Many English players are often overrated as fans hope they will become superstars. But unfortunately, for some Englishman, they just aren't up to the highest standard.

So, here's a list of the top three overrated English players:

3. Kyle Walker (RB)

The Spurs right-back is one of the most overrated players in the country. Many pundit's are tipping him as the man to replace Glen Johnson for England, however when given the chance he has not impressed.

Against Germany, he was sloppy and gave the ball away almost every time he tried to pass and was without attacking intent for most of the match.

It would be unfair to judge him on just one match but he has never really impressed for England and is average in the Premier League. He has made an average of one cross every two matches this season and should not be the future England right back, I would say for that role - Carl Jenkinson or Nathaniel Clyne.

2. Tom Cleverley (CM)

Many question whether he would be called up to the England international setup if he didn't play for Manchester United, and they're right to wonder.

He hasn't impressed recently and yet still consistently plays (or attempts to) for England. He was an exciting prospect when he was younger but now at the age of 24 he hasn't matured into the talent England fans hoped he would be.

He can still grow but he will have to do it now or never, he can play well but for me he is too inconsistent and should not play for England or Manchester United when you compare him with the other midfielders at their disposal. 

1. Ashley Young (LW or RW)

He is undoubtedly one of the worst players I have ever seen in an England shirt. Only occasionally he plays well, maybe once every season, and yet he still plays games regularly for both club and country.

Fortunately with Andros Townsend and Adam Lallana coming in for England this shouldn't be a problem for too much longer.

He lacks passing, shooting, dribbling and crossing - in-fact the only thing he consistently does is dive and cheat, another reason why he should be dropped. Undoubtedly the most overrated English player at the moment.
