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, 4 October 2009 - Theo Walcott has failed to make England's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus.  Walcott, who has just recovered from a back injury, scored for Arsenal in the 6-2 win against Blackburn, but coach Fabio Capello opted not to recall him.  Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor returns in place of Jermain Defoe who misses out through a hand injury.  With injury also ruling out goalkeeper Ben Foster, Portsmouth's David James is back for the first time since April.  There is no room in the squad for Sunderland's in-form striker Darren Bent, who is currently the top English scorer in the Premier League.  

Tuesday, 6 October 2009 - Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott and Blackburn Rovers keeper Paul Robinson have pulled out of the England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. The pair have been replaced by Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill and Manchester City keeper Joe Hart, who is on loan at Birmingham City.
