Diary

Sunday, 26 July 2015 - England road to qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia has been mapped out following Saturday's draw in St Petersburg. The fixtures were decided today using UEFA's approved computerised system, which takes into account a number of factors including travel and domestic competition commitments. The Three Lions kick off their Group F campaign on 4 September 2016 with an away trip to Slovakia.

Monday, 27 June 2016 - Roy Hodgson steps down from the position as England manager after a disappointing European Championship Finals tournament. The favourite to take over, Gareth Southgate, soon rules himself out of the job.

Wednesday, 13 July 2016 - Sunderland AFC give the Football Association permission for them to speak to their manager, Sam Allardyce. FA chief executive Martin Glenn is fronting the three-man panel, which also includes FA technical director Dan Ashworth and board member David Gill, to decide the next England manager.
Allardyce had been on tour with Sunderland in Austria until he returned home at the start of the week, reportedly on transfer business. Sunderland said they agreed to let Allardyce speak with the FA after he requested permission but are upset discussions did not remain confidential. "After what was an extremely challenging season, we are keen to see a period of stability, both on and off the field, and we want him to remain as manager of our football club." Allardyce is not the only Premier League manager linked with England. Arsenal's Arsene Wenger, Bournemouth's Eddie Howe and Hull City's Steve Bruce have all been touted as possible candidates, as has former manager Glenn Hoddle and former German nemesis, Jurgen Klinsmann.

Monday, 18 July 2016 - Hull City manager Steve Bruce is interviewed by the Football Association today about the England manager's job. Hull said Bruce, 55, has "held informal discussions" but "no official approach has been received from the FA".

Wednesday, 20 July 2016 - The Football Association confirm that Sam Allardyce will be confirmed as the new England manager in the next 24 hours.

Friday, 22 July 2016 - Allardyce returnes to work with his club, Sunderland AFC, overseeing training sessions, as the Football Association and the Wearside club thrash at an adequate compensation deal. The FA only offering one million pounds of the three million demanded by Sunderland.
In the afternoon, the FA finally announce Allardyce as the new manager, at the same time, Steve Bruce resigns as manager of Hull City FC. Allardyce is handed a two year contract, for what he describes 'as the best job in English football''.

Monday, 25 July 2016 - On the same day Sam Allardyce is unveiled as the new manager and holds his first press conference, it is announced that England will begin the season, and Allardyce's first match will be against Croatia on 1 September at Wembley.

Tuesday, 26 July 2016 - Allardyce cancels the friendly match against Croatia, meaning his first match will be against Slovakia in a World Cup qualification match.

Thursday, 25 August 2016 - Marcus Rashford is named in the under-21 squad by Gareth Southgate for the first time. Ruling him out of contention for the main squad, which is to be named on Sunday.

Sunday, 28 August 2016 - Sam Allardyce names his first squad, naming one new uncapped player, Michail Antonio. There are also recalls for Luke Shaw, Danny Drinkwater, Phil Jagielka and Theo Walcott. However, there is no call up for Ross Barkley or Jack Wilshere.

Monday, 29 August 2016 - Sam Allardyce takes charge of his first training session at St. George's Park. 22 of the 23 man squad report for training. The only missing player is Joe Hart, who has flown to Italy to have a medical at Torino, ahead of a probable loan move. Allardyce also confirms that Wayne Rooney will continue as captain.

Tuesday, 30 August 2016 - Second day of training is again attended by 22 players. Joe Hart is in Turin having his medical and signing on a season-long loan with Torino FC, in a bid to attain first class football. The challenge of Serie A football being the pull over a proposed move to Sunderland. Wayne Rooney also confirms that he will probably retire from international football at the end on the World Cup 2018 campaign.

Thursday, 1 September 2016 - Fraser Foster withdraws from the squad and returns to his club after he injured his arm in training. Allardyce replaced him with his club mate, Alex McCArthy, who was called up by Roy Hodgson in 2013.

Friday, 2 September 2016 - Sam Allardyce takes the unusual step of naming his team, almost 48 hours before kick-off. There are three changes to team that lost to Iceland. John Stones, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana are included in Allardyce's first starting line-up, with Chris Smalling, Daniel Sturridge and Dele Alli dropped.

Saturday, 3 September 2016 - Luke Shaw misses the final session of training at St. George's Park. Instead, under-20 defender Tafari Moore joins the senior squad in training. The full squad then fly out to Trnava this afternoon without Shaw, who has now withdrawn from the squad as a 'precautionary measure'.
