    What do you mean by their league? National football teams don't play in any 'leagues'. Do you mean the World Cup and Euro Championships? If it's the latter, they're struggling in their group and will probably not qualify.

    Steve McClaren is the new head coach, with John Terry his choice to replace David Beckham as captain. The revised management team now features Terry Venables, the former head coach. Beckham was left out of McClaren's first international squad for the friendly match against Greece on 16 August 2006, and was not recalled until the friendly against Brazil on 1 June 2007, almost a year later.

    After a good start with three straight victories against Greece, Andorra, and Macedonia, England had a goalless draw against the same Macedonia side on home ground, followed by a 2–0 defeat to Croatia in Zagreb, which ended Paul Robinson's run of six consecutive clean sheets for his country. This defeat was the worst competitive defeat suffered by England in almost exactly thirteen years, since the loss to Holland by the same score in the qualifying matches for the 1994 World Cup. England's unimpressive form continued as they lost 1–0 to Spain in a friendly match, with the cold and disappointed crowd booing off the home side at the final whistle. England's return to competitive football in March 2007 resulted in a disappointing 0–0 draw in Tel Aviv against Israel with yet another jeering and booing from English fans. Their next match was another poor performance, as they struggled to a 3-0 win over the tiny, semi-professional team of Andorra. England looked uncomfortable during the game and though they dominated possession they failed to produce opportunities in front of goal. England failed to score any goals in the first half and the team suffered heavy booing from fans throughout the game.

    On June 1 England took on Brazil at Wembley Stadium, seven years after the old stadium was demolished. McClaren recalled Beckham after 11 months away from the international squad, and after an even first half, captain John Terry latched on to a free-kick from Beckham, his predecessor as skipper, to score the first full international goal at the new Wembley. The Brazilians equalized with just 30 seconds remaining to level the match at 1–1. Following the friendly in Wembley, England met Estonia in the Euro 2008 qualifiers on June 6. Goals by Joe Cole, Peter Crouch and Michael Owen, the latter two assisted by the recalled Beckham, led to a 3–0 victory against Estonia in Tallinn, bringing England back up to 3 points behind Croatia in the group.

    After the 2007 summer break, England returned to the qualification campaign with straight 3–0 victories over Israel and Russia at Wembley, despite the omission or withdrawal of Gary Neville, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Owen Hargreaves and Frank Lampard due to injury. Michael Owen scored three goals in the two matches, enabling him to become the fourth player to reach the 40 mark. In addition, Emile Heskey was recalled after three years away and started both matches, while newer selections like Gareth Barry and Shaun Wright Phillips were also included in the starting eleven. A perceived hangover regarding the selection of the goalkeeper after Paul Robinson's recent indifferent form was overblown as McClaren kept faith in him ahead of David James. England scored another 3-0 win a month later against Estonia, for which Sol Campbell was recalled after almost 18 months out of the team, but then in the return game against Russia in Moscow, England lost 2-1, the first time the defence had conceded in qualification since the loss against Croatia. England's qualification hopes now rest on Russia dropping points in either of their final two qualifiers and England must win their remaining game at wembley against an Croatian team who are unbeaten in the group on 26 points to have any chance of progression to the finals. In the FIFA world rankings Croatia are currently ranked one place above England. England's position of 11th is 'below standard' as they rarely drop out of the top 10.
