Diary

Wednesday, 23 August 2017 - England's record goalscorer and most capped outfield player, Wayne Rooney has retired from international football after turning down the chance to be part of the squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers. The Everton striker was asked by England boss Gareth Southgate to be involved against Malta and Slovakia. "Every time I was selected was a real privilege but I believe now is the time to bow out," said the 31-year-old. The former Manchester United captain scored 53 times in 119 internationals.

Thursday, 24 August 2017 - Gareth Southgate announces his squad for the upcoming qualification matches. Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah and Leicester defender Harry Maguire have been included for the first time. There is also a return for Arsenal's Danny Welbeck, who last featured eighteen months ago.

Bank Hoilday Monday, 28 August 2017 - All players from all levels report to St. George's Park.

Tuesday, 29 August 2017 - Jordan Pickford is the first casualty
. A Football Association statement said: "Having reported to St George's Park on Sunday evening, the 23-year-old underwent an assessment on a muscle injury sustained playing for his club. After discussions between England and Everton medics, it was decided it was in the player's best interests to return to Finch Farm for further treatment."  Kieran Tripper and Phil Jones also both missed today's training session, however, both are expected to particpate tomorrow. Under-21 goalkeeper Freddie Woodman joins in with the senior training session.

Wednesday, 30 August 2017 - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has a medical with Liverpool FC doctors at St. Gerorge's Park. Kieran Trippier again misses training but Phil Jones has resumed.

Thursday, 31 August 2017 - As the England squad prepare to fly out to Malta, Kieran Tripper again misses training and returns to his club at Tottenham Hotspur. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is announced as a Liverpool FC player.

Friday, 1 September 2017 - England moved a step closer to World Cup qualification as they overcame a night of frustration to beat Malta. Despite 78% of first-half possession in Attard, Gareth Southgate's side went in goalless at the break against a team which had lost all six Group F matches. Harry Kane finally broke the deadlock but the match was in the balance until Ryan Bertrand's 85th-minute drive. Danny Welbeck and Kane both scored in injury time as England finally asserted their dominance.

Saturday, 2 September 2017 - The England team have one final training session in Malta before terurning to England.

Sunday, 3 September 2017 - The 26-man squad return to training at Tottenham Hotspurs training facilities in Enfield as Gareth Southgate reveals that Henderson will retain the captaincy against Slovakia, and both Joe Hart and Phil Jones keep their places.
