5 potential England captains to follow Wayne Rooney

Though the International break is usually one that is dreaded by many of our regular punters here in the Transfer Tavern, many are excited to see England go toe-to-toe with some of Europe’s finest, as the Three Lions prepare to take on Spain and France.

Indeed, it is the first time in a while England fans could feel a bit optimistic about the potential of their side. Roy Hodgson has slowly but surely built a strong outfit, which appears to have the correct blend of youth and experience.

While the likes of Delli Alli, Jamie Vardy and Eric Dier will all look to make their own mark in an England Jersey, the regulars such as James Milner, Joe Hart and of course captain Wayne Rooney continue to provide experienced heads both in the dressing room and on the pitch.

With Wayne Rooney recently turning thirty, the punters here began to discuss who could take over from England’s all time record scorer as the captain of the side.
