England manager Roy Hodgson will name his Euro 2012 squad on Wednesday and here is the full list of players that we think will be on the plane to Polkraine.
Since Roy Hodgson was appointed as England manager there has been intense speculation over who the new man will be taking to Euro 2012. The squad is set to be revealed on Wednesday afternoon and so we thought take a quick look at the players we expect to be on the plane to Poland and Ukraine and the best odds available on them making the squad
Hart is England's number one and, barring a catastrophic domestic injury he will be between the sticks for the first match against France on June 11.
Green has 11 caps which is more than any of the back-ups and with Ben Foster saying no to a return, the West Ham goalkeeper will be the number two in Polkraine.
Hodgson won't be put off by the fact that Carson, who once cost £10 million, plays for Bursaspor in Turkey and the 26-year-old can expect to be called up ahead of the inexperienced David Stockdale, John Ruddy and Frank Fielding.
First name on the team sheet, after Hart.
Cahill is pretty much England's first choice centre back nowadays. Who'd have thought that when he was slogging at Bolton earlier this season
Made a horrible error against QPR to allow Djibril Cisse to score on the last day of the season but Lescott has been excellent in City's defence all season and is a strong candidate to partner Cahill against France.
His versatility is a massive plus. Sir Alex Ferguson has shown plenty of faith in him this season and Hodgson will take him to Euro 2012.
Ferdinand will probably start for England at Euro 2012. He may not play every match but his experience and calm authority will be needed.
First choice for Tottenham Hotspur and likely to be first choice for England. Reportedly the fastest player in Spurs's squad, which is saying something.
Criminally overlooked by Fabio Capello, Richards could be Hodgson's surprise inclusion in defence. Can play at right back or central defence, which is useful.
A reserve at left back but he's more than that. It would be interesting to see Hodgson experiment with Baines in midfield ahead of Cole on the left wing. His crossing is certainly better than Downing, Young or Walcott's.
Slight concerns over reports of an injury but Parker should still be fit and ready to go at Euro 2012. Unlikely to be captain though.
Will be England's captain at Euro 2012. The big question is where will he play? Has been used in every position in midfield for his country but could be a useful support striker, particularly with Rooney unavailable against France and Ukraine.
There were doubts earlier in the season over Lampard but the Chelsea midfielder has been outstanding in their run to the Champions League final and now looks a likely starter for England.
Parker's injury enhances Barry's claims but there was no way that a central player for the Premier League champions was going to be left out. Under-rated and will be key to any potential success for England this summer.
Hasn't played as much football as he'd have liked over the past few months but versatile and a hard working, which will ingratiate him to Hodgson.
Had an up and down first season at Manchester United but Young has excelled for England in recent matches. One of the few match winners in the squad.
Eight Premier League goals and eight assists are a good return for Walcott this season. He's still only 23 but has plenty of experience and deserves a break at a major tournament.
Will be there by default. Had a poor season but the fact that he's a left footer probably means that he'll be included in the 23.
Banned for the first two matches but will be there for the third. Hopefully there will be more than that.
Had something of a break out season for Manchester United. Still not the most convincing striker in the world but needs must.
Genuinely offers something that no other England striker can. His physical presence and ability to unsettle defenders will mean that he is the plan B this summer.

Another who has gone off the boil in recent weeks but his early season form was good and the fact that he can play on the wing means that he could be a useful addition to the squad.
