Home to the most popular league in the world (apologies to Spain, Italy, and Germany), the English Premier League is one of the most watched sports in the world. That said, many eyes will be on the consistently overrated and underachieving English national team. With all of the big names on the roster, people usually expect the English team to advance farther than it should. Considering all of the success that its individual players have had on the club level, it's surprising to many that the national team hasn't matched that success. That said, there are many stars on the English team that many will want to see in action during the World Cup. With old warhorses like Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney, and Frank Lampard, and a slew of up-and-comers like Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Luke Shaw, and Adam Lallana, this is one of the most interesting English teams in years. How it will translate on the pitch remains to be seen.
So, who is the top player to watch on the English national team this year? That remains to be seen, but depending on his performance in Brazil, it's safe to say that whoever becomes this year's English star will see his profile grow.It's up to you to vote on and decide who are the top players to watch on the English national team. Soccer is England's top sport, so it should come as no surprise that there's a lot focus on them. Upvote the player who you think should be at the top of this most watched list.
