To qualify for the tournament, players must be born after January 1st 1993 but three extra players are permitted for selection.

Here’s the best team available based on their season ratings out of 10, according to statisticians WhoScored:

GK: Robert Green (West Ham) – 6.77

Robert Green QPR

With not many goalkeepers in England eligible, Jak Alnwick of Newcastle is the only Premier League man who would qualify automatically, though his stand-in performances have hardly been the best.

Robert Green beats Joe Hart with his performances for relegation threatened QPR.
