I will be changing this team from time to time depending on what mood i’m in.

So guy’s who am I missing ?……please tell.

Have a look at their future line up. http://soccerlens.com/future-england-lineup-2018/5534/

here for the footballing journey.

    Wilshire, Walcott and Delph are the ones I’d be looking at

  • http://www.inthestands.co.uk Mark

    Sturridge, Muamba, and ranger deserve a shout

  • Ben

    i reckon rooney will still be first team tbh. Lennon would be if he still has the pace, but at 31, probs unlikely

  • http://www.inthestands.co.uk/ Shaw

    It’s likely that some U-16 and 17 players will be in this team but their just not on the scene yet, obviously there are some gems in the lower leagues such as Joe Lewis (who may pip Hart to the number One jersey), Adam Johnson may become world class. There is also Lewis McGugan, Ashley Chambers, Nathaniel Clyne e.t.c

    Obviously only a select few ‘future stars’ make it – Just look at Seth Johnson, Lee Bowyer Alan Smith – Players considered world class at a young age but unable to live up to the hype internationally. – you can never tell.

    This can only be a bit of fun really!

    TBH at 28 i think terry ferdinand and gerrard will be in the team

    32-33 good subs and tbh theyll probably still be good then too.

  • http://www.inthestands.co.uk Mark

    they will be 37-38 yrs old, and most probably retired

  • liam

    kyle walker will be better than naughton, perhaps an experienced milner in that side too
