Gareth Southgate will keep his players on their toes by holding off naming a new permanent England captain.
The role is up for grabs after Wayne Rooney announced his retirement from international football on Wednesday.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane is in pole position to succeed Rooney after being handed the armband for England’s last two games against Scotland and France.
In Southgate’s latest squad Gary Cahill and Jordan Henderson, who captain their clubs, would also be among the contenders.
Southgate said: “I think we have been developing other leaders. That’s important.
“Maybe even more important is what’s happened with Wayne’s announcement is we don’t rush into something and putting pressure on another individual.
“It’s important we spread the responsibility throughout the team. I don’t feel the need to rush that.
“Others are having to take responsibility and we don’t want people to think they are a captain and guaranteed a place in the team because people have to play well to stay in the team.”
