Well to be honest in the last 10 years the "golden generation" was their problem. None of the multiple coaches managed to actually get them to play together well as a team. Lampard, Gerrard, Beckham and Scholes were/are all amazing players but especially Lampard and Gerrard never played well together (outside that one sad night in Munich). Same goes for Terry, Ferdinand and Campbell all fantastic central defenders but they also never complimented each other well. In addition goalie position filled with below average goalies. No coach till now managed that situation. It is not about fielding the 11 best players but the best team
Might actually be a blessing for England to not have this problem this time. To leave Rio at home is a bold decision, but if you in my eyes correctly want to break up the not working partnership in central defense it was a decision that needed to be made. The Lampard Gerrard issue resolved itself.
If it does not work out the Hogdson will have massive problems.
It is time to install a suitable playingstile and build a team.
