Rising star Conor Coady has already been promoted into England’s leadership group and is making a big push for the Euros.
Coady has emerged as one of the big winners from the international break, playing well against Wales and Denmark.
But the Wolves defender has also made an impression off the pitch and is already seen as leadership material after just three caps.

Coady is a talker and organiser on the pitch and has jumped ahead of Manchester City misfit John Stones for a starting spot in the centre of the back three.
And Southgate was full of praise for the way Coady and substitute Tyrone Mings held England together against the Danes when Harry Maguire’s red card forced a tactical switch.
Southgate said: “His performance against Denmark and the way him and Tyrone organised the defence from the back really helped to keep us in that game.
