At 2, Rooney will take a leadership role to guide the younger players on England
The only player on this list guaranteed to start every game for England (barring injury or suspension) is Wayne Rooney.
He is once again a goal-scoring machine for club and country.
Rooney has scored a goal apiece in his last two games vs. Montenegro and Poland, and also has three goals in EPL play thus far.
Aside from his strong attacking play, Rooney will bring valuable leadership to the squad, now at the age of 27.
With the 22-year-old Andros Townsend and Danny Welbeck beside him, as well as the 24-year-old Daniel Sturridge, with only five appearances for England, Rooney will need to set the example for other players and be a voice on the field.
Arguably England's best player, Rooney's experience only increases his immense value to the Three Lions.
