Wayne Rooney – England

The Manchester United star scored the opener in the Three Lions’ 4-1 win over Montenegro on Friday night that guaranteed them a playoff spot, but Ukraine defeating Poland meant another win is required when the Poles travel to Wembley next Tuesday.

The pressure is on England as Ukraine’s final match is against minnows San Marino, so anything other than a win for them is unlikely to happen. Failing to defeat Poland would be a huge blow to Roy Hodgson’s team, as it was a group they should really top and there are some very tricky teams lurking in the playoffs to cause more heartbreak for Rooney and his colleagues.
