Belarus 1 England 3: Gerrard and Rooney on target as Fabio Capello's side achieve best opening to a qualifying campaign

Rio Ferdinand declared fit for Croatia

Defender Rio Ferdinand has been declared fit and is available for England's crucial World Cup qualifier with Croatia in Zagreb tomorrow evening.

No manager has ever shown faith in me, says Cole

There is a theory that if Joe Cole had grown up in Cadiz instead of Camden and was called Jose Carbonero or something similar, we would all appreciate his beguiling – occasionally frustrating – talent as a footballer all the more. Cole is stuck with being English, however, and England's match-winner against Andorra appealed yesterday to Fabio Capello to be the first manager to show real faith in him when he picks his team to face Croatia in the World Cup qualifier tomorrow night.

Rio Ferdinand completes training test

England centre-back Rio Ferdinand will travel to Zagreb for the World Cup qualifier against Croatia after coming through a full training session in Barcelona.

Ferdinand hopeful of winning fitness battle for crucial Croatia match

Rio Ferdinand is hoping to train with the rest of the England squad today for the first time in almost a week. The 29-year-old defender told Fabio Capello his back and neck feels better after physiotherapy and rehabilitation work in the swimming pool and gym at the team hotel in Barcelona yesterday.

Andorra 0 England 2: It's now or never for Capello to conjure up Rooney's real spirit

There are only so many times you can ask Wayne Rooney whether he thinks his lack of goals for England are a problem. And, judging by his response to the question on Saturday night, only so many times that Rooney is prepared to answer it before the kind of incident which ends with someone having to call security. Nevertheless, the Rooney conundrum is one of the biggest facing Fabio Capello as he decides the best way to take on Croatia on Wednesday in the game that will define his reign.

Positive vibes are scarce with a team this out of tune

John Terry asked for positive vibes so here goes. England did what they had to do by getting their World Cup qualifying campaign off to a winning start, kept a clean sheet and, er, that's it. I'm sorry John, this is difficult.

Hungry players put pasta back on England menu

Fabio Capello has proved to be an uncompromising manager in his nine months in charge of the England squad but this week he has made his first concession to the players over their strict dietary regime. After complaints that many felt light-headed and even nauseous because of the rigorously-controlled diet before the Czech Republic friendly last month, they are now allowed to have greater choice over their pre-match meal.

Owen out in the cold as Capello omits him from squad

Michael Owen's England career looked last night as if it could be over after Fabio Capello left the striker out of the national squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Croatia. The England manager sprang another surprise by picking Fulham's Jimmy Bullard as the fourth-choice central midfielder.

Capello backs McClaren's man as he puts his faith in Terry

Fabio Capello will go into England's World Cup qualification campaign with the same captain as his predecessor Steve McClaren and, virtually, the same team as favoured by Sven-Goran Eriksson.
