My top TEN England players available to Hodgson for selection

HodgsonEngland face two crucial qualifiers in the coming week if they want to keep their hopes of qualification for the 2014 World Cup alive.

The home game against Moldova is of course a must win, but it is the game against Ukraine that could prove to be the pivotal moment.

Ukraine face a easy game against whipping boys San Marino and should win the game comfortably.

If England can get a win in what will be a tough match in Kiev then they can pull ahead and all but guarantee second place and a play-off spot.

And with two home games still to come after this week’s matches, one with current leaders Montenegro there could be a real chance of Hodgson’s men topping the group.

However, as usual things have been less than simple with the English national side.

This week has seen many vital players pull out of the squad and leaves Hodgson to rely on a core of players to make the impact in these two games.

These players have the talent, but will have to produce their best to put England into contention with a qualification place going into the last round of qualifiers.

Clink on the links below to see which TEN players I believe to be the best available to England boss for these vital qualifiers.
