England are preparing themselves for yet another summer where they could win something big but in all probability they will disappoint a lot of fans and exit pretty soon form the Euro 2016 tournament.
The national side though does have a lot of new players who are playing out of their skin and could do the damage for the opposition. Jamie Vardy, Ross Barkley and Harry Kane are just some of the stars that should be going to France but here is a list of five players who haven’t really done much this season and should not be part of the England squad.
The 24-year-old Manchester United defender has had a stop-start season due to injuries and well the times he has played for the side; he hasn’t looked the best. United seem to have found a winning combination in Blind and Smalling as the centre-back pairing and this could mean no ticket for Jones.
Roy Hodgson needs players who are in form for the big event and with Smalling leading the line, it could and should be Wes Morgan beside him in France.
It isn’t because Adam Lallana is not a good player but the fact that England have way too many players who could play in his position. Ross Barkley or even Raheem Sterling could do the job that Lallana does, plus he does not have the searing pace to help his side either.
The Liverpool attacker though could make the cut for the final squad if he continues to put in performances like the one against Manchester City, Roy should be careful with his selection though.
It was a surprise seeing Jonjo Shelvey being sold from Swansea to Newcastle United and although he is one of the better players at Newcastle, he isn’t the most consistent and well does not put in a shift defensively.
Shelvey might have one of the best ranges of passing but that is about it for the Englishman, he probably will sneak into the team but who knows, it could be Danny Drinkwater making the short trip to France.
Another midfielder who moved to the right club but hasn’t been able to show his quality or was he ever quality in the first place? Fabian Delph will be regarded as one of those villains for the Villains but he certainly has not been a hero for Manchester City yet.
Injuries and a lack of form has kept the English midfielder out of the squad and this could be a reason why he won’t be boarding a plane to France. England need players who have put in the minutes and that is something which Delph has greatly lacked this season.
He might have scored an important goal for Arsenal against Leicester City but Danny Welbeck is another player who could be missing the trip to France. The 25-year-old Arsenal forward might not fit into the plans for Roy Hodgson especially with the form of Jamie Vardy doing the damage.
Welbeck needs to shift into top gear if he wants to stake a claim for a place in the England team.
