Midfielders

Jack Wilshere - Arsenal
Hopefully injury-free by this point Wilshere should be one of world football’s most prized assets at the age of 29. He’ll be spearheading England’s midfield and looking to lead them to glory.

Will Hughes - Derby County
The Derby midfielder has gained vital experience of the past couple of seasons, becoming an integral part of the setup at Pride Park. The Rams will be hoping to keep him as long as they can but great things beckon for this future star.

Raheem Sterling - Liverpool
Maturity will help bring the best out of the dynamic winger who will be well on his way to becoming an Anfield legend by the age of 27 and will be a regular part of the England setup.

Nathan Redmond - Norwich City
Birmingham academy graduate Redmond has impressed in his short time with Norwich showing his desire to beat his man and never letting defenders rest. Redmond will be 28 and will be amongst those looking to secure a starting berth.

Wilfred Zaha - Manchester United
New arrival at Old Trafford, Zaha has been tipped as the new Cristiano Ronaldo and England will be hoping he reaches those heady heights. Sure to be involved if Zaha is still on the staff at Old Trafford aged 29 he should be a sure fire starter.

Nick Powell - Manchester United
Another United man in the fold, Powell has everything needed to be a first grade creative force for club and country, his eye for goal and impressive physical presence could make him a pivotal player in England’s midfield.

Ross Barkley - Everton
Having made his senior debut last week, Everton midfielder Barkley will be looking to have forced his way into the regular starting line-up for England. Having been likened to Michael Ballack by Martinez, a player of that ilk could be priceless to England’s hopes.

Jordan Henderson - Liverpool
32-year-old Henderson has started to turn things around at Liverpool having looked like his career at Anfield was almost over before it began and his experience in the middle of the park will be a big asset to England’s hopes.

Tom Ince - Blackpool
Blackpool winger Ince will be hoping to upgrade his under-21 caps to a full senior appearance soon but may need Premier League football to help him achieve that goal. That won’t be far away for the explosive winger who can operate on either flank and will hope to follow in his dad’s footsteps by representing England in a WorldCup.
