All information is complete to and including England's last match, the tenth of the 2012-13 season, against Republic of Ireland on 29 May 2013.


Friday, 23 November 2012 - England will play Brazil in a friendly at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium next summer, local officials said. The fixture will take place on 2 June at the arena which will go on to host both the 2014 World Cup final and the opening and closing ceremonies of the Rio Olympic Games two years later. The friendly will be Brazil's first game at the 78,000-capacity Maracana after substantial modernisation work.

Thursday, 16 May 2013 - Roy Hodgson has named his England squad for the upcoming double-header with Republic of Ireland and Brazil and has called up Reading's Alex McCarthy for the first time.  The Royals stopper, who has previous international experience at Under-21s level, comes in after impressive displays at the Madejski Stadium. He joins other 'keepers Joe Hart and Ben Foster on the 22-man list.  Liverpool's in-form striker Daniel Sturridge is included in the squad, too, alongside the Reds' on-loan forward Andy Carroll. 
Frank Lampard, Gary Cahill and Ashley Cole, fresh from Europa League success with Chelsea, are also in Hodgson's line-up for the games at Wembley on 29 May and in Rio on 2 June.

Monday, 20 May 2013 - Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell has been called into the England squad. The 22-year-old has endured an injury-plagued debut campaign with City, but returned for the last month of the season and scored both goals in the Blues 3-2 defeat by Norwich on Sunday.

Tuesday, 21 May 2013 - Andy Carroll has withdrawn from the England squad.  No-one will be drafted in to replace the 24-year-old who has been ruled out because of a heel injury.  England's squad are expected to meet at St George's Park on Sunday.

Sunday, 26 May 2013 - Tom Cleverley has withdrawn from the England squad after not recovering from the calf-injury sustained in Manchester United's final game of the season.

Monday, 27 May 2013 - Kyle Walker has withdrawn from the squad.  Walker reported to St. George's Park with an injury yesterday which was assessed by the Club England medical staff.  The Tottenham Hotspur defender will be unavailable for the two upcoming matches and has returned to his club. There will be no replacement at this time.

Tuesday, 28 May 2013 - Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole will captain England for the friendly with the Republic of Ireland as a tribute for reaching 100 appearances. Roy Hodgson had told the news conference Cole would lead the team out, but Frank Lampard would be captain in Steven Gerrard's absence. But the England camp later insisted Cole was skipper. "He has been a fantastic servant, not just for Arsenal and Chelsea but for England as well."

Wednesday, 29 May 2013 - England draw 1-1 with Republic of Ireland. Frank Lampard equalising a Shane Long opener. The one concern is Daniel Sturridge, who pulled up while chasing Glenn Whelan back into a defensive position, he instantly signalled that he was in trouble, and was taken away on a stretcher after being examined on the touchline. He went for a scan, which showed ligament damage. He was withdrawn from the squad to go to Brazil.

Thursday, 30 May 2013 - England's friendly with Brazil on Sunday has been suspended over safety concerns at the recently renovated Maracana stadium. A court order on Thursday ruled that the game cannot go ahead. But senior officials at the Football Association have said they have received assurances from their Brazilian counterparts that the fixture will be played as scheduled. The Rio de Janeiro government has appealed against the court's decision. "All safety requirements for the friendly between Brazil and England have been complied with and, because of a bureaucratic failure, the appraisal from the public ministry that proves the compliance with the rules on safety at the Maracana have not been sent to Suderj," the Rio government said in a statement.

Friday, 31 May 2013 - A duty judge later revoked the suspension despite Rio's state prosecutors saying that there are dangerous materials at the venue, including rocks, pieces of metal and pavement, and that these could pose a threat to the public. The England squad have already arrived in Rio.

Danny Welbeck's hopes of facing Brazil appear to be over after he limped out of training tonight. The Manchester United striker could only take part in the warm up. Welbeck had hoped to recover from injury to face Scolari's side, but he faces further treatment on a troublesome thigh injury. Welbeck missed Wednesday's game against the Republic of Ireland and Hodgson hoped to use him against Brazil. Instead Jermain Defoe, who came on as a substitute against the Irish, is now in contention. Despite fears over a nagging injury he took part in a full session and could even start against Brazil.

Saturday, 1 June 2013 - Danny Welbeck has been ruled out of England's friendly against Brazil at the Maracana with a knee injury.
