Central Defenders

Steven Caulker (Cardiff, 30)

After leaving Tottenham for Cardiff in search of first-team football, Steven Caulker will have had plenty of top flight experience by 2022. With the physique and mental attributes to be a top class central defender, Caulker will be in contention to start for England.

Phil Jones (Manchester United, 30)

Phil Jones was described as 'a future England captain' by Sir Alex Ferguson, and may well be taking up that mantle in 2022. After learning his trade at right-back and defensive midfield, the versatile Jones could be an asset in other positions if injuries strike during the World Cup.

John Stones (Everton, 28)

Hailed in early September as England's 'best young defender' by Everton manager Roberto Martinez, Stones is yet to have a Premier League start. The young Everton defender could be one of England's best backup defenders.

Martin Kelly (Liverpool, 32)

Kelly has yet to nail down a first-team spot at Liverpool, and has played the majority of his games at right-back, something that could come in handy in a small World Cup squad.
