1)I would bring Owen back (despite his starts as a sub at Stoke) and play him and Rooney up front in a 4-4-2 formation. Danny Welback is slow as a snail and a Owen/Rooney combination would be lethal. I can't remember many times when Owen didn't perform in an England shirt.

2)I would have a long meeting with John Terry and Rio Ferdinand (and may be Ashley Cole) and bring both of them back in defense.

3)I would put Aaron Lennon and Theo Walcott on two different wings. I would pinpoint some of Lennon's failures at WC'2010 (such as his need to shoot at goal when he is that close instead of looking to pass to someone else). No team in the world has two players with that much pace.
