1. Jack Wilshere - Arsenal
Wilshere has been labelled as a future England captain by many, including current captain Steven Gerrard and football pundit Robbie Savage. Wilshere is now a consistent starter for England alongside Gerrard and Frank Lampard. His runs through the middle of the pitch give England huge momentum going forward and he is defensively strong as well. So long as Wilshere stays fit he has the potential and ability to become a future England captain.
2. Phil Jones
Jones is a strong, traditional centre back who has shown he is very versatile playing at right back and in central midfield as well. He is strong, quick and technically sound. Jones has proven himself to arguably the greatest manager in football, Sir Alex Ferguson, and he is a very hot prospect for the future.
3. Daniel Sturridge
The former Chelsea forward has been in spectacular form for Liverpool finding the net four times in four games. He has shown good pace and technique and proven a clinical finisher, leaving Brendan Rogers in serious doubt as to where to play last season's top scorer Luis Suarez. Sturridge has shown he is capable of spearheading the attack for England.
4. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Unfortunately the man known as 'The Ox' sustained an injury in his first game this season, however Oxlade-Chamberlain has shown he can tear up defences with his pace and dribbling. He has shown good form for England as well, scoring against Brazil this summer. He could prove to be a key player for England.
5. Ross Barkley
The central midfielder has been in good form for Everton, scoring a superb goal in the first game of the season. So far this season he has shown he can pass, shoot and control the ball, earning a call-up from Roy Hodgson into the England set up and may make it to Brazil if he keeps up his fine form.
Players such as Wilfred Zaha, Nathan Redmond, Jack Rodwell, Jack Butland, Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling may also prove to be key men for England in the future.
