Top 10 Uncapped Players that could make the England World Cup squad
Roy Hodgson has not been scared to blood youngsters and hand players their first caps during his reign as England boss. The World Cup is less than a year away and, if England do indeed make it to Brazil, there could be room for more rookies in the white shirts. FREEbets.org.uk have had a look at 10 possibilities for surprise caps.
1. Adam Lallana
The 25-year-old has made it into an England squad once before but failed to get on the pitch. He is clearly in Roy Hodgson’s thinking though and with Southampton improving all the time if he is a big part of a successful team then he could well force himself into the national squad.
2. Nathan Dyer
The wide areas in England’s midfield are a lot less nailed down than the central positions so there are places up for grabs for in-form wingers and Dyer could just be the man. He has been a regular part of Swansea’s brilliant last couple of seasons and if he keeps it up he should not be overlooked.
3. Danny Rose
Having started as a winger Rose is now playing at left-back week-in-week-out for Spurs which could well hurt his chances of playing internationally with Leighton Baines and Ashley Cole ahead of him. However, an injury to either of them and the 23-year-old will immediately fill the second choice role.
4. Andros Townsend
The Tottenham winger was in the England squad for the contests with Moldova and Montenegro in September but did not make it onto the field. He has continued to produce fine form for Spurs since though and there is little reason for him not to be back in the fold in the near future.
5. Ashley Westwood
Some would see this as a long outsider to make an England squad but ask Aston Villa fans about Westwood and they will tell you they have a star on their hands. He plays an unassuming role in central midfield that will go unnoticed on highlights packages but delights a manager.
6. Kevin Nolan
Given the 31-year-old’s fantastic club career it is ridiculous that he has never pulled on a full England shirt, especially when you consider a number of players who have. Nolan has played for some unfashionable teams (largely under Sam Allardyce) and this has cost him but he has managed double figures in terms of goals from midfield on four occasions in the Premier League which is some achievement. The odd call-up late in a career has happened in recent years (think Kevin Davies, Leon Osman and Rickie Lambert) and few would begrudge Nolan his chance.
7. Ravel Morrison
Another West Ham man, the 20-year-old has accrued something of a bad-boy reputation early on in his career but it looks like his talent is coming to the fore now. He is performing well for the Hammers and if he can achieve some consistency over an extended period of time then he has every chance of representing his country.
8. Nathan Redmond
The Norwich winger stepped up to the Premier League this summer and has looked good in the yellow and green in Norfolk. As mentioned there is room for wingers in the England team and Redmond is not a million miles away from grabbing one of those places.
9. Gary Hooper
Hooper has been on the fringes of the England squad over the last couple of years thanks to his goal scoring exploits for Celtic and he will feel that now he is in the Premier League with Norwich he can finally make it into the full squad. Hodgson has a lack of options up front and if Hooper can make double figures this season he could well be on the plane to Brazil.
10. Fraser Forster
The Celtic keeper has been a regular face in England squads over the last year but is yet to get across the white line for his country. There is no doubt that he will strap on the gloves in anger in the near future as Hodgson will need to decide on the number two to Joe Hart and Forster could well be that man.
