    • 14:45 Hodgson is wary of a Sunderland side who knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup last weekend: "I saw them on TV at the weekend and they looked very strong against Arsenal. They are very enthusiastic and showed a lot of pace and strength. It will be a difficult game."
    • 14:40 O’Neill is delighted to see Fraizer Campbell called up to the England squad: "It's fantastic. Whether he does or doesn't play, to me, is immaterial at this stage. The news is a great boost - I think it would have been a bit of a surprise for him. If he gets the opportunity, it would be great to take it."
    • 14:35 Martin O’Neill is delighted to see Fraizer Campbell called up to the England squad: "It's fantastic. Whether he does or doesn't play, to me, is immaterial at this stage. The news is a great boost - I think it would have been a bit of a surprise for him. If he gets the opportunity, it would be great to take it."
    • 14:30 Keith Andrews is handed his full West Brom debut, stepping in for the injured Paul Scharner as Roy Hodgson makes one change from the side which thrashed Wolves 5-1. Martin O'Neill's Sunderland are unchanged from the team which beat Arsenal 2-0 in the FA Cup last weekend, with Stephane Sessegnon again ploughing a loan furrow up front.
