All information is
complete to and including England's last match, the fourth of the 2010-11 season,
against Montenegro on 12 October 2010.
15 August 2010
- The FA have confirmed that England will face France at Wembley in their final
match of 2010. Laurent Blanc's side will take on the Three Lions in a
reverse of Fabio Capello's second game in charge two years ago.
- There are many unfamiliar names in Capello's preliminary squad, including
Cardiff City's Jay Bothroyd, Blackburn Rovers' Phil Jones', Sunderland's Jordan
Henderson. Matt Jarvis of Wolverhampton Wanderers, who was also in the
provisional squad that faced Bulgaria and Montenegro this season.
- As England prepare for their final game of 2010, Capello has called upon four
players for the very first time. Chris Smalling graduates from the Under-21s
along with Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson, while Jay Bothroyd and Andy
Carroll are among the attacking options.
- Chelsea pair John Terry and Ashley Cole and Aston Villa's Gabriel Agbonlahor
have all pulled out of England's friendly. Bolton's Gary Cahill, Aston
Villa's Stephen Warnock and West Ham's Carlton Cole have been called in.
Terry missed his side's shock 3-0 home defeat by Sunderland on Sunday with lower
back and hamstring problems. Ashley Cole picked up a knock in the match
while Agbonlahor was injured in Villa's game against Manchester United.
Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll
reported to England's team hotel on Sunday evening but his hopes of playing are
in the balance after he picked up a groin injury in his club's 0-0 draw with
Fulham on Saturday. Carroll is due to train with the rest of the squad at
Arsenal's London Colney complex on Monday morning.
- Andy Carroll was forced to miss training with
England today as he faces up to the prospect of being forced to pull out of the
squad. Carroll is a major doubt for the game after picking up a groin
problem in Newcastle's 0-0 draw with Fulham on Saturday.
- Andy Carroll will make his England debut against France. Fabio Capello
revealed that Jordan Henderson, 20, will also make his debut while Arsenal
left-back Kieron Gibbs starts. Midfielder Jack Wilshere has been
ruled out through injury, while keeper Joe Hart is being assessed by a doctor.
That comes after the Manchester City goalkeeper suffered an injury during a
training session at Wembley on Tuesday, while Arsenal's Wilshere - who had been
tipped for a first international start - did not take part. "Wilshere is
going home," said Capello. "Phil Jagielka has flu, but we think he will be OK.
With Hart, the doctor is waiting to decide what happened. We think it will not
be a big problem for him."
- Newcastle have asked the Football Association to withdraw Andy Carroll from
England's friendly. Striker Carroll, 21, is set to make his international
debut - but his club are worried about the groin injury he picked up against
Fulham on Saturday. Carroll had a scan before training with England
on Tuesday, after which manager Fabio Capello declared he was fit.
Goalkeeper Joe Hart is out with a back injury, so Ben Foster should start.
Hart's place in the squad has been replaced by Watford's Scott Loach.
