Let's not shrink away from the glaringly obvious matter: It's been a dismal, dire and disappointing World Cup for England, who are now home after their exploits (or lack thereof) in Brazil.
If it wasn't for Luis Suarez's infamous bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, then no doubt the back pages of newspapers would have been a lot more unpleasant for England players when landing in the UK again.
Roy Hodgson will already be stuck away in a dark room plotting for Euro 2016, which England should almost certainly qualify for, given how the tournament has stretched to 24 teams.
Switzerland and England should really be occupying the two automatic spots to reach the finals in 2016, with even the buffer of third place meaning a spot in the play-offs, which England traditionally do well in when backed into that particular corner.
But Hodgson will have much searching to do to find some players who can come in and make an impact following a poor World Cup. And thankfully for Roy, he's got some decent alternatives lingering in the Premier League who weren't in his 23 for this tournament.
