Aston Villa skipper Gareth Barry has tipped Ashley Young and Gabriel Agbonlahor to get a chance in England's next friendly, this weekend in Trinidad.
Neither winger Young nor striker Agbonlahor featured in manager Fabio Capello's side which beat the USA 2-0 at Wembley on Wednesday night while Barry himself had to content himself with only entering the proceedings after 57 minutes.
But Barry believes his team-mates will get their chance - particularly after their Italian coach announced that eight of the players who featured in last week's gruelling Champions League Final in Moscow had been given a reprieve and would not fly out to Port of Spain last night with the team for Sunday's friendly with Trinidad and Tobago.
Barry, who set up Steven Gerrard for England's second goal with his first touch of the ball, said: "I think the manager has his own ideas and, while I got to play, there are two other lads in Gabby and Ashley who didn't. But I am sure with the Trinidad game coming up the manager will want to try things out and hopefully they will get on then and get some minutes under their belt "The fact they didn't play at Wembley is down to the manager but he will try some new things next game and hopefully the two lads can get on."
Wednesday's match saw Barry achieve his 19th cap. Young has so far been capped twice now by his country at senior level whilst Agbonlahor - still an ever present in Stuart Pearce's England Under 21s, is still awaiting his first senior cap.
Barry, meanwhile, has revealed it would be a dream come true if he were to be awarded the captain's armband out in Port of Spain.
Capello has been rotating the honour of skipper and has suggested he will pass the band on to one more incumbent before deciding upon a permanent England skipper ahead of the World Cup qualifiers later in the year.
With Barry the only club skipper and England regular not yet bestowed with the honour, speculation is rife that he will now get that chance this weekend.
Barry said: "It is everyone's dream to captain their country and it is certainly mine but nothing has been mentioned to me apart from a few phone calls and hints from the press.
"I had four or five years in the wilderness and have now featured in every game this season and that is a good turn-around and now I am happy with my International form."
Meanwhile talented Villa Academy defender Eric Lund looks set to return to his native Sweden after being given the chance to join up with Gothenburg.
It is understood Villa had been considering offering the 19-year-old youngster a two-year-deal but the Swede is contemplating a move back home to be close to his family.
