Gearing up for the World Cup

With the world’s biggest sporting event set to start in just over a week, I’m starting to get excited. Although my ancestry is Scottish (both my parents are from Glasgow) I am an avid England fan having being born here and lived here for all of my life.

Although I cannot see England winning the World Cup, I’m hopeful that this new batch of players can do us proud and at least make it to the knockout stage, but with tough games against Italy and Uruguay to contend with it would be an easy task.

Here is the England squad as announced by Roy Hodgson a couple of weeks ago:

Goalkeepers

Joe Hart, Ben Foster, Fraser Forster.

Defenders

Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling.

Midfielders

Ross Barkley, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Raheem Sterling, Jack Wilshere.

Attackers

Rickie Lambert, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Daniel Welbeck.

Here is my starting eleven:
