Picking an England Team for the Opening Game of Euro 2016 Qualification

England's World Cup campaign may have been desperately disappointing, but there's little time for the squad and staff to dwell on their failures. Their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign starts away to Switzerland in September and improvements are clearly needed.

Their first group stage exit from a World Cup since 1958 saw them take just one point from what was a fairly winnable group. Indeed, Costa Rica—a side without a single world-class player—topped the group with seven points.

Manager Roy Hodgson's positivity after the final game was baffling (via Sky Sports), and picking the next England XI may not be his responsibility, despite Greg Dyke's recent vote of confidence (via John Cross at the Mirror).

Here's a possible XI for whoever is in charge to consider when the Switzerland game comes around. Feel free to use the comment section underneath to suggest your own.
