Roy Hodgson is a forward thinking manager who has recognised how the game is changing and is working hard to change the mentality of the England team to fit into the new world of football. With high pressing and a real focus on the transition of play between defensive and attacking it is not surprising that the two teams in the Premier League which have most embraced modern continental football are supplying the most players too his squads (Liverpool and the unfashionable Southampton).
With this in mind what will Roy Hodgson's likely squad be for the world cup of 2014? I have taken into account Hodgson's past selection strategies and put together the squad which I believe will be picked by the England manager for Rio.
Please feel free to comment on other players that could be in the mix.
