  All information is complete to and including England's last match, the fourth of the 2022-23 season, against United States on 25 November 2022.


Friday, 1 April 2022 - The draw for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is has been completed. England are drawn in Group B alongside Iran and the United States. One from Wales, Scotland or Ukraine will also join them.

Thursday, 23 June 2022 - FIFA has approved 26-man squads for this year's World Cup in Qatar. The move is in line with national competitions and is an expansion on the 23-man squads that had been used before the coronavirus pandemic. FIFA also said that up to 15 substitutes can be named for each game, meaning no player misses out. Something Gareth Southgate had been calling for. FIFA also said that no more than 26 people can sit on the team bench—fifteen substitutes and eleven officials, one of which must be a doctor.

Thursday, 10 November 2022 - Leicester midfielder James Maddison has been included in England's 26-man squad for the Fifa World Cup in Qatar. Manager Gareth Southgate has also picked Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and Newcastle striker Callum Wilson, Manchester City full-back Kyle Walker and Arsenal defender Ben White. But AC Milan centre-back Fikayo Tomori, Brentford striker Ivan Toney and West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen miss out. Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips, despite only recently returning from two months out with a shoulder problem, is in, as is centre-back Harry Maguire, who has struggled to get a game for Manchester United this season.

Monday, 14 November 2022 - With no fresh injury concerns over the final week of league games across Europe, the players begin gathering at St. George's Park for a recovery session.

Tuesday, 15 November 2022 - Following a squad number ceremony, where HRH Prince William presented each England player with their squad number, the England squad leave St. George's Park for Qatar, expecting to arrive at 8.00pm local time, and at their base an hour later. They fly on board a Virgin Atlantic G-VPRD aeroplane, named Rain Bow. The team are based on the shore of the Arabian Gulf at the five-star Souq Al Wakra Hotel.

Wednesday, 16 November 2022 - All 26 players are training for the first time at their training base, Al Wakrah Sports Complex.

Thursday, 17 November 2022 - 25 of the 26 players are training in the hot Al Wakrah sun today. There is no specialist cooling equipment, instead, it is an effort to acclimatise the players to the Qatari weather. James Maddison is the missing player due to 'load management' and has 'a slight knee problem.'

Friday, 18 November 2022 - James Maddison is again the only member of the squad not in full training today, He was present at the session but watched from the sidelines trying to stay hydrated.

Sunday, 20 November 2022 - The squad reschedule training to start at 4.00pm (1.00pm GMT) to match the kick-off time tomorrow. Again, Maddison is the only member of the squad to miss out on the training session.
Gareth Southgate has confirmed that James Maddison and Kyle Walker will miss tomorrow's match. Walker is working his way back to fitness following groin surgery, whereas Maddison is yet to train.

Monday, 21 November 2022 - England other European nations will not wear the OneLove armband at the World Cup in Qatar because of the threat of players being booked. The captains of nine countries, including Harry Kane, had planned to wear the armband to promote diversity and inclusion. A joint statement from seven Football Associations said they could not put their players "in a position where they could face sporting sanctions. We are very frustrated by the Fifa decision which we believe is unprecedented," the statement read. The governing bodies said they had written to Fifa in September informing them about the OneLove armband but not received a response. "Fifa has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play. We were prepared to pay fines that would normally apply to breaches of kit regulations and had a strong commitment to wearing the armband. However, we cannot put our players in the situation where they might be booked or even forced to leave the field of play." In response, Fifa has brought forward its own "No Discrimination" campaign, which had been due to start from the quarter-finals. Captains will now be permitted to wear a No Discrimination armband for the duration of the tournament.

6.15pm England 6 Iran 2 -
England's Fifa World Cup campaign opened in thoroughly convincing fashion as they outclassed Iran in an incident-packed match. Gareth Southgate's side strolled to victory, with Iran's hopeless plight made worse by the early loss of goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand to concussion after a clash of heads with team-mate Majid Hosseini. Jude Bellingham got England off the mark in this World Cup with a soaring header from Luke Shaw's cross 10 minutes before the break and the game was wrapped up before half-time thanks to Bukayo Saka's fine strike and Raheem Sterling's classy volley with the outside of his foot from Harry Kane's cross. Saka got his second before Iran's supporters were given a moment of real delight when Mehdi Taremi scored a fine goal after 65 minutes - but England substitute Marcus Rashford then netted another smooth, composed strike with his first involvement. To put the gloss on an incredibly dominant display, Jack Grealish slotted home from close range after a good run and pull back by Callum Wilson. Iran did pull another back in injury time when Taremi slotted in a penalty after a John Stones foul.

Tuesday, 22 November 2022 - There are thirteen players involved in today's training session, with Callum Wilson joining the eleven who started yesterday's game working inside. James Maddison continues to work on rehabilitation indoors.
Captain Harry Kane is to have a scan on his right ankle tomorrow. He sustained the injury early in the second half of the match against Iran and was eventually replaced with Callum Wilson.

Wednesday, 23 November 2022 - Harry Kane was able to train today, boosting hopes he will be fit for Friday's match. He was due to have a scan today. James Maddison, again missed training, however Harry Maguire was involved. Callum Wilson did not train in a light session with ther rest of the substitutes, but is not considered a doubt.

Thursday, 24 November 2022 - Captain Harry Kane will be fit to face the United States, says his manager Gareth Southgate. The scan revealed no injury and he worked separately from the group as a precaution. Harry Maguire is also feeling much better, after it was revealed that his illness affected his vision. Kyle Walker has stepped us his training and is available for tomorrow. 25 players are training today, with James Maddison again, the player missing out.

Friday, 25 November 2022 - England 0 United States 0 -
England laboured to a drab draw against the United States to miss the chance to seal qualification for the World Cup knockout stage. Gareth Southgate's side were second best for long periods as they failed to match the energy and intensity of the USA, who have their own hopes of making the last 16. England, with Harry Maguire solid in defence, were unimpressive and rode their luck when Weston McKennie missed an easy chance and Christian Pulisic struck the bar in the first half. Mason Mount brought a fine save from USA goalkeeper Matt Turner just before the break but this was an undistinguished display that carried none of the attacking verve that saw the Three Lions thrash Iran in their opening game, and leaves them heading into their match against Wales with their fate undecided. England remain firm favourites to qualify for the knockout stage, knowing they only need to avoid a four-goal defeat against Wales to progress.

Saturday, 26 November 2022 - Fourteen players, including James Maddison, are out for today's training session in Al Wakrah. The eleven that started yesterday's match are taking part in a recovery session. Jordan Henderson is working indoors on an individual recovery programme.

Monday, 28 November 2022 - The squad members are back training at their Al Wakrah Sports Complex base. Only 25 of the 26 players are involved in the 30-degree heat, with Ben White missing out because of illness.
