Who Will Make It Big In 2014?

England are not suddenly going to become 'world beaters' in 2014, and although the mass hysteria around the media as the world cup gets closer will be that England are going to win the world cup and then we are beaten down when we do not manage this, I think next year could see an improvement for the Three Lions.

I actually think this improvement will come in the latter stages of it mind!

As the summer ends and we move into the autumn and Euro 2016 qualification begins I could see some new faces come in to invigorate the England set-up.

There are some really talented youngsters coming through, if they can start coming into the senior set-up with the experience of some time at U21 level - perhaps even dipping back into that from time to time as well - they can help transform England.

I think the likes of Ross Barkley, Raheem Sterling, Wilfried Zaha, Ravel Morrison and Nathan Redmond that have already been signalled out by Roy Hodgson are likely to become regulars among the squad and will offer us an exciting blend of attacking talent with plenty of ability.

They will frighten defenders, and best of all they have plenty of ability and pace, pace can make such a difference.

Others are coming through too mind, so these aside, are there any other players that any of us have high hopes for in 2014 and beyond?

I can see Barkley keeping his place and potentially Sterling, as he has all the quality and has already made the squad/team on a few occasions. As for the rest, I can see them having to bide their time until after the WC, as I think and hope that Roy, looks at the established players and looks to gel them into a cohesive unit, as opposed to looking to bring in new faces at this late stage. If I was looking for an outside bet, I would opt for Tom Huddlestone or perhaps John terry, he can rebuild relationships
Certainly not Zaha, if he cannot get into an average Man U, team then he is not good enough to play for England, just yet
