All information is complete to and including England's last match, the tenth of the 2008-09 season, against Kazakhstan on 6 June 2009.


Sunday, 25 November 2007 - England will meet Croatia again after the European Qualification Draw for the 2010 World Cup was made today in Durban, South Africa. The Three Lions were also drawn with Ukraine, Belarus, Andorra and Kazakhstan.

Wednesday, 14 January 2008 - In Zagreb, Croatia, the fixture list is finalised for the UEFA Qualification Group Six.

Monday, 18 May 2009 - Portsmouth goalkeeper David James will undergo a shoulder operation on Wednesday  that will rule him out of England's World Cup qualifiers in June.  James missed Pompey's 3-1 win over Sunderland and will now be unavailable for England's games against Kazakhstan and Andorra. "It's an injury I've been carrying for 18 months.  I wanted to wait until Portsmouth were safe, but unfortunately the recuperation period is long.  I'm going to miss a couple of England games, which is unavoidable.  Having started every game for Mr Capello, I'd have liked to have continued that, but I'm making the best of a bad situation. It's important I get back and start pre-season well and get myself in 100% shape for next season and be part of a successful England team."

Thursday, 21 May 2009 - Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing will also miss England's two World Cup qualifiers because he needs surgery on his right foot. The 24-year-old was injured in a tackle by Stiliyan Petrov during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa. "He is out for two or three months at least," said Boro's assistant manager Malcolm Crosby. Downing had to be substituted after only 23 minutes following the challenge with Petrov.

Friday, 22 May 2009 - Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips has become the latest player to be ruled out of England's two World Cup qualifiers through injury.  Wright-Phillips has missed the last six weeks with a knee problem and suffered a reaction when he returned to training this week.

Sunday, 24 May 2009 - Fabio Capello has named a 24-man squad.  Manchester United defender Gary Neville is recalled to the England squad - his first call under Fabio Capello - while Jermain Defoe returns after missing the first three England games of 2009 through injury.  Shaun Wright-Phillips, who was thought to need knee surgery, proved his fitness for Manchester City today and is also named in the squad.

Sunday, 31 May 2009 - Manchester United's Michael Carrick will miss England's upcoming World Cup qualifiers with a foot injury.  His place in the squad has gone to Aston Villa winger James Milner, with the 23-year-old being promoted from England's Under-21 squad.  Midfielder Carrick has not started a competitive game for England since the loss to Croatia in 2006.  The former Spurs star, who played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's Champions League defeat against Barcelona, was unlikely to be first choice for his country.  But his absence leaves England coach Fabio Capello with only three recognised central midfielders - Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry - for the two games.

Monday, 1 June 2009 - Defenders Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole both sat out training as a precaution.  Chelsea's Cole took a kick in the FA Cup final win over Everton on Saturday, while Manchester United's Ferdinand is resting a long-standing calf injury.  Both are expected to train on Tuesday or later in the week.

Tuesday, 2 June 2009 - Rio Ferdinand has withdrawn from the England squad because of injury and Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill has been called up.  Ferdinand has failed to shake off a calf injury in time for Saturday's World Cup qualifier but could return for the game against Andorra next week.  Fabio Capello turned to Cahill following an injury to Phil Jagielka.  Cahill now joins Matthew Upson and Joleon Lescott as the players hoping to partner captain John Terry at centre-back.  The 23-year-old said he was delighted with the call-up to the full squad.  "I've had a good season and I've worked really hard.  I've been in the provisional squad twice before and then this third time I was included once again, so I'm obviously delighted to get the call."

Left-back Ashley Cole, who picked up a knock on Saturday, has trained ahead of the trip to Almaty and should play.

Gareth Barry has signed for Manchester City FC from Aston Villa FC for £12 million.

Thursday, 4 June 2009 - Reports coming from the training camp suggest a bust-up between Gareth Barry and Gary Cahill.  Cahill allegedly flooring Barry with a scything tackle.

Saturday, 6 June 2009 - England defeat Kazakhstan comfortably 4-0.  Gareth Barry is booked, his second caution of the qualification campaign.  He is suspended for the Andorra match on Wednesday night.

Sunday, 7 June 2009 - Rio Ferdinand has been ruled out Wednesday's World Cup qualifier with Andorra through injury.  The Manchester United centre-back missed Saturday's 4-0 win in Kazakhstan due to discomfort with a calf injury.  It was expected Ferdinand would join up with his England colleagues on Sunday but it has now been confirmed the 30-year-old will miss the game at Wembley.

Tuesday, 9 June 2009 - Fabio Capello has hinted he is considering resting players who are one booking away from suspension for the match against Andorra.  David Beckham, Glen Johnson and Emile Heskey are all one yellow card away from missing the World Cup qualifier against Croatia on 9 September.  "I have thought about this problem. I have to decide if some players on yellow cards will play."  Capello suggested that even though Beckham is close to a suspension he, along with Shaun Wright-Phillips, are in contention for a midfield role as a replacement for the suspended Barry.  Heskey could make way for Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch or Carlton Cole.  Gary Neville is expected to play if Johnson is rested. Capello is expected to continue with Matthew Upson alongside skipper John Terry following the victory on Saturday.  Capello must decide whether to play Arsenal's Theo Walcott on the right of midfield after his below-par performance against Kazakhstan.  Beckham, Wright-Phillips and Gerrard could all replace Walcott, who is also scheduled to join up with Stuart Pearce's England Under-21 squad ahead of their European Championship campaign later this week. But Capello added: "Walcott will be very important because we have to play to attack and the wide position is very important. I've spoken to him and he trained very well. He needs to play to recover his best condition."

West Bromwich Albion's keeper Scott Carson sat out training on Tuesday because of a side strain but he is expected to be fit.
