England Euro 2012 - Players To Watch

Social Sharing: 

Young and WelbeckHe was England's joint top marksman during qualifying for Euro 2012 and it's fair to say Ashley Young will be one to watch in the tournament this summer. Young was called up to the England senior squad in 2007 by manager Steve McClaren and faced Russia and Israel in Euro 2008 qualifiers. He was also part of Fabio Capello's starting 11 for a 2010 World Cup qualifier in 2009 against Holland but failed to make the cut for the 30-man squad for the tournament the following year. Young scored his first international goal against Denmark in a friendly in 2011, which was the winning goal of the match. (Young 50/1 in Euro 2012 Betting to be top goal scorer).

Young has adapted well to top-flight football with an impressive 2011-12 season at domestic club Manchester United. Since scoring his first international goal he became a regular for the England team with his 3 goals playing an important part in England's successful qualification for this summer's tournament.

Young's Old Trafford team-mate Danny Welbeck was tipped by many a pundit to break into the England squad following a promising season at Manchester United, and sure enough England manager Roy Hodgson named the 21-year-old in his team list. Welbeck , whose movement on the pitch has been described as quick footed and good in the air, has played for England youth teams and was an under-21 star, before being called up to the senior squad in 2011. (Welbeck 28/1 in Euro 2012 Betting to be top goal scorer).

Steven GerrardOne of the so called ‘Golden Generation' Steven Gerrard is probably England's star man and will captain the squad during the Euro 2012 tournament. He is a well established football player, and has spent more than 10 years as one of the world's best midfielders, but with his performance starting to fade, at least at international level; will he be able to help improve his side's underachievement at the 2010 World Cup?
