1. Tom Cleverley

Roy Hodgson has always shown a great amount of faith in Cleverley, having shown some early promise at Manchester United and during a loan spell at Wigan.

The country believed that he could be a future great. However, we must now face some harsh truths.

Cleverley is 24. He can no longer be considered one for the future, he must be producing now and, to be frank, he isn't.

No goals and no assist sum up what has been a string of mediocre (at best) performances from Cleverley this season. In a United side lacking spark he has failed to produce anything to turn their fortunes.

Just this week a petition to have Cleverley removed from the squad received 7,000 signatures.

Better options would include a recall for the more experienced Gareth Barry or Hull's Tom Huddlestone - both of whom are consistent, if not spectacular, and offer a more defensive-minded option.

Another more controversial selection could have been one of West Ham duo Mark Noble and Kevin Nolan, although I am unsure whether either man possesses the quality to make an impact on the international stage.
