Seaman ready for England
Seaman resumed training on Tuesday and should prove his fitness for Arsenal against Liverpool on Monday night, before joining the England squad at Bisham Abbey on Tuesday.
Seaman's recovery means Nigel Martyn's hopes of a return to the England team after four years could be dashed. Martyn has been in superb form this year and was watched by Ray Clemence, England's goalkeeping advisor, on Saturday. However, with David James in uncertain form, Martyn could be part of the squad in place of the Liverpool goalkeeper.
Also recovered is Teddy Sheringham, who is likely to form a striking partnership with Robbie Fowler although the England coach, Glenn Hoddle, will have to find a place for Matt Le Tissier if he is to be consistent. With Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand both injured, there is the outside prospect of a recall for Andy Cole, who has flourished since his return to the Manchester United side. Another possible new face for the Easter Saturday friendly is Wimbledon's Robbie Earle.
