FOOTBALL chiefs have revealed that the England team will not meet up at St George’s Park ahead of its next game.

Bosses at the Football Association (FA) took the decision for the senior team to train in London rather than the national football centre to minimise travel time as some players will be featuring in the Carling Cup final ahead of the international game against Denmark on March 5.

A spokesman for the FA said: “Following a meeting of the Club England board, it has been decided that the England men’s senior team will not use the St George’s Park facility ahead of the match with Denmark on March 5.

“Due to the curtailed nature of this meet up, it has been decided that travel time should be minimised as much as possible.

“Therefore on this occasion the team will be based near to Wembley where the game will be played with Denmark.

“This will be the last individual fixture within the international calendar for the foreseeable future as the FIFA schedule changes to incorporate all international matches in pairs, thus making the circumstances unlikely to be repeated.”
