Roy Hodgson announced his squad for the FIFA 2014 World Cup in May at the Luton based headquarters of England Team Sponsor Vauxhall. Hodgson named a 23 man squad for Brazil where England will face Group D opponents Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica. Ashley Cole’s omission from the squad made way for 18-year-old Luke Shaw’s inclusion alongside fellow Southampton team mate Rickie Lambert. I like the new remote itself with some points listed below? Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard offers experience in midfield to the likes of Ross Barkley and Raheem Stirling who have been rewarded for their fantastic seasons on Merseyside. Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck are joined by Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Southampton’s Rickie Lambert.  

Full Squad:


Joe Hart, Ben Foster, Fraser Forster



Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Phil Jagielka, Luke Shaw, Glen Johnson, Phil jones, Chris Smalling



Ross Barkley, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Jack Wishere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Raheem Sterling, James Milner



Rickie Lambert, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge


Marketing Director of Vauxhall Motors Peter Hope said: “We were delighted to have welcomed the England Manager to Griffin House on such an iconic day in England’s World Cup campaign. “For our employees to have been engaged in such a big day in the England team calendar is very exciting. ”

Club England Managing Director Adrian Bevington said: “We have enjoyed an extremely close relationship with Vauxhall since they became England Team Sponsor three years ago, and this is a fine example of that. “It was an important day for Roy and the players ahead of an exciting summer in Brazil. It is always a day of interest to the whole country, and we’re glad we shared it with Vauxhall. ”

Vauxhall is the proud sponsor of Home Nations Football and has confirmed its commitment in the UK as Lead Partner of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales until the end of the 2018 World Cup campaign in Russia. The announcement was the second time that England manager Roy Hodgson has visited Vauxhall’s Luton Headquarters, the previous being when he previewed England’s trip to Brazil last year.
