Diary

Wednesday, 24 January 2018 - Following the draw in Lausanne, England will face Spain and Croatia in League A of the inaugural UEFA Nations League. The first group games take place in September this year, with the finals scheduled for June 2019.

Tuesday, 28 August 2018 -
Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill are stepping aside from international football to allow manager Gareth Southgate to bring younger players in. But both players say they are "not shutting the door completely".  Leicester City striker Vardy says he first told Southgate of his intentions at the World Cup in Russia. "This has been on my mind for a while. I'm not getting any younger and you can see, to be fair to the gaffer, he wants to make it more youthful, which obviously had its benefits during the World Cup." He has told Southgate he also wishes to concentrate on his club football and his family. "Gareth said that he felt I still had a lot to offer, and we've not shut the door completely. If the worst came to happen and everyone was injured, then obviously I wouldn't say no." Chelsea defender Cahill said: "I can see it is now going to a younger generation and I think it is the perfect time for me to take a step back," Cahill told Chelsea TV. I've been hugely honoured to play for my country and I would never shut the door. I've said that if there are injuries in the future and I'm needed to come and play then, of course, I'm available."

Thursday, 8 September 2018, 2.00pm - At St. George's Park, Gareth Southgate names his first England squad since the World Cup Finals. Southgate has retained the bulk of the Finals squad, with 18 of the 23 keeping their places. Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana and James Tarkowski all return, as does goalkeeper Alex McCarthy. Their is also a recall for Luke Shaw. The five that miss out are the aforementioned Cahill and Vardy, Phil Jones and Nick Pope miss out through injury and Ashley Young, who has been left out to allow the younger members to participate. Southgate: "With us only being three games into the season, I felt some continuity was important. Those who were with us in the summer deserve the right to go again."

Monday, 3 September 2018 - 22 of the 23 man squad arrive at St. George's Park. The only member who has not is Manchester City's Raheem Sterling, who has withdrawn because of a back problem. Southgate has no plans to call up a replacement.

Tuesday, 4 September 2018 - Dominic Solanke has joined in the first day of training, whereas Adam Lallana has returned to Liverpool to have a groin strain assessed by staff. Also missing from training was goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Southgate has called up the uncapped Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli as cover. His call up comes just nine days after making his Premier League debut, after starting the season behind first choice keeper, Fabri.

Thursday, 6 September 2018 - A day after training was held behind closed doors, today's training included two members of the under-20 squad. Eddie Nketiah and Marcus Tavernier.

Saturday, 8 September 2018 - England 1 Spain 2: England suffered their first home loss since March 2016, and first competive home loss since November 2007. Their Nations League campaign opened with defeat as they were beaten by Spain in their first match since the World Cup. Marcus Rashford gave England the perfect start with an 11th-minute strike from Luke Shaw's pass but Spain responded with an almost instant equaliser thanks to Saul Niguez's low finish. Rodrigo Moreno then took advantage of poor marking at a free-kick to score the winner from close range after 32 minutes. England suffered a blow just after half-time when Shaw was taken off on a stretcher with a head injury following an accidental collision with Dani Carvajal but they rallied late on and could have earned a draw.

Sunday, 9 September 2018 - After only seven outfield players were involved in training at St. George's Park, Southgate has drafted in Leicester City's Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray into the squad from the under-21s. Both receive their first ever senior call-up. Luke Shaw, however, who suffered concussion in the 47th minute of the match against Spain yesterday, remains at St. George's, but will return to Old Trafford tomorrow.

Monday, 10 September 2018 - As Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray arrive at St. George's Park, it is announced that Dele Alli has withdrawn because of a slight muscle strain. He will return to Tottenham Hotspur later today. The 22 players take part in training this morning before leaving for Leicester.
In the press conference later in the day, Southgate confirms Harry Kane will be rested and that Eric Dier will captain the side. As much as nine changes are expected for the next match with the manager hoping to give much of the squad a run out.
