Diary

Monday, 29 February 2016 - Reports suggest that England are lining up a friendly with Turkey to be played at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium on 22 May. Although Football Association chiefs are concerned that the fixture will clash with the finals of both the F.A. Vase and F.A. Trophy, both due to take place at Wembley the same day. England will then play Australia at Sunderland, and Portugal at Wembley, as warm-up matches to the main event. Qualified teams are only supposed to play one other team who will also play at the competition in the build-up, but England have reportedly received special dispensation to play both Portugal and Turkey.

Friday, 6 May 2016 - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out of the European Championships after suffering his second knee injury of the season. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says the 22-year-old, capped 24 times, will be out for a further six to eight weeks. Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered his initial knee injury in the Champions League defeat by Barcelona on 23 February. "There is no chance of the Euros for him," said Wenger. "He will be back at the beginning of July." 
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson will be fit for the finals, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. The Liverpool captain, 25, suffered knee ligament damage against Borussia Dortmund on 7 April, and was expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks. However, Klopp says Henderson may feature in the Reds' Europa League final against Sevilla on 18 May. "Hendo is in a really good way so it's good for England," Klopp said. "There's no doubt about him being fit for the European Championships." 

Wednesday, 11 May 2016 - Danny Welbeck has been ruled out for nine months following knee surgery. Welbeck, 25, injured his right knee in the Gunners' 2-2 draw against Manchester City on Sunday. His club said tests had revealed "significant cartilage damage" but it is not the same injury which saw him miss seven months of this season. 

Thursday, 12 May 2016 - Roy Hodgson delays the decision to announce his European Championship Squad until after the final Premier League weekend has been played, allowing himself four extra days to assess players' injuries and fitness.

Monday, 16 May 2016 - Roy Hodgson's provisonal squad is named. Marcus Rashford is included and Jack Wilshere, along with Andros Townsend and Fabian Delph are recalled. Theo Walcott and Phil Jagielka miss out, and there is no room for Jermain Defoe. Hodgson has until 31 May to cull his squad by three.

Wednesday, 18 May 2016 - Many of the England squad report to St. George's Park for training ahead of next week's friendly match. It excludes players from Liverpool and Manchester United, who are still particpating in domestic competitions. However, those involved come through with incident. Gary Cahill misses training.

Friday, 20 May 2016 - Jordan Henderson joins the rest of the squad in training after returning from Basel, where he starred in a non-particpating role as Liverpool lost the UEFA Europa League Final on Wednesday night. Gary Cahill also has his first training session. Today's training session is joined by England Rugby coach, Eddie Jones, as well as an unwanted autograph hunter, who had invaded the training pitch during a session. Gary Cahill receives a painkilling injection in his hip.

Sunday, 22 May 2016 - England come through their friendly test against Turkey with a victory, despite Harry Kane missing a penalty. It was revealed that one of the goalscorers, Jamie Vardy, is unavailable for selection against Australia, as he is due to get married on Wednesday.

Monday, 23 May 2016 - The rest of the squad from Liverpool join up with the England team at Manchester City Academy.

Wednesday, 25 May 2016 - The England players are again training in Manchester. Daniel Sturridge is missing from the session after receiving an unspecified knock, further speculating a debut for Marcus Rashford. Gary Cahill is also a sidelined participant. The only other missing player is Jamie Vardy, who is getting married today. Danny Drinkwater did attend the ceremony, but he returned for training.

Thursday, 26 May 2016 - Roy Hodgson confirms that Daniel Sturridge has been suffering from a calf strain and that Fabian Delph will be missing from the match against Australia because of a groin strain, and he is now placed on standby for the European Championship Squad. Hodgson also confirms that Forster will start in goal, and Rooney will start from the bench.

Friday, 27 May 2016 - History is made as Marcus Rashford becomes the youngest player to score on his debut for England, beating a record held by Tommy Lawton since 1938. England's newest scorer is joined by England's top scorer, Wayne Rooney, on the scoresheet. Eric Dier's unfortunate own goal was a consolation for the Australian team.

Monday, 30 May 2016 - The England squad return to training at Watford FC's training ground. Daniel Sturridge and Gary Cahill both return to full training, whereas Ryan Bertrand sat out the early seassion, so he could receive treatment on a knock.

Tuesday, 31 May 2016 - Roy Hodgson names his 23 man squad that he is taking to France for the European Championship Finals. Both Marcus Rashford and Daniel Sturridge are included, whereas Danny Drinkwater and Andros Townsend are the two players that lose out after Fabian Delph was withdrawn last week.

Wednesday, 1 June 2016 - Ryan Bertrand misses training again because of an injury that will keep him for playing any part in tomorrow night's friendly against Portugal. He is still expected to be fit for the European Championship Finals.
