Diary

Tuesday, 15 November 2011 - England will take on Sweden in a friendly next year to mark the opening of a new national stadium in Stockholm.  In a reciprocal deal, the FA have agreed to send a team to be the first opponents at the new 50,000-capacity Swedbank Arena on November 14 next year. The new stadium, which is still under construction, boasts a retractable roof and is located just outside of central Stockholm in Solna municipality. By next November England will be under new management as Capello plans to step down at the end of the Euro finals in Poland and Ukraine.

Thursday, 8 November 2012 - Jack Wilshere has been recalled to the England squad for next week's friendly against Sweden. Wilshere, 20, only recently made his first team return after being out injured for more than a year. There is a first call up for Everton midfielder Leon Osman, 31, while Liverpool duo Raheem Sterling, 17, and Jonjo Shelvey, 20, are also included.  Reds captain Steven Gerrard is in line to become the sixth England player to earn his 100th international cap. The squad features 10 changes to the one announced for the World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Poland.

Ashley Cole, also on 99 caps, is left out after missing Chelsea's Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday because of a hamstring injury. Joleon Lescott, Adam Johnson, James Milner, Andy Carroll, Kieran Gibbs, Michael Carrick, Frank Lampard, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jermain Defoe are all also absent for the game in Stockholm.

The squad are expected to meet up on Sunday and train in Manchester before travelling to Sweden for Wednesday's game.

Roy Hodgson has revealed that he plans to add Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson to his England squad for next week's match with Sweden. He is waiting for FIFA clearance to arrive before naming the 20-year-old in his group for the trip to Stockholm, due to the player's appearances for Finland at Under-21 level. 
But Hodgson explained that the player himself has expressed his commitment to England, after training with the squad last month and will be added to the squad in due course.  He said: "The reason I didn't include Carl from the start is because we haven't, at this moment in time, got clearance from FIFA but we do believe that they are going to grant that clearance within a day or two. So by next Wednesday, he will be clear to play. He wants to play for England and has made that clear so we applied for permission to FIFA, as one is allowed to do, immediately after he left us and before we set off for Poland."

Saturday, 10 November 2012 - England have injury concerns over Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott. Rooney went off after 79 minutes of Manchester United's 3-2 win over Aston Villa today. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "He's got an ankle knock and has ice on it. We'll see how he is tomorrow." Walcott injured his buttock muscles in the first half of Arsenal's 3-3 draw with Fulham and was replaced with six minutes of the game remaining. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said Walcott may not be fit to travel to Stockholm. "Walcott has a glute muscle problem," he said. "At the moment, he is limping so I do not know whether he will be able to join the national team."

Monday, 12 November 2012 - Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has won his first England call-up after the withdrawal of five players from the squad. The 20-year-old is the first Championship outfield player to be called up since Jay Bothroyd in 2010. Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson and Tottenham's Tom Huddlestone are also in the squad. Roy Hodgson had hoped to include Tottenham's Jermain Defoe and Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in his squad. However, Defoe is injured, while Oxlade-Chamberlain is not match-fit. Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott, Jonjo Shelvey, Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon have all been ruled out.

According to today's Daily Mail, his England call-up followed two hours of "frantic negotiations" between the player's representatives and the Football Association. Zaha was reportedly torn after taking a call from Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba on Wednesday urging him to play for the country of his birth in the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

Steven Gerrard has had a precautionary scan on a knee injury.  But was cleared to travel to Sweden.
