John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Ashley Cole have all been released from the English squad ahead of the teams friendly fixture with Ghana this weekend.  According to the Chelsea website, the trio have been allowed to return to their club along with several other key English players following the team's 2-0 win versus Wales on Saturday.  This is great news for Chelsea fans, as getting the trio a week off ahead of this important stretch of games is very welcome news indeed.  There is no news yet on who may be called up to replace the 6 released players, but don't count Daniel Sturridge out yet considering his recent form for both club and country.

Chelsea return to action in Stoke on Saturday followed by the home leg of their champions league tie with Manchester United on Wednesday the 6th.  They will continue to play two games per week until they are either eliminated from the Champions League or conclude with the semi-finals, so their will be little rest for the key members of the squad between now and the end of the season.
