Published Add your comment

England face Wales tonight at Wembly in a crucial Euro 2012 qualifier. England currently top Gorup G, while Wales sit at the bottom.

Wales will be high in confidence after Friday’s win over Montenegro, but need 3 points if they are to have any hope of qualifying.

Without the suspended Craig Bellamy, Gareth Bale will be the focus of the Welsh line up as they look to hit England on the counter attack.

Fabio Capello has said he will set out to nullify Bale, with James Milner rumoured to start ahead of Theo Walcott in a more defensive role.

Frank Lampard and Andy Carroll are also in contention to return to the starting line up as England look for their first win at home in over a year.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly made Mario Gotze his top transfer target. The German Messi is also attracting interest from Manchester United.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is said to be keen on Dutch striker Klas Jan Huntelaar as he looks to identify targets to boost his attack.

Fiorentina are keen to open contract talks with winger Stefan Jovetic amid speculation Chelsea are set readying a bid for January.

Owen Coyle has expressed his delight at Bolton’s transfer dealings after the club brought in David N’Gog, Dedrick Boyata and Gael Kakuta.
