Peering ahead through the gloom, and desperately hoping England doesn’t have a team based around the usual suspects (Terry, Ferdinand, Lampard and Gerrard) by the time the Euro 2012 finals come around, here’s something like the more progressive starting team I’d like to see England field in Poland & Ukraine:
Sadly, I think inflexible Fabio Capello will stick with the same old names. For England’s national team, tomorrow never comes, yet one good look at the current Germany team is all we need to see why we’ve failed routinely since 1966: you simply HAVE to take a chance on potential.
And on the bench, a few names bubbling under, with both Euro 2012 and the 2014 World Cup in mind: Frank Fielding, Kieran Gibbs, Chris Smalling, Michael Mancienne, Jack Rodwell, Marc Albrighton, Jordan Henderson, Theo Walcott, Daniel Sturridge.
Who would you like to see in England’s team for Euro 2012?
