Condition of the English team for five months before the World Cup in Brazil.
Goalkeepers: Hart , Foster, Forster. Defenders: Dzhagelka , Cahill , Johnson, Ashley Cole , Baines , Smalling , F.Dzhons . Midfielders : Wilshere , Lampard , Carrick , Gerrard . Forwards: Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge .
Apparently, Roy Hodgson has already determined with the goalkeepers , defenders and set the main striker .
Goalkeeper. Joe Hart returned to base ” Man City “, but errors in the last two years has made so much that there is no certainty in Brazil will not.
Hart – the prof? Regresses as the best English goalkeeper
Roy Hodgson : ” Hart – my first room . He never let me down “
Protection Center . Gary Cahill and Phil Dzhagelka played well in qualifying , but each class separately in serious doubt .
Right flank of the attack . Theo Walcott is not coming , Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not played too long , the arrival of Juan Mata reduce the already limited playing time Ashley Young in “MU” . James Milner rustic Adam Lallane lacks experience , but about Andros Townsend is still little understood .
Left flank protection. Leighton Baines and Ashley Cole apparently left without Kieran Gibbs World Cup and Luke Shaw.
The most difficult choice
Wilshere , Lampard or Carrick? Steven Gerrard – the most important player for England Hodgson , with the second opornikom no clarity . Lampard has played the most matches in qualifying, but obviously old, Wilshere did not score the optimal shape , Carrick , as current Gerrard , noticeably lacking athleticism.
Whether to take Ross Barkley? Attacking midfielder ” Everton ” this season has impressed all – but so far only at the club level . If the injury is not Barkley knocks from the ” butterscotch ” and in a friendly match on March it will have at least some sense , Hodgson should take it as a wild card.
Who will be the fourth striker? Rooney, Sturridge and Danny Welbeck will go exactly with the other strikers nothing is clear . Andy Carroll missed the entire season , Ricky Lambert played for four games , Jermain Defoe is not playing for ” Tottenham ” and very soon leave for MLS .
The next time
Theo Walcott . Exactly go back and probably would have played at the base, but due to injury remain at home.
Kyle Walker . With two players who can play right and center ( Smalling and Phil Jones ) , it is logical to leave the house Walker , more noticeable in the attack, but owns only one role.
Tom Cleverley . Injury , loss of form at club level , progress Henderson – all this leaves almost no one of the favorites Hodgson chance to appear in Brazil.
Hart , Foster, Forster – Dzhagelka , Cahill , Smalling , F.Dzhons , Gl.Dzhonson , Ashley Cole, Baines – Gerrard , Lampard , Wilshere , Carrick , Henderson , Barkley, Milner, Townsend, Lallana – Rooney , Welbeck , Sturridge , Lambert .
