This England squad has been chosen using computerized data measuring a player’s all-round contribution to the success of his team in the Premier League this season.
THE Man City keeper has been a key part of Roberto Mancini’s title charge.
Commanding in the air, Hart is a great shot stopper who will only get better.
SAVES 143, CONCEDED 29, SAVES PER GOAL 5, CLEAN SHEETS 17
DOES not want to be picked, retiring from internationals last year. But if anyone can persuade the West Brom keeper to return, it is ex-Baggies boss Hodgson.
SAVES 200, CONCEDED 49, SAVES PER GOAL 4, CLEAN SHEETS 10
NORWICH No 1 had an excellent debut Prem season and was not fazed by facing the big boys.
Made most saves of the three but let in the most goals.
SAVES 216, CONCEDED 65, SAVES PER GOAL 3, CLEAN SHEETS 3
BRILLIANT season for Spurs. Has improved massively under Harry Redknapp.
All-action, can produce stunning free-kicks and tough tackles.
TACKLES WON 74%, CLEARANCES 32, DISTANCE RUN 195 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 99
RIGHT-BACK had a solid season as part of a strong Newcastle defence.
Likes to get forward but does not shirk defensive duties. A rookie at this level though.
TACKLES WON 79%, CLEARANCES 43, DISTANCE RUN 194 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 102
THE Chelsea ace is one of the best left-backs in the world.
Been there, seen it and done it. One of the first names on the teamsheet thanks to his experience and quality.
TACKLES WON 76%, CLEARANCES 12, DISTANCE RUN 188 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 110
GREAT season for Man City, clearly benefited from playing alongside Vincent Kompany.
Strong in the air and on the ground but he does not have much experience on this stage.
TACKLES WON 78%, CLEARANCES 36, DISTANCE RUN 153 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 94
WILL play second fiddle to Cole but the Everton man’s dead-ball skills give him something different.
Provides good supply from the left.
TACKLES WON 72%, CLEARANCES 9, DISTANCE RUN 185 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 107
ENDURED a shaky end to Chelsea’s season but remains one of England’s best defenders.
Even surrounded by controversy, JT is still a strong leader.
TACKLES WON 83%, CLEARANCES 50, DISTANCE RUN 165 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 97
AGE is catching up with one of England’s best-ever defenders.
The pace which set the Manchester United man apart may have gone but he remains a class act with huge experience.
TACKLES WON 100%, CLEARANCES 46, DISTANCE RUN 131 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 85
NEVER played for England but looks to have the qualities to do well for the Three Lions.
Has shone for Stoke and would not be scared of stepping up.
TACKLES WON 80%, CLEARANCES 44, DISTANCE RUN 187 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 97
HAS performed well for Stoke over the last couple of years and would give Hodgson the option of a real winger. Never played for England — would be a risk.
SHOTS/TARGET 71%, PASSES 312, DISTANCE RUN 148 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 105
WINGER was one of the only bright spots of Wolves’ season as the Molineux club were relegated.
Hit eight goals and showed he has the ability to add to his one England cap.
SHOTS/TARGET 61%, PASSES 541, DISTANCE RUN 184 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 108
KIND of attacking midfielder England need to unlock the top sides.
Man United star delivers deadly free-kicks and crosses while also weighing in with goals.
SHOTS/TARGET 73%, PASSES 423, DISTANCE RUN 105 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 110
GETTING back to his best after being left out under Andre Villas-Boas at Chelsea.
Provides experience for the Three Lions and the know-how of dealing with tournament football.
SHOTS/TARGET 72%, PASSES 696, DISTANCE RUN 164 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 119
ANOTHER player who Hodgson knows well after their time together at Fulham. Great on the ball and can whip in fantastic free-kicks. Time not on his side though.
SHOTS/TARGET 76%, PASSES 743, DISTANCE RUN 183 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 112
ONE of the unsung heroes of Man City’s season.
A key man for holding the midfield together while others push on. Consistently produces without any dramas.
SHOTS/TARGET 64%, PASSES 917, DISTANCE RUN 207 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 126
KEEPS Man United ticking.
Carrick is excellent in possession and has a fantastic engine, enabling him to put in shifts at the back as well as getting forward.
SHOTS/TARGET 60%, PASSES 1,026, DISTANCE RUN 174 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 114
BANNED for the first two games but the Man United ace is still our best player and best hope of winning the Euros.
Always a threat with his goals but likes to drop deep.
SHOTS/TARGET 66%, SHOTS PER GOAL 5, DISTANCE RUN 198 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 116
REALLY improved in his first full season with Man United after loan spell at Sunderland.
Big, strong and able to lead the line. Great finisher and poses problems.
SHOTS/TARGET 73%, SHOTS PER GOAL 8, DISTANCE RUN 126 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 104
BIG hitman scored 15 league goals for Norwich and would give Hodgson a real targetman.
Strong as an ox and powerful in the air but lack of experience a concern.
SHOTS/TARGET 61%, SHOTS PER GOAL 5, DISTANCE RUN 142 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 103
DONE hard yards at Carlisle and Watford before finally hitting the big-time this term.
Scored 10 goals for Swansea City but is unproven at international level.
SHOTS/TARGET 61%, SHOTS PER GOAL 6, DISTANCE RUN 162 MILES, YARDS PER MIN 95
