Roy Hodgson will reveal England's players for the World Cup on May 12. There have been lots of doubts about the players who could feature the competition, and Manchester United's Tom Cleverley is just one of them.

By many standards and fans opinion, Cleverley is not national quality. However, he was called up for a friendly against Denmark in March and could be a part of the squad in Brazil this summer.

Nevertheless, there are other great Premier League footballers fighting to ensure the place among the national, whom Hodgson should take more note of. 

Jack Rodwell, Jack Cork and Ross Barkley have made certain admirable performances for their clubs this season and are still doing their best in hopes of travelling to Brazil in June, even if time is against them.

Frequent appearances for the Red Devils have led to Hodgson using the 24-year-old as an important part of his team since his debut in August 2012 and  now he has 13 caps.

Things are likely to change, however, after David Moyes' sacking from Old Trafford, and the appointment of Ryan Giggs as interim boss. Moyes was a fan of Cleverley, and he often played the big games.

But United fans don't think he should be in the first-team either, as they think Maroune Fellaini or Michael Carrick are more suitable for the starting eleven.

There is also a big possibility of bringing in new players which would reinforce the team from Old Trafford after an awful season.

Southampton have given four players for the Three Lions, all of them recently making debuts. It turned out pretty good for all of them. So why wouldn't Hodgson take a risk by calling up Jack Cork, a player who has performed consistently well unlike Cleverley? 

Before making sudden conclusions, all of them should be thoroughly scouted. As these midfielders all play in big clubs, there are small differences between them. Which one would you pick?
