Jonathan Woodgate was the only absentee from England training ahead of Wednesday's friendly with the Czech Republic.

The 28-year-old Tottenham defender is not a doubt for the Wembley encounter but was excused a formal session at Arsenal's London Colney training ground on Monday because of his history of fitness problems.

The remainder of Fabio Capello's 23-man squad were present, including 12 players who featured in Premier League on Sunday – Michael Carrick withdrawing after suffering an ankle injury during Manchester United's draw with Newcastle.

Capello is still to name his captain for the game and the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Croatia which follow, although it is believed to be between centre-half duo Rio Ferdinand and John Terry.
