3 Players to Look out for – England

08 Jun

With the recent spurn of injuries, and controversies as well, England will have to rely on a relatively young squad, this time at the Euro’s.

Phil Jones, 20, Manchester United (England), Defender, 5 international caps

Phil Jones started his career with Blackburn Rovers, and quickly proved himself to be a quality centre-back. His commitment and desire was for everyone to see, and he moved to Manchester United for £16.5 million, after just 40 appearances for Blackburn. At United, he has become a utility player, able to play at right-back or in the centre of defence, as well as in midfield. He has been tipped by his manager, Alex Ferguson, to be a future England captain.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 18, Arsenal (England), Midfielder, 2 international caps

In one Championship season with Southampton, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain proved that he was well on course to being a world class talent. His maturity was well beyond his age. He scored 10 goals and assisted 8 in his first full season with the Saints. He drew interest from all major English clubs, but Arsenal won his signature, for £12 million. At Arsenal, he has quickly adapted, and is one of the brightest talents in the league. His dribbling ability, pace, and power has helped him be a surprise inclusion in the England squad.

Danny Welbeck, 21, Manchester United (England), Striker, 5 international caps

Loan spells at Preston in 2009/10 and Southampton in 2010/11 helped Danny Welbeck into a major goalscoring threat for Manchester United. His transformation from a curious young lad to Premier League striker was keenly under the eyes of Alex Ferguson, who thrust him into the first team last season. Welbeck responded well with 12 goals.
