Enjoying the 2014 World Cup? My England Team Line-up would be…

The World Cup has begun and football has been played everyday, 3 times a day for nearly a week, and it’s been a great.

Surprise surprise England lost their first game, and a huge shock (no sarcasm here) Spain lost. In fact they got absolutely torn apart by a fantastic Dutch side – Thanks to Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie, Spain did not know what to do to prevent them from scoring. Admittedly it could have been a lot worse for Spain, 5 goals conceded was the least they got away with.

Brazil have surprisingly been pretty dull as well as Argentina (even after that Messi screamer). But my favourites Germany looked strong in their first match against Ronaldo, I mean Portugal…

Focusing my attention to England, I believe that Hodgson is failing to use his biggest talents. This England team actually does have a lot of potential, they actually looked decent against Italy but I just feel that Hodgson is too scared of shunning the likes of Rooney out of the team.
I think the England defence is weak and to be honest I’m not sure how I would improve it, although I wouldn’t have called Luke Shaw up to the team and instead called up Kieran Gibbs, I think the other choices were probably justified. The midfield is decent, although my starting line up would consist of starting either Gerrard or Henderson, and partnering the starter with either Wilshere, Lallana or Barkley with Sterling and Ox on the wings supporting front man Sturridge. That’s my opinion anyway…

So if you’re watching the World Cup then feel free to express your opinion on this post and tell me your starting England line up if you were Hodgson.

  1. I don’t think I would change change any of the midfield or forwards. They looked dangerous most of the game and could have easily finished a few more chances. The full backs were useless in the first game, but that’s not to say I don’t agree with the choices. Even though they are old, the John Terry and Ashley Cole pairing might have been a stronger choice at the center back positions.
