With the winter window closed, we take a look at the potential futures of some of England’s players, with a look into what we can expect out of the side when the time comes.

Edinburgh will not be in the Champions League next season, meaning the only two games in the next five months will be against Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

They will play their home games against Bournemouth and Southampton in the Europa League.

This is not a particularly exciting time for England, as the Champions league is now the most popular competition in Europe, with Barcelona and Real Madrid in second and third places respectively.

However, this is a huge opportunity for a squad that has just lost two of their top-four players, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, in the summer transfer window.

The club’s biggest summer signing is the England international, who will join from Manchester United in a deal worth £49.7m.

The 22-year-old is a player who has already shown a great amount of potential in his first year at Old Trafford, scoring five goals in his debut season at the club.

With the likes of Raheem Sterling, Nacer Chadli, Nacho Monreal, Jack Wilshere and Raheemi Adebayor all on the brink of leaving the club, a replacement for Rooney is going to be a huge question mark.

With so many key players still untested, a new signing could prove vital.

This will be an important game for England at Euro 2016, as they will face Portugal in their opening match in a group that also includes Croatia, Lithuania, Malta and Switzerland.

A win would give them a four-point lead over second-placed Ukraine and will give England a better chance of progressing into the knockout phase of the tournament.

The team will be backed by the likes-minded manager, Roy Hodgson, and his former England captain, Steven Gerrard.

The Reds’ star man is expected to be back for this match after recovering from injury and will be hoping to impress as a replacement to Rooney.

He may not have been the only player that was missing from the squad, with several key players injured during the summer window.

Wayne Rooney will be looking to make up for lost time, while Danny Welcombe is also still recovering from a knee injury.

The striker is expected back in full training soon and will likely start against Portugal.

With a team that has a good chance of finishing in the top three in the European competitions, the expectation is that England will be a threat to beat Portugal in the group stages.

The team will have a strong chance of winning this match, with both teams having struggled to score goals this season.

It will be tough for England to break through to the quarter-finals, as both teams will be well stocked with quality players.

It is a game of physicality and it is going for the jugular.
