QPR boss Harry Redknapp was one of the main candidates for the England job before Roy Hodgson was appointed, and apparently old ‘Arry was quite upset at the snub. We couldn’t help but wonder how the England team would look if the wheeler-dealer got his hands on the squad, and made a Redknapp England XI based on his selection tendencies.

Goalkeeper

No surprises here as Harry keeps his unrelenting faith in Rob Green, and he won’t have a bad word said about the lad either.

Defence

A no-nonsense, experienced defensive four here. Glen Johnson played under Redknapp and Portsmouth and is the only player who is in both ‘Arry’s World Cup XI and England’s actual World Cup 2014 XI. Rio Ferdinand and John Terry are called out of retirement to struggle with the pace of any attack that has even a slight bit of pace. The left back selection is a strange one, as Benoit Assou-Ekotto is from Cameroon, but Harry has had the afro-man in so many of his teams that he will find a way to fit him in.

Midfield

A no-nonsense midfield here, are you starting to notice a trend? Parker and Lampard to sit in the middle and provide the ball to Joe Cole who also comes out of retirement to play for Harry. Andros Townsend is a rare young player in the team, but thats only because he is one of the best players in the world.

Attack

Little and large, the perfect strike partnership. Big Pete Crouch and Jermaine Defoe have got Harry the goals at Portsmouth and Spurs, and now England. This wonderful bromance is given a chance to flourish yet again in Brazil.
