Dont know it in full but Roys pulled a beauty in not selecting the very much lazy over rated Ashley Young.
Nice one Roy, keep your mits off our Dan though

Out of the 4 strikers only 1 Defoe could be classed as a regular. Carroll is on his bike, Sturridge is in the wilderness and Welbeck will maybe get some time due to Rooneys injury.

Surprised Bent has not been called up as he is back playing regularly.

Not a lot to get excited about....maybe Butland and OXc. We'll qualify Im sure but beyond that I dont see much success any time soon.

You must of missed Englands win against Italy where we were fantastic,
I think Hodgson now knows that 4-5-1 is the way to go.

We were forever saying the same thing on here last season yet Roy persisted to go with his tried and trusted 442. I do, wonder how much of that was due to him not having Wayne Rooney to do the linking up job between the forwards and midfield.

It's pretty much the squad I expected, happy to see very good ball players in Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley involved. Still think we just lack that quality upfront which other nations appear to have. I personally wouldn't have included John Terry. I would hope as a national side we are well past him.

Complaining on Talksportshyte at the moment about Hodgson and 4-4-2. Feel sorry for him. Getting constant derision from wannabes on the radio who say the formation and style would change everything and England would suddenly become world beaters.

I dont think he will play a 442. More likely he will play a 4411 with somebody like Young as a forward. In months to come we might be asking for a 5 man midfield if Wilshere can come back again next to Carrick, Cleverley and maybe an attacking midfielder but at the moment Hodgson needs to do what I thinks is right - it worked against Italy a few weeks ago.

Sure I've read Ashley Cole is injured so Baines will start with Bertrand as cover.

It makes sense now Cole has pulled out, Roy probably already knew he was a doubt. Bertrand is never a winger. I could understand putting him on the left wing if we were playing Spain or somebody to do a job defensively. But against Moldova?

Roy likes to play with four fullbacks, two normal ones and two extra in front of them. He gets a bit anxious if the extra fullbacks cross the half way line too much.

Not sure Young has made the squad has he?

Agree that it seems a bit cautious but maybe Roy will instruct Bertrand to stay up the field in this game for future reference. Bertrand can be quite lively up front, he scored in the Community Shield against City. He could be quite a force for England in the future and the ideal long term replacement for Ashley Cole (no doubt RDMs happy about Bertrands progress too).

Great result for Roy. At least I'll still have someone to support after the US fails to qualify.

Mexico was a "friendly." Lost 2-1 to Jamaica last night in the real thing. The US aren't out of it yet, but they haven't looked very good.

Not going to get carried away, it was a good win, pleased to see Defoe score, defence looked very solid.

Sterling called up after one good game!! Adam Lallana and Jake Livermore have also been called up. I feel sorry for Nathan Dyer

Positive from Roy. We often moan as a nation that the youngsters need to be involved so it's nice to see that he's called up three youngsters who if they keep on the right tracks will probably feature for England regularly at some point. Don't expect them to play but it'll be a great learning curve for them. Although they'll have a taste of international football, just like Martin Kelly at the Euro's, they still need to adapt and improve their games at club level in order to become a consistent England international.
