England's Euro squad - according to form
If he were picking by the stats, Roy Hodgson would include John Ruddy, Danny Graham and Grant Holt in his first England squad.
The three players are among the best in their positions according to an index compiled by EA Sports using official data from the Premier League.
The quad has been compiled from an index based on key stats for each position but if you disagree you can choose your own squad here.
The Full Squad:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Man City), Ben Foster (West Brom), John Ruddy (Norwich)
Defenders: Danny Simpson (Newcastle), Kyle Walker (Spurs), Leighton Baines (Everton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Joleon Lescott (Man City), John Terry (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Man Utd), Shawcross (Stoke)
Midfielders: Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Matt Jarvis (Wolves), Matthew Etherington (Stoke), Ashley Young (Man Utd), Danny Murphy (Fulham), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Gareth Barry (Man City), Michael Carrick (Man Utd)
Strikers: Wayne Rooney (Man Utd), Danny Wellbeck (Man Utd), Grant Holt (Norwich), Danny Graham (Swansea)
- EA Sport released its index to conincide with the launch of its Euro 2012 Xbox game
Frank Eves: pay attention, eh? It's based on STATS, geddit!? So no prejudice against Liverpool, not a prophecy of what Roy Hodgson will pick, but a squad based on stats.
What is wrong with it is that an England squad for championships MUST have FIVE forwards and SEVEN midfielders, something the idiot Sven didn't know, but which I hope Hodgson does
I know one thing Holty would give 150 % for his country and be proud to wear the shirt ,unlike some of the prima donnas that have turned out for England.
When will we get an England manager that will smell the fresh air and realise that playing the likes of Terry, Lampard, Ferdinand and Gerrard will win us nil zilch absolutely nothing. They have been tried and tested and failed miserable.
For goodness sake get rid and bring in some fresh blood !!!!!!!! makes me sooooo angry
Not a bad squad but I would not have chosen Caroll at any price, and not Jones for Richards a far better right back and in form which Jones is not at the moment. To me Caroll was well over priced at 35 million if he wnet up for sale today Liverpool would not get anything like that for him.
Roy has actually picked a decent squad. Too many people are complaining about picking the same old team. In my opinion Roy has picked a a team which is capable of winning; he's included a good mix of experienced players in the form of J.Terry, F.Lampard and S.Gerrard, but he's also included some less likely figures such as Oxlade Chamberlain and Welbeck, who have both proven to be great players for their club when given the chance, and can be nurtured by the likes of the more experienced players as mentioned above.
well did'nt take long for moaners to start " ME FOR ONE" glad he as picked some new faces,but will they play.I think Roy as may one big mistake.and it's to do with forwards Rooney out for 2 games then who have we got only need a couple of injuries then that's it home early sorry to say why all the defenders should have picked more forwards.
ANY WAY GOOD LUCK they will need it.
