With the summer squad finally released (albeit with three names to be excluded by the start of the competition), lots of talk has inevitably centred around England’s attacking third, especially with the inclusion of Manchester United’s former talisman, now passenger Wayne Rooney.
Given the youth of the side, you can understand why Hodgson selected Rooney for the tournament that marks the midway point to 2018’s FIFA World Cup finals. However, the Spurs contingent of the side has been in such good form that it will be nigh impossible for the scouser to displace Dele Alli and/or Harry Kane in the starting team.
First things first, let’s look up front. Statistics don’t need to tell us that Harry Kane is the best striking option for England up front, even when you take into consideration Jamie Vardy’s stellar year.
With 27 goals in 41 starts, Kane has grown significantly into the role of England’s main assassin after biding his time as apprentice and will be instrumental if England is going to go anywhere near challenging for the competition.
As for Delli Alli, his arrival at White Hart Lane was the tonic for a league challenge and his combination with Kane will only strengthen England’s charge. They know each other’s game and they’re both extremely dynamic in their own right with Alli scoring 10 goals and making 11 assists in just his first year in the Premier League.
Compare that with Rooney’s tally 11 goals and 5 assists across all games in the 2015/2016 season and it’s a no-brainer.
