Can Liverpools season pave the way for a bright world cup for England?
Now I'm not saying that England will win the world cup or anything like that, but as much as I hate to say it, Liverpool have been a breath of fresh air this season, great to watch, whether they win the title or not, and they have done it with a good number of English players... I can only see this as a positive for England.
I very much doubt that this is the way Hodgson will go, but I wouldn't mind seeing England playing with the formation Liverpool have used this season with Johnson and Baines in the full back positions, gerrard supporting Henderson and Wilshire and Sterling playing through the middle like he has been, with Rooney and Sturridge up front (though he is no Suarez, Rooney has been one of the few bright sparks in Uniteds season). I'd also like to see Terry come out of retirement and partner Cahill in central defence, I think having a partnership that plays together pretty much every week at club level could really help. Obviously Hart in net.
Saying this, I'll expect something like... Hart, Johnson, Jagielka, Cahill, Cole - Gerrard, Wilshire, Cleverley - Sturridge, Rooney, Milner.
