Finally, it’s around that time wherein the adrenalin rush in every soccer lover rises. There is that tinge of excitement in the air in which zillions of football lovers all across the world would be standing face to face with hopes, dreams, tears, joy and prayers. Yes, its time for the FIFA World. It is time for noise to soar in the stadiums with enthusiasts cheering and hooting for their teams.
So what would Team England look like? What are their strategies? Would the English team create history? Well, while we wait a little longer to get the answers to the questions, lets take a sneak-peak into what’s happening
The English Manager- Mr.Roy Hodgson would try every trick in his kitty in the next five months or so to plan and strategize the English Team’s 2014 World Cup Outing. 2nd June is when the 23 men squad will be announced for the mega event. Hodgson will be naming his provisional 30 men squad on 13th May. He is carefully scanning through every player that he could possibly include in his team and hence, he along with coaches Ray Lewington & Gary Neville is missing no matches in the Premier League.
Here is England’s predicted team for the World Cup; Joe Hart (Goalkeeper), Glen Johnson (Full Back), Kyle Walker (Full Back), Leighton Baines (Full Back), Ashley Cole (Full Back), Phil Jagielka (Centre Back), Gary Cahill (Centre Back), Steven Gerrard (Midfield), Jack Wilshere (Midfield), James Milner (Wide), Wayne Rooney (Striker), Daniel Sturridge (Striker), Danny Welbeck (Striker), Frank Lampard (Midfielder) according to publications.
The team would be banking heavily on experienced campaigners Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerard and Frank Lampard. Joe Hart has to join the party as well in securing the posts and give their best shot when it counts the most. Phil Jones’ versatility of being able to play in multiple positions would surely be used well by the Manager.
England has to play in a very competitive group, which also spots mega teams like Italy, Uruguay, Costa Rica. The Englishmen might also counter challenges in adjusting to the weather conditions of the Amazon forest, which is very different from the English weather conditions. Overall, though some pundits predict the English team might find it difficult to get to the second level of the tournament, as there would be steep resistance, we can still expect some adrenalin rush in their games.
The odds on England are 12/1 to win the 2016 Euro Cup. We currently don’t have updated World Cup odds, but if you want to bet on England to win the World Cup, you’ll have plenty of chances to do so over the next couple of months. Cheers!
