Diary

Friday, 27 January 2006 - The European Championships Qualification draw is made today in Montreux. It pits England up against Croatia, Russia, Israel, Macedonia, Andorra and Estonia.

Friday, 3 March 2006 - Group E fixtures were negotiated today at a meeting between the Football Association and fellow participants in Nyon, Switzerland.

Friday, 25 August 2006 - Steve McClaren has picked a 24-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2008 double header against Andorra and Macedonia.   Everton striker Andy Johnson has earned an international recall after a flying start to his Everton career with Michael Carrick also returning after recovering from an ankle injury.  Gary Neville is rested and Jamie Carragher is the only other exclusion from the squad following an ankle injury last week.

Saturday, 26 August 2006 - Rio Ferdinand could be forced to pull out of the England squad for the opening Euro 2008 qualifiers because of a suspected broken toe.  Ferdinand suffered the injury during Manchester United's 2-1 win at Watford.  United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said Ferdinand faced a scan on Sunday and rated him doubtful for England.  If Ferdinand misses out, Tottenham's Michael Dawson could be given the chance to partner captain John Terry.

Saturday, 2 September 2006 - England beat Andorra 5-0.

Monday, 4 September 2006 - Steve McClaren expects Rio Ferdinand to return from a toe injury and be available to face Macedonia on Wednesday.  "He will be travelling with us and we expect him to be fine to train again in Macedonia on Tuesday." 

But keeper Chris Kirkland and defender Luke Young are out through injury.  Kirkland has a back injury while a persistent ankle problem has forced the withdrawal of Young.
