With several young English players impressing in recent international friendlies, the future of the England team looks promising.
But what does it have in store for some of the ‘older’ players in the squad, such as current skipper Wayne Rooney.
With the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott all waiting in the wings there have been calls from the punters here in the Transfer Tavern, for Roy Hodgson to drop Rooney from the squad completely!
That would still be a massive call for Hodgson to make with Rooney the most experienced member of the squad, who still does have a lot to offer.
Of course, he recently became the country’s top scorer when he passed Sir Bobby Charlton with his 50th goal for the Three Lions.
But should Hodgson decided that Rooney’s international days are now behind him, who would replace him as skipper.
Our landlord here in the Tavern has compiled a list of FIVE potential candidates to replace Wayne Rooney has England captain…..
