Joe Hart

Obvious choice, although he has made some mistakes the last few months he is easily the best English goalkeeper.

Fraser Forster

Some excellent performances in the Champions League have got him noticed in European football. A very good back-up goalkeeper.

Jack Butland

Highly unlikely to get a game, but would be a good experience for the young talented goalkeeper.

Kyle Walker

First choice right-back in my opinion, he is rapid, strong and provides a good threat in attack.

Glen Johnson

Rarely makes mistakes and does the job, does not have the same spark as Walker though.

Gary Cahill

Has become a regular for England recently and has done well, is also playing well for Chelsea and will most likely start at the World Cup.

Phil Jagielka

Has formed quite a solid partnership with the aforementioned Cahill for England, which is unlikely to be broken up. Has been brilliant for Everton recently.

Chris Smalling

Does not play every game for Manchester United, but has proved a valuable asset and is a solid defender, quick and a good aerial threat. Can also play right-back.

Phil Jones

Very likely he will be on the plane to Brazil, he can play in multiple positions and gives his all wherever he plays. Good player for England to have.

Leighton Baines

May possibly have overtaken Ashley Cole as first choice England left-back by the time of the World Cup. One of the very best full-backs in the world.

Ashley Cole

Very good defensively even though he is ageing, lots of experience so a really good player for England to have in Brazil.

Steven Gerrard

Maybe his last international tournament, but still playing great football for Liverpool. The England captain is one of the few stand out players in the England team.

Frank Lampard

Debatable due to age, but still a great central midfielder capable of brilliance. Very experienced and a calm head to steady England.

Jack Wilshere

Form has been on and off and has had a long injury spell, but is getting good game time at Arsenal. A fantastic naturally gifted player when in form and can be one of England's most important players.

Michael Carrick

Massively underrated player, should be in the starting XI as he can sit deep and control things allowing others to be further up the field. One of the best England players. 

Ross Barkley

Has been brilliant recently for Everton and is easily talented enough to go to Brazil, he is very naturally talented and could be a great asset for England.

Theo Walcott

Great player to have due to his raw pace, can scare opponents when he runs at them. May not start for England but could be really useful to Roy Hodgson.

Andros Townsend 

His last few performances for England have been excellent and he is a real bright spark, could be a dark horse for England.

James Milner

Has been called 'boring' many times but he is a great player for England to have, he works very hard and gets the job done, he is very disciplined wherever he plays.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Injured at the moment and has barely featured this season, a debatable one but he is very naturally talented and is such a threat on the ball.

Wayne Rooney

No-brainer, probably the only world class player in the England team and is the player that is most likely to get England anywhere in the competition.

Daniel Sturridge

Has been brilliant for Liverpool this season and hopefully will continue that for England in Brazil.

Danny Welbeck

Always performs for England and has formed a great partnership with Wayne Rooney, he puts in a good shift and is a real asset for England.

Reserves

Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Tom Cleverley, Joleon Lescott, Ashley Young.
