Who should stay or go in the England squad?

GOALKEEPERS

JOE HART (Age: 29)

Likely to remain No. 1, but could face renewed pressure for his place from Jack Butland.

FRASER FORSTER (28)

Should remain in the frame but a fit-again Butland could push him down the pecking order.

TOM HEATON (30)

Will need to perform well at club level to remain in the picture.

DEFENDERS

RYAN BERTRAND (26)

Chances could be limited by the return of Luke Shaw.

GARY CAHILL (30)

Time has not yet run out and his experience could be important in a position where competition is limited, but John Stones could take over come World Cup 2018.

NATHANIEL CLYNE (25)

Impressed in his sole appearance and is likely to keep pushing Kyle Walker for his spot.

DANNY ROSE (25)

Form for Tottenham earned him his place but could also find himself under pressure if Shaw fulfils his potential.

CHRIS SMALLING (26)

Occasional lapses aside, generally sound and set to continue, possibly in partnership with Stones.

JOHN STONES (22)

His reputation was damaged by Everton's underwhelming season but remains an exciting prospect and some decent club form next term should earn a prolonged run.

KYLE WALKER (26)

With question marks over his defensive work, Clyne will be a serious threat to his prospects of keeping the right-back slot.

MIDFIELDERS

DELE ALLI (20)

Things did not quite work out this time, but his talent is not in doubt and more opportunities will come.

ROSS BARKLEY (22)

Picked on potential rather than form after a disappointing season for Everton, will need to bounce back.

ERIC DIER (22)

Cemented his place as England's holding midfielder and should find a role in the system of any new manager.

JORDAN HENDERSON (26)

Impressed in his one outing but now needs to step up and deliver consistently for Liverpool to keep himself ahead of the competition.

ADAM LALLANA (28)

Looked good in possession but lacked end product and may need to prove his value to a new manager.

JAMES MILNER (30)

Included for his consistency over many seasons but was a peripheral figure and may now slip out of the reckoning.

RAHEEM STERLING (21)

After a £50 million ($90.4m) transfer, expectations of Sterling are now different from 2014 and he failed to meet them - needs to take the blow to confidence and come back firing.

JACK WILSHERE (24)

A selection based on reputation that backfired, Wilshere was not ready for tournament football after an injury-ravaged season. Should not be jettisoned, but needs to get back playing regular football.

STRIKERS

HARRY KANE (22)

Tiredness after a highly impressive season perhaps caught up with him in France, but he remains one of the leading forwards.

MARCUS RASHFORD (18)

Vibrant and highly promising youngster who was underused after coming from nowhere to claim a place in the squad. Still has much to prove but early signs are very good.

WAYNE ROONEY (30)

Did enough in the tournament to dispel the questions over his present status in the team and, although time may be catching up with him, the next World Cup is still within his reach.

DANIEL STURRIDGE (26)

Impressed only in flashes, but was not always played centrally. Needs to play regularly for Liverpool to regain spot as first-choice striker.

JAMIE VARDY (29)

Fully deserved his place in the squad after an outstanding season for Leicester City, but needs to back that up next term.
