Now England's World Cup is over, attention is switching to the Three Lions qualifying for Euro 2016.
They kick-start their campaign against Switzerland in September, with their other rivals including Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino.
Roy Hodgson's main concern will be how he continues to evolve his team. Will the England manager be ruthless in saying goodbye to the old guard, or will he still lean on the likes of Steven Gerrard to help England on their road to France?
The key will be to select a team with the bigger picture in mind. Come the tournament in 2016, for instance, Gerrard will be 36 and unlikely to be a regular starter, so Hodgson will need to build a squad capable of competing should England qualify.
With that in mind, Bleacher Report highlights five Englishman who should be drafted into England's Euro 2016 qualifying squad.
