Responding to a 90min poll asking which of the current England crop it's possible to imagine leading the national team one day, more than 40,000 fans chose one clear winner:
Captain, all-time record goalscorer and potentially even all-time record cap holder in the relatively near future, Wayne Rooney was the choice for 40% of those who voted.
Rooney has matured significantly since his early playing days as a hot-headed teenager and has been credited with giving a number or rousing speeches since being handed the captain's armband for both club and country in 2014.
He will have a level of experience to share and draw from that could be rivalled by few others should he ever choose to make the transition into coaching.
Current vice-captain Jordan Henderson was the choice for 21% of those who voted. The Liverpool man has shown a new level of assuredness this season that could perhaps indicate he might have potential as a coach after retirement.
Everton captain and an England player since 2008, Phil Jagielka is nearing an age when he might have to call time on his playing career, and 15% could see him managing his country in the future. Fellow centre-back Gary Cahill was backed by 12% of fans in the poll.
Joe Hart is generally a popular individual with supporters, but just 9% think he has what it takes to be England manager, while Tottenham's Eric Dier, a future captain in the eyes of many, was chosen by just 3% to be future boss.
