Today we concentrate on the strike force, bringing you a look at Fabio Capello's four goal-scoring options.
Arguably England's only truly world class player, Rooney enters the tournament with the hopes of a nation on his shoulders.
With 25 goals from 60 appearances so far, his goal-scoring exploits will need to continue if the Three Lions are to have any chance of glory in South Africa.
The Tottenham man had a mixed first season at White Hart Lane but did score the goal which secured fourth place for Harry Redkanpp's men.
A huge threat in the air, Crouch has also managed to score 21 goals in just 38 games for his country.
With 40 caps and 11 goals to his name, Defoe is now an experienced striker at international level.
One of the star performers for Spurs last season, the former West Ham player provides a very different option to Crouch and Emile Heskey.
With just eight goals from his 58 caps, Emile has come under heavy criticism from many England fans over past few years.
But despite his poor scoring record, the stats prove that Rooney scores far more goals when he is on the pitch.
