World Cup Qualifiers

England now stand on the brink of qualification with an exemplary record thus far as they prepare to meet Kazakhstan on Saturday in Almaty, and Andorra the following Wednesday at Wembley. In truth, Enlgland should not really have any problems having already beaten both these teams convincingly in the earlier rounds.
Carrick misses out having received an injury, Ferdinand and Ashly Cole are excused training as a precaution and Paul Robinson is recalled to the squad after injury to David James and Ben Foster. Also called into the squad are Shaun Wright-Phillips, James Milner and Gary Neville who has a long-standing friendship with David Beckham.
In other news, the home nations have agreed to allow and England team to play in the London 2012 Olympics. Northern Ireland, Wales and finally Scotland have signed an agreement to say they will not object to an England side representing Britain at the Olympics. Scotland have finally agreed despite their initial objections perceiving that standing in the way of the England team will only ultimately reflect badly on Scotland.
