England - Fighting for a place in Brazil

Off the back of my last England team post, here is an updated list of the could go list. The friendly tonight against Denmark will give some of these players a chance but who could make a late run for the 30 man squad and then the 23 man squad who go to Brazil.  

Could Go

Andy Carroll
Now back from injury if he needs games and needs to get back on the score sheet to shift Lambert out.

Fabian Delph 

Under the radar at the unfashionable Aston Villa but a young player who has had a decent season. A strong finish could do him the world of good.

Mark Noble 
If you look at the last England captain to take his country to a competitive final, he's your man. He does pass the ball well but what is more crucial he can take a penalty.

Adam Johnson
Up and down with form, he can play on either wing and find the net,  he is a confidence player, so Sunderland struggling in the league may put his chances down though.

Luke Shaw
One for the future but with it being Cole's last major tournament is he worth the risk taking for experience? 

Jay Rodriguez
Gone off the boil in recent weeks but could easily go on a scoring run and steal a place.

Raheem Sterling
I thought his form may slide but he seems to be getting better and better. Playing with Gerrard and Sturridge weekly gives him an advantage for the link up play. He could be a very good sub to come on in Brazil. 

Jordan Henderson
Not the most exciting of players but when you look at the job Milner does and what he will do if he goes, Henderson is another option just in case of injury and he is having a far better season than Tom Cleverley.
