Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ryan Bertrand, Adam Johnson and Danny Welbeck are all in with a chance of representing England in the near future

England manager Roy Hodgson has given his backed Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand, Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Manchester City’s Adam Johnson and Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck to make an impact with the Three Lions.

England face Italy in Bern on August 15 and the former West Brom boss has insisted that he will experiment with younger players ahead of the World Cup qualifying campaign that begins in September.

“Bertrand did very well in the Champions League Final, so there are players out there,” said Hodgson.

“There are players out there, I’ve no doubt about that.

“Jack Wilshere had an impact before he missed the whole of last season with injury. If he can reach that level he’s got to be a player who’s of interest to us.

“Adam Johnson is another who’s quite interesting.

“Then there were talents like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck, who were with us at the Euros.

“They are not poor players technically. Hopefully in two years’ time they will be even better.”
