Can Verratti, De Gea and Kane break into their national teams' starting XIs?

England head coach Roy Hodgson, and striker Wayne Rooney are confident about Harry Kane's debut in the European qualifier against Lithuania.

The European Championships' expansion to a 24-team tournament has a multitude of effects -- one is that it effectively gives the major countries a free pass. Therefore, managers have more license to experiment and evolve their side with significantly less risk of failure.

Here are five fine talents still attempting to break into their country's first-choice XI -- what chance do they have of overhauling more established names?

1. Marco Verratti, Italy

By this stage, we expected Verratti to be Italy's...

Remembering Rooney, Owen and Shearer on their England debuts

Take a look inside England's training as Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Harry Kane and more test their skills with some great goals and saves.
Could Harry Kane, left, follow in Alan Shearer's footsteps and score a goal on his England senior team debut?

Last week was the best of his whole life, said Tottenham's striker Harry Kane after a Saturday hat trick against Leicester City had followed his first call-up for England's senior squad.

This next week might be even better, should he score against Lithuania on Friday or Italy on March 31. If that happens, then this really could be Harry's game.

Alternatively, Kane might hit the buffers, and find that international football is a step up from the Premier League. Playing for England is a different...

English strikers are back on top form in the 2014-15 Premier League season

Take a look inside England's training as Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Harry Kane and more test their skills with some great goals and saves.
England manager Roy Hodgson has attempted to dampen the hype surrounding Harry Kane, after handing the Tottenham striker his first England call-up.

Harry Kane's rise has been so swift, so startling and so seemingly unstoppable that there seems to be an unofficial competition to make the most outlandish prediction about his prowess and progress. So here is one: The Tottenham striker could prove a once-in-a-millennium player.

Or, to clarify and place in its proper context, Kane stands a fine chance of becoming the first Englishman to claim the Premier League's Golden Boot in a season that started in the 21st century.

Not since Kevin Phillips scored...

Would the FA's new squad rules make any difference? -- 50-50 Challenge

English FA chairman Greg Dyke said the new non-EU player restrictions are not enough and prevent domestic talent the opportunity to play football at the highest level.
The ESPN FC crew react to the comments of English FA Chairman Greg Dyke wanting to restrict foreign players in the Premier League.

The Football Association will push English clubs to unearth their own Harry Kane next season by making it harder for foreign players to secure work permits from this summer.

FA chairman Greg Dyke reported back on the findings of the commission he set up in September 2013 to improve the fortunes of the England team. And further measures were announced such as the increase in the number of places in Premier League squads for homegrown players, and a tightening of who qualifies as such a player.


  • - A change in the definition of Homegrown player to lower qualifying age
  • - A reduction in the maximum number of non-home grown players from 17 to 13
  • - Increase % of English players from 35 to 40
  • - Tightening of work permit rules to ensure only top class players are accepted

Jack Wilshere tries to dance like England teammate Daniel Sturridge

A brief insight into the world of professional football when you're recovering from injury ...

At least Arsenal fans can take heart from the fact Jack Wilshere is in high spirits as he battles to get fit again after suffering an ankle injury last year that has kept him sidelined for months.

Wojciech Szczesny posted a video of Wilshere trying to dance like England teammate Daniel Sturridge, and Sturridge clearly approved, given that he shared it. Although it seems he can't make up his mind over...
