    I suppose lol, but I think it would be a mistake not to take him, especially if we get out of the groups. Plus if defoe or welbeck got injured you could shove walcott up there

    I'd even be inclined to take crouch as well he's awsome for england

    If England play 4-3-3 like they should:

    GK
    Hart
    Foster
    Green

    Def
    Walker
    Richards
    Terry
    Cahill
    Lescott
    Jagielka
    Cole
    Baines

    Mids
    Wilshere
    Parker
    Lampard
    Gerrard
    Milner
    Barry

    Wingers
    Walcott
    Young
    Johnson
    Sturridge (Also good back up for Striker)

    Strikers
    Rooney
    Welbeck

    Starting Lineup:
    Hart

    Richards
    Terry
    Cahill
    Cole

    Parker
    Wilshere
    Lampad

    Walcott
    Rooney
    Young
    What about for the first 2 games when Rooney is suspended?

    And also, (I saw one post above that mentioned him), but I'm AMAZED none of the pundits have even considered Ruddy as Hart's backup. He's been fantastic at Carrow Road this season!

    ^I've seen Ruddy on Football Focus and Sky Sports News in the last 2 days talking about England so I'd say he hasn't gone unnoticed

    Starting XI (with Rooney)

    Hart
    Richards, Terry, Ferdinand, Cole
    Lampard, Carrick
    Sturridge -----------------Young

    Gerrard
    Rooney

    Gutted that Scholes isn't in the squad. Is he still retired from International football?

    To the OP...

    You'd take Ben Foster even though he's retired? Good luck with that. And you haven't even included a right back?!

    And is it just me who thinks Scholes can **** off? He retired from England when he was still doing his best for club. He turned down a chance to return at the World Cup in 2012 too, so he can get stuffed.

    I don't really see the point of taking another **** squad full of the same old faces who have been there and failed miserably time and time again. Just grow some balls and throw the kids in, its not like they could do any worse.

    The old, slow, tired, jaded, overpaid bunch of useless ***** we're taking will be lucky to scrape out of the group, and certainly won't get further than the quarters.
