That's the worst England squad ever assembled.
i thought avengers assembled nowadays.
that list of names doesn't exactly whet the appetite. ashley young defying the age barrier, it is ashley young isn't it and it's not me losing it? henderson and livermore are two of the most pedestrian uninspiring selections ever, surely it'd have been worth having wilshere in instead of livermore? at least he could create something during the coming 0-0 at 80 minutes snore fest qualifier if we need it.
i always remember listening to roy hodgson, after managing sweden (?) but before england, saying if he had his time again he wold have opted for more 'good characters' when filling the squad because they have a positive influence on morale, which just makes the inclusion of livermore and young all the more perplexing.
anyhow this may not be the official squad, so...
