As briefly alluded to earlier, Tom Cleverley had a less than impressive game at the head of England's attacking midfield.
Sure, he was tidy in possession in spells and made forward runs, both prerequisites for playing that role, but that's hardly worthy of huge amounts of praise.
All too often in his short time in English colours—he now has seven caps—Cleverley misses more than presentable chances to score goals. He similarly passed up an opportunity in the first half against Sweden.
After a less than auspicious second-half showing he was replaced by the returning Jack Wilshere.
The Gunner has been out for a long time with injury but has more about his technical side of the game than his Manchester United rival. Neither have yet shown themselves to be great goalscorers and need to work on this, but Wilshere is certainly the more creative and quick-witted—at his peak, that is.
It remains to be seen how quickly he returns to that level.
Jonjo Shelvey got a run at the role recently.
Adam Lallana will hope for another callup and a chance to play there.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also capable of filling that position.
Not to mention a certain Frank Lampard, should he return to add to his 93 caps.
All in all, the attacking midfield role is still very much up for grabs. However, don't be surprised to see all six of these players shunted aside to make way for Wayne Rooney, when available, if Welbeck continues to impress up front.
