Hours from crucial Friday fixtures of the qualifying campaign to the World Cup 2014, the squads are ready for competition and here are some of the main team news of the biggest selections.

Roy Hodgson can count on most of the best English players except Ashley Cole, Glen Johnson and Theo Walcott.
Squad: Joe Hart (Manchester City), Fraser Forster (Celtic), John Ruddy (Norwich City); Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka (both Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Phil Jones, Chris Smalling (both Manchester United), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur);
Ross Barkley (Everton), Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley (both Manchester United), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur);
Jermaine Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Rickie Lambert (Southampton), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck (both Manchester United).

Daniele De Rossi, Lorenzo Insigne, Marco Verratti, Mario Balotelli will not help Italy in Denmark and Cesare Prandelli is set to try the second-string squad out.

Germany are expected to get the missing three points against Ireland without injured Marco Reus, Mario Gomez, Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski.

Belgium arrived in Zagreb without some of their star players, such as Christian Benteke and Vincent Kompany. Thomas Vermaelen and Marouane Fellaini remain a doubt.
