World Cup 2014: England squad numbers announced - Jack Wilshere takes No 7
While the vice-captain Frank Lampard will wear No 8
Jack Wilshere will hope to emulate David Beckham, Bryan Robson and Kevin Keegan at next month's World Cup after he was handed the prestigious No 7 shirt for the tournament.
Wilshere has endured an injury-hit season for Arsenal, but his squad number for Brazil suggests the midfielder could be in line to start England's opener against Italy on 14 June.
Frank Lampard, the vice-captain, also looks to be in the first-team reckoning as he has been given the No 8 shirt.
Danny Welbeck will wear 11 despite his poor season at Manchester United.
Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana have been widely tipped to sneak ahead of Welbeck into the first team, but they have been given 19 and 20 respectively. Lallana wears the same number for his club team Southampton.
Leighton Baines looks to be Hodgson's first-choice left-back. He will wear 3 in South America while his main rival Luke Shaw has been handed 23.
