Notes

Because they failed to qualify for the World Cup 1994 final tournament and qualified automatically as host nation for the European Championship 1996 final tournament, England went without competitive play of any kind during 1994, the first time that had happened since 1883, the year before the British [Home International] Championship tournament began.  In 1995, for the second successive year, England had no major tournament matches.  In this tournament, which served as a trial run a year ahead of the European Championship 1996 finals, they sought a slightly more intense level of competition than provided by the long string of friendlies they had played since 1993.

 Notes

Tuesday, 23 May 1995 - Terry Venables named a 23-man squad missing several regulars for a tournament which, while of minor importance in and of itself, he regarded as critical to his preparations for the European Championship 1996 final tournament.  Missing through injury were David Seaman, Rob Jones, Lee Dixon, Neil Ruddock, Steve Howey, Tony Adams, Tim Sherwood, Dennis Wise and Barry Venison.

Thursday, 25 May 1995 - Paul Ince withdrew from the squad after talks with Venables, who named Jamie Redknapp to replace him.  Cleared the day before of criminal charges he assaulted a fan, Ince said:  "At the moment I feel drained. The court case was particularly hard to handle emotionally. I feel it's better for me to go on holiday with my family than play football. I wouldn't want to let England down in any way."

Friday, 2 June 1995 -  Andy Cole withdrew from the squad after seeing a specialist for his persistent shin splints problem.

Monday, 5 June 1995 -  Warren Barton joins Newcastle United FC
