The future of the England national team looks extremely bright right now.

On the back of reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia, Gareth Southgate’s young Three Lions are now in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals where they will face the Netherlands after overcoming both Croatia and Spain in their group.

When you consider some of the exciting young talent coming through the ranks, you feel that this is just the start of the new era.

Youngsters Marcus Rashford, John Stones and Raheem Sterling are already regulars in the senior squad and look set to stay there for the next decade or so.

Meanwhile, the likes of Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden both look set to become world-class footballers.

But what will England’s squad look like in 10 years time?

It’s almost impossible to predict but YouTuber Enda Story has attempted to work it out using Football Manager 2019.
