Diary

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.

Sunday, 30 August 2009 - Fabio Capello names a 24-man squad for games against Slovenia and Croatia.  Fabio Capello has named his squad for the Wembley double-header with Slovenia and Croatia.  Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster returns from injury to join Robert Green and Paul Robinson in forming Capello's three goalkeeping options in the 24-man list.  Meanwhile Spurs duo Aaron Lennon and Peter Crouch, who both scored in Spurs' win over Birmingham City on Saturday, are in the squad.  Manchester United defender Wes Brown is also in Capello's selection for the friendly next Saturday, which will be followed by the important World Cup Qualifier a week on Wednesday.

Wednesday, 2 September 2009 - Bolton's Gary Cahill has been drafted into the England squad for Saturday's friendly against Slovenia at Wembley.  The 23-year-old centre-back is in as cover for Wes Brown and John Terry, who picked up knocks in training. With Rio Ferdinand (thigh) already out, Capello will be eager for Terry in particular to be fit for the World Cup qualifier with Croatia on 9 September.  In a statement, the Football Association stated that both players were likely to be fit for a match in which victory would secure England's place at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  However, Capello may chose to rest them against Slovenia given the importance of their meeting with Slaven Bilic's Croatia four days later.  Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson also suffered a minor injury in training but should be fit for both matches.
