England: Possible World Cup 2014 wildcards (1)

Published Add your comment

England's major tournament squad announcements have never been short of a surprise inclusion or two. Take, for example, Sven-Goran Eriksson naming a fresh-faced 17-year-old Theo Walcott in his 2006 squad and Fabio Capello's controversial inclusion of Emile Heskey in 2010.

In the four years between any World Cup, most players will earn their right for a spot on the plane to a World Cup over four solid seasons in top-flight football. However, there is always one or two that hit form at just the right time to creep into the England manager's mind. And with English metatarsals extremely prone to injury close to a major tournament, a place in the squad could become available at the last minute.

With friendlies against Chile and Germany coming up, Roy Hodgson may have a slight idea who will need to have their bags packed come June. However, there is a host of players who could find themselves being selected as wildcard picks if things go well between now and then.
