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.

Monday, 26 September 2016 - The Daily Telegraph run a story that shows the England manager, Sam Allardyce, was filmed by undercover reporters from the same newspaper, who posed as businessmen for a meeting in which he said it was "not a problem" to bypass rules on third-party player ownership, and claimed he knew of agents who were "doing it all the time". Third-party ownership - when investment companies take a stake in the economic rights of players - has been described as a form of "slavery" by Michel Platini, the former president of European football's governing body Uefa. The practice is banned by the FA and world governing body Fifa. The Telegraph investigation also claimed that a £400,000 deal was struck for Allardyce to represent the company to Far East investors and to be a keynote speaker at events - though he stressed he would have to "run that by" his employers. Allardyce also referred to his predecessor Roy Hodgson as "Woy", making fun of his manner of speaking, criticised Gary Neville, one of Hodgson's assistants, and made comments about FA president Prince William, while describing Prince Harry as a "naughty boy". He told Sky Sports he had only attended the meeting with the undercover reporters as a favour to friend and agent Scott McGarvey, who he says was hoping to land a job out of it.

Tuesday, 27 September 2016 - The Football Association terminate the contract of Sam Allardyce by 'mutual consent', calling Allardyce's conduct inappropriate. Allardyce said it had been "a great honour" to be appointed England manager and that he was "deeply disappointed at this outcome". "Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need the FA's full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment," he said. "As part of the meeting, I was asked to clarify what I said and the context in which the conversations took place. I have co-operated fully in this regard. "I also regret my comments with regard to other individuals."
Gareth Southgate has been installed as caretaker manager of the national side for the next four matches, allowing time for the Football Association to install a new manager up until the new year.

Wednesday, 28 September 2016 - Further details of the Telegraph's wide-ranging investigation are published in today's edition of the paper - including a claim that eight past and present Premier League managers have been accused of receiving illicit payments for transfers. Five of the un-named eight have denied the allegations while three are yet to comment, the paper says. 

Saturday, 1 October 2016 - Liverpool attacker Adam Lallana will miss England's next two World Cup qualifiers after injuring his groin during the Reds' 2-1 win at Swansea. "He has no chance for the national team," said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. "But hopefully 15 or 16 days should be enough to bring him back on the pitch."

Sunday, 2 October 2016 - Gareth Southgate names his 23 man squad, recalling Marcus Rashford from the under-21's, and Ryan Bertrand, who all missed out on Sam Allardyce's only squad last month. Stoke City's experienced right-back Glen Johnson is also recalled for the first time since the 2014 World Cup Finals. Both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jesse Lingard return after a year away from the England set-up. Nathaniel Clyne, who also picked up an injury yesterday, Danny Drinkwater, Harry Kane and the injury-prone Luke Shaw are excluded from the last squad.

Monday, 3 October 2016 - Raheem Sterling withdraws from the England squad to be replaced by Crystal Palace's Andros Townsend.

Tuesday, 4 October 2016 - The return of Glen Johnson to the England set-up ends prematurely as he withdraws from the squad through injury. Southgate calls up Burnley's Michael Keane to earn his first ever call-up to the senior squad.
The 23-man squad, including Keane, arrive at St. George's Park for first day of training, overseen for the first time by Gareth Southgate. Theo Walcott, Danny Rose and Ryan Bertrand leave training early to continue with their post-match recovery in the gymnasium.

Friday, 7 October 2016 - Phil Jagielka becomes the third member of Garth Southgate's squad to withdraw because of injury. The Everton captain's injury is with his thigh. He will not be replaced. Gary Cahill also misses training, suffering from a sore throat, but he should be fit to face Malta tomorrow.
