All information is complete to and including England's last match, the second of the 2012-13 season, against Moldova on 7 September 2012.


Saturday, 30 July 2011 - England will face Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, and San Marino in Group H when they bid to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil. The draw was made this afternoon in Rio. "It is not an easy draw," said Fabio Capello. "You have to be really, really focused and playery game like a final - but that will be another manager's job."

Wednesday, 23 November 2011 - England's FIFA 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixtures have today been finalised, following a meeting between all of the Group H member associations in Warsaw. The Three Lions will begin their campaign in Moldova in September 2012.

Friday, 24 August 2012 - John Terry will be in England's squad for September's World Cup qualifying matches against Moldova and Ukraine. The Football Association has yet to announce a date for Terry's independent hearing over charges he used a racist slur against QPR's Anton Ferdinand. The Chelsea captain, 31, denies the allegation and was cleared of racially abusing Ferdinand by a magistrates' court in July. "I can select him, and I will be selecting him," said boss Roy Hodgson.

Sunday, 26 August 2012 - Wayne Rooney faces four weeks on the sidelines after suffering a gash on his right leg during Manchester United's 3-2 win over Fulham. He was injured when blocking a free-kick and Fulham's Hugo Rodallega landed on the England international's thigh. Rooney, who spent the night in hospital before being released on today, will miss two World Cup qualifiers.

Thursday, 30 August 2012 - Roy Hodgson has named a 24-man squad ahead of the opening World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine next month.

John Terry has been included, despite missing Chelsea's victory over Newcastle United at the weekend with a neck injury.

On the evening, Andy Carroll had signed a season-long loan deal with West Ham United FC.

Saturday, 1 September 2012 - Andy Carroll limped out of his debut as his new club, West Ham United beat Fulfam 3-0.  He has withdrawn from the England squad due to a hamstring injury.  There will be no replacement, with Theo Walcott expected to provide adequate cover.

Monday, 3 September 2012 - Ashley Cole will miss England's match against Moldova on Friday because of an ankle injury. The Chelsea left-back, 31, returned to his club shortly after joining up with the squad. The injury is described as "minor", and he will be assessed on Sunday over his availability for the qualifier against Ukraine.

Thursday, 6 September 2012 - Adam Johnson has been ruled out of the match with Moldova following a thigh injury. He has returned to his club for treatment.

Friday, 7 September 2012 - England record an impressive 5-0 victory over Moldova.  The only concern is John Terry. His ankle was knocked and twisted he eventually left the field of play after 88 minutes and as a result, is an injury concern ahead of the Ukraine match on Tuesday. Captain Steven Gerrard was replaced at half-time as a precaution.

Saturday, 8 September 2012 - Ashley Cole has now been ruled out of the match against Ukraine on Tuesday night with his ankle injury. An FA statement said: "Ashley Cole was assessed by the medical staff on Saturday and will not be available for the qualifier with Ukraine on Tuesday."

John Terry also remains a doubt after twisting his ankle during the win in Chisinau. Hodgson offered Terry the opportunity to come off for the final 20 minutes. But the Chelsea defender decided to continue as England saw out the victory. "I'd like to have taken him off, and we did suggest we'd play with 10. He's a warrior though, so he poo-pooed the suggestion. He took a kick on the ankle in the first half and then twisted it slightly when he landed in front of the bench in the second half. They're assessing him at the moment. It's obviously not a very serious injury, butery knock is important with only three days between games."

Sunday, 9 September 2012 - John Terry will miss the match against Ukraine because of an ankle injury. The 31-year-old was ruled out of the tie at Wembley after failing to recover from the injury he suffered on Friday. He was optimistic of playing after receiving treatment, but the Football Association announced today that Terry would not be fit in time to play. "Following further treatment from the England medical staff on Sunday, John Terry will not be available for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday. Terry suffered an ankle injury in the game with Moldova, and has returned to his club.

Roy Hodgson has defenders Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill available as cover for the absent Terry, while Leighton Baines will continue at left-back. Cahill is likely to replace Terry and partner Joleon Lescott at centre-back in the second qualifying match of the campaign.

Monday, 10 September 2012 - Liverpool's 17-year-old winger Raheem Sterling has been called into the England squad. Midfielders Jake Livermore, 22, of Tottenham, and Southampton's Adam Lallana, 24, have also been brought in by Roy Hodgson. Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has been ruled out through illness. He missed Monday's training session along with Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge, who remains with the squad.  Hodgson said Walcott, who has picked up a bug and been violently ill, has returned to his club but he hopes Sturridge will recover in time from stomach cramps. "I can only hope nothing is going round the squad. That was why we were quite keen to get Theo home as soon as possible and also keep Daniel away from the squad. I have to hope it's just an isolated case with the two players," said the manager. He also said the trio who had been drafted into the squad were unlikely to feature in Tuesday's match. "It was a good opportunity to invite some young players to come in and be part of the atmosphere," said Hodgson.
