England fixtures for the World Cup. Here are the key dates for England’s World Cup campaign preparations, those important dates to put in your calendar as your track England’s progress towards the World Cup 2010. Fabio Capello is nearing the dates which will end a lot of speculation surrounding who will fill the strikers places in the squad, and which players will get the nods to cover for crucial positions. Betting on England at the World Cup is gathering pace, despite a recent drop of one place in the FIFA World Rankings, where they fell to eighth after a strange reshuffle of the points system. Anyway, that will not affect the preparations which England have to go through, but what will effect them is some of the important dates which are on the near horizon.

By scouring the best bookmakers for betting on the World Cup you will be able to get your early bets down on England’s performances in South Africa. The outright winner market is available, along with individual match odds and markets such as top goalscorer, which Wayne Rooney must be in with a shout for. There are still some domestic and European dates to negotiate first though, as well as two international friendlies against Mexico and Japan respectively. With injury scares to the likes of Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole throughout the season, Fabio Capello will be hoping that the England starting eleven which he has in his head, all come through these final matches unscathed.

England Pre World Cup Important Dates

May 24th
– England v Mexico. The first of two final warm up games before England’s curtain raiser at the 2010 World Cup on June 12th against the USA. Mexico will provide some interesting opponents for Capello as he will get to take a look at his side and any fringe players may get their last chance to impress.

May 30th
– England v Japan in Austria. This is the last action England will face ahead of the World Cup. By now the England boss will have a firm picture in his mind of who he will be taking with him on the plane to South Africa. Two days later he has to announce his official World Cup Squad.

June 1st – England name their 23 representatives to FIFA, who will represent the nation in South Africa. England head to Rustenburg the following day to settle into their training camp.
