<b>13. Manu Tuilagi (England)</b><br/>
Tuilagi can make a massive impact on every game he plays. He could do nothing all game and then change the outcome within a couple of phases. He does this better than anyone in not only the England squad but anyone in the competition.

<b>Roy Hodgson</b><br/>
Five months younger than Redknapp, another elder statesman enjoying managerial success.

FA deny Fabio Capello was paid £1.5m in compensation

The Football Association have rejected claims they paid £1.5million in compensation to Fabio Capello following the Italian's resignation as England coach.

<b>Harry Redknapp</b><br/>
The 64-year-old has been favoured since Capello announced his intention to step down after Euro 2012. The Tottenham manager's chances grew after yesterday's verdict of not guilty in his tax evasion trial. Managerial career has been built on his ability to get the best out of his players – something England have struggled with. Led Portsmouth to the 2008 FA Cup and Spurs to the Champions League quarter-finals last year.

<b>EURO 2012</b><br/>
England are once again in turmoil after Capello's decision to resign last night. The Italian felt his position had become untenable after the FA stripped John Terry of the captaincy without consulting him. Terry has been accused of racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand, a charge which he denies, and will stand trial on July 9. The FA elected to act as the Chelsea defender's trial does not start until after the Euro 2012 finals.
