Roy Hodgson’s England side face a tough international Friendly fixture against Sweden next week, and the Three Lions will be looking to continue their good start  to the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The critics were divided over Hodgson’s England at Euro 2012, some praised their achievements of reaching the quarter finals despite possessing their weakest squad in years, while others criticised the negative style of play that saw them dominated by other teams.

This time around, there are no surprise call-ups and the squad looks strong on paper which cannot be said for previous efforts. For such a strong footballing nation, England have capped some  players that were simply not up to international standard, and in recognition of those who should never have pulled on the white shirt, or perhaps have been called up too soon, I’ve thrown together 20 players that will make you wonder what the England manager was thinking.
