COACH: Roy Hodgson
WORLD RANKING: 7
QUALIFIED: Group G winners
BEST EURO FINISH: Semi-finals (1996)
PLAYING STYLE: Counter-attack
Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Parker, Gerrard; Walcott, Young, Milner; Rooney.
Potentially one of the best defensive teams in the tournament, with Joe Hart now among the world’s best keepers, and perhaps three of the back four coming straight from Chelsea’s rock-solid Champions League-winning side.
Injuries have left them appallingly light in midfield, and the attack relies too heavily on Wayne Rooney – who can’t play in the first two games.
Club: Man United
Even though he’ll miss the first two games England need his goals and creativity to progress to the latter stages.
