Diary

Thursday, 20 March 2008 - The FA confirm that England will play friendlies against USA on Wednesday 28 May, and Czech Republic on Wednesday 20 August, with both games at Wembley. Bob Bradley's USA will visit Wembley in May for the third friendly of Fabio Capello's reign as England manager, while Czech Republic will provide the final warm-up ahead of the first World Cup Qualifier in September.

Sunday, 11 May 2008 - Fabio Capello has named a 31-man squad to face USA at Wembley, and travel to Trinidad and Tobago for England's final match of the season four days later.  Joe Hart receives his first call up to the England squad after a strong season with Manchester City, while there are six further players who along with Hart are yet to earn an England senior cap.  Among those players are West Ham United forward Dean Ashton, defenders Phil Jagielka, David Wheater and Stephen Warnock, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone and Gabriel Agbonlahor.  A quartet of players from newly-crowned Premier League Champions Manchester United are included, with Wes Brown, Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Wayne Rooney all involved during Sunday's title-clinching win at Wigan Athletic.  If Joe Cole is involved against USA at Wembley it would be a 50th cap for the Chelsea midfielder.

Friday, 23 May 2008 - Michael Owen is likely to miss the forthcoming friendlies because of a virus.  Owen did not report for England duty on Friday and is not expected to play against the USA at Wembley or in Port of Spain the following Sunday.  Jermaine Jenas is also out with an ankle problem.

Saturday, 24 May 2008 - Fabio Capello has brought in Peterborough United goalkeeper Joe Lewis into his squad after Chris Kirkland returned to Wigan Athletic due to a back injury.  The FA said Kirkland looks set to miss Wednesday's friendly against the United States after having muscle spasms in his back.  Lewis and Peterborough won promotion to League One this season. The 20-year-old became Peterborough's record signing in January when he signed for £400,000 from Norwich City. "This is fantastic news for Joe and Peterborough United. It will be a fantastic experience for him." Peterborough director of football Barry Fry said.  If Lewis makes his debut, he will join a small group of players including Johnny Byrne, Peter Taylor and Steve Bull who have played for England while plying their trade outside the top two divisions.
