World Cup 2014: England's right midfield options (1)

If there is one thing England do not struggle with, that is speed. England - in my opinion - have some of the best and quickest wingers in the world and we can use them to our advantage no matter who the opponent is.

I think that when left-backs see they are up against the likes of Theo Walcott, Aaron Lennon or Andros Townsend, they really start to quake in their boots as they will be to blame if a winger gets around them and whips in a cross to set-up a goal.

Roy Hodgson's selected wingers will be so so important to England's attack and especially counter-attacking play. 

In the last few games, England have gone with Spurs youngster Andros Townsend, who has really lit up the national squad, producing committed displays in each of his four appearances for the Three Lions.

Townsend scored on his debut for England and since then has not just impressed manager, Roy Hodgson but also the majority of the country's fan base. 

He is now giving serious competition to general England wingers like James Milner, Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson. And now there is a real debate between who should start for England, Walcott or Townsend?

I have chosen two right midfielders for my England squad because I believe you need two for every position, so if one isn't performing then you have a player spare to come in and hopefully make an impact that the primary winger couldn't do. 

England's wingers need to be quick and good in attack, and I believe England have two brilliant options specifically for that.
