Cover for Gerrard?
Been reading an article about Scholes's latest opinions on Sky Sports and I think he made an interesting point. He has the same idea that England should focus on the way Liverpool have been playing, but that England haven't taken a player that can play that deep lying play maker/defensive midfielder role that Gerrard plays, in the case of an injury or lack of fitness.
Now I've been saying all season that Michael Carrick shouldn't go because he hasn't been good enough, but Scholes made a point that he's possibly the best back up that can play that role despite possibly not deserving to go, other options could be Huddlestone (who has the passing range too but perhaps not the energy for the heat in Brazil), or Barry who I'm not sure has the passing range but I think has had a better season as the other 2. I think of the current squad Milner is best equipped for the role.
Other than that a Gerrard injury would force a change in tactics.
Does anyone agree, disagree? Have their own views?
