either John Ruddy or Jack Butland.  If it is Butland, he will become England's youngest ever keeper.

Daniel Sturridge also participated in the Community Shield match, but left with a toe injury.  He has also withdrawn from the squad. Roy Hodgson has not planned to bring any replacements.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have signed Everton's Jack Rodwell for an undisclosed fee. Although Everton value at Rodwell at £15 million, he has signed for £12 million, rising to £17 million.

Monday, 13 August 2012 - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the latest player to withdraw from the squad following an ankle injury.  Roy Hodgson has called up Joleon Lescott as cover.

Goalkeepers Jack Butland and John Ruddy are likely to make their England debuts, with the possibility that they will play 45 minutes each.

Tuesday, 14 August 2012 - Theo Walcott becomes the fourth and latest player to pull out of the squad. He has suffered with a thigh injury.
