England qualified for Euro 2024 with a 3-1 victory over Italy in October and will be looking to top Group C tonight, as the Three Lions face North Macedonia.

An idea inspired by a photoshopped image of David Beckham, predicting what the England legend would look like at 50-years of age. Using AI software Midjourney, Betting Sites had a look at what could be in store for the current squad!

Marcus Rashford

Rashford AI

The Manchester United star has struggled to find form this season, scoring just one goal in the Premier League.

However, the 26-year-old was on target in England’s 3-1 win over Italy, scoring a sublime goal and showing signs of the player that contributed to 30 goals last season.

This AI image has certainly been kind to Rashford, but has the expression of a man that finished his career in this current Manchester United side!

Bukayo Saka

Saka AI

Arsenal have transitioned into one of the finest teams in England over recent years and Bukayo Saka has played a huge part in this resurgence.

Contributing to eight goals in the Premier League already, Saka has cemented his place on Arsenal’s right hand-side – while also maintaining a place in Gareth Soutghate’s squad.

The 22-year-old is renowned for his bubbly personality and permanent smile, which could not be further from his face in this image.

Maybe Spurs do go on to win the league this season?

Phil Foden

Foden AI

Yes, this is Phil Foden at 50-years-old, but you could be mistaken for thinking it is Chelsea legend, Dennis Wise.

The Manchester City academy graduate has started to feature on a regular basis for Pep Guardiola this season and has played a big part in the Champions League campaign already.

Contributing to three goals in as many European games, the 23-year-old appears to be establishing himself as one City’s most important players.

Declan Rice

Rice AI

Signing for Arsenal during the summer heaped a huge amount of pressure on Declan Rice, leaving his boyhood club West Ham for a staggering £105m.

Despite this hefty price tag, the England international has hit the ground running and is one of the first names on Mikel Arteta’s team sheet.

According to his 50-year-old AI image, Rice will have built up quite the physique from lifting countless trophies for both club and country!

Cole Palmer

Palmer AI

Cole Palmer’s future as a 50-year-old could cause some concern for the Chelsea midfielder, as he is the first player on the list to lose the majority of his hair!

However, the former Manchester City player will have plenty to brag about in his old age if his form from this season continues – contributing to six goals in nine matches under Mauricio Pochettino.

He has quickly stated his case as Chelsea’s penalty-taker and is now one of the Blues’ most creative players despite signing in the summer.

Jack Grealish

Grealish AI

You’d be forgiven for mistaking this AI image of Jack Grealish as a member of the Peaky Blinders, especially with the Birmingham accent.

The trademark slick back hair is still going strong, even in his old age and the former Aston Villa player looks like a man that continued his form from the 2022-23 season.

This year has been a difficult start for Grealish, as Jeremy Doku continues to impress on Manchester City’s left wing – but the Englishman is still trusted by Gareth Southgate.

Jadon Sancho

Sanco AI

Jadon Sancho has been one of the most controversial players in the world over recent months, after a falling out with Erik ten Hag has left him out of action since August.

The Manchester United manager criticised the winger’s performances in training and Sancho took to Twitter to respond – leaving the Dutchman in search of an apology.

His full head of hair and lack of grey as a 50-year-old man suggests the absence from football did not cause Jadon Sancho any stress!

Mason Mount

Mount AI

Chelsea supporters were left stunned when their academy star, Mason Mount, swapped blue for red and signed for Manchester United in the summer.

However, since joining Erik ten Hag’s side, Mount has struggled to work his way into the starting eleven and has already suffered a list of injuries.

It’s good to see Mount in an England shirt again through this AI generated image, as he has not been called up to the England side in almost a year.

Aaron Ramsdale

Ramsdale AI

Aaron Ramsdale has been at the centre of attention during the opening of this Premier League campaign, after losing his number one spot to David Raya.

Prior to the Spaniard’s move to the Emirates, Aaron Ramsdale had the first four league matches and the Gunners were undefeated in the process. However, the 25-year-old has been on the bench for Arsenal’s last eight fixtures in the Premier League.

We suspect the Arsenal goalkeeper has spent wisely as a 50-year-old man, as he boasts a fuller head of hair than he does at just 25 years of age!

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent AI

Trent Alexander-Arnold has been one of the best right-backs in the world over recent seasons and is already in the conversation for the best in Premier League history.

However, the 25-year-old has registered just one assist in the league so far, the lowest tally at this stage of the season in his career.

The years have been kind to Trent, as he looks strong for many entering his fifties and could probably still score a 30-yard free-kick.

James Maddison

Maddison AI

The former Leicester City midfielder has been one of the signings of the summer, after joining Spurs in the summer for an estimated fee of £40m.

Ange Postecoglou has brought the potential of Maddison to fruition, with the England international contributing to eight goals in the league so far.

At 50-years-old the Tottenham midfielder still boasts an impressive sun tan and looks like he could lead England’s midfield until his sixties!

Kalvin Phillips

Phillips AI

Phillips has been the topic of hot debate over the last year or so, as Gareth Southgate continues to include him in the England squad – despite a lack of playing time.

Since signing for Manchester City in the summer of 2022, the former Leeds player has accumulated under 900 minutes of football.

The 27-year-old has maintained his long hair but at this rate, Phillips may have to wait until he’s 50 before earning a starting place in the Manchester City side

Eberechi Eze

Eze AI

The Crystal Palace midfielder has seen a meteoric rise during the course of his Premier League career and is now a consistent member of Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Contributing to three goals already, the 25-year-old is a pivotal player for Roy Hodgson, which was highlighted by the Eagles’ three straight defeats in Eze’s absence.

Donning a Crystal Palace shirt at 50-years-old could suggest some loyalty but Eze, as he is undoubtedly destined for a top six move.

Conor Gallagher

Gallagher AI

Robbie Savage? David Ginola? Not quite, this 50-year-old Conor Gallagher boasts an impressive amount of hair – more than he has now!

Gallagher has started the season superbly for Chelsea, after many expected the England international to move elsewhere in the summer.

His relentless work rate has proved vital for Mauricio Pochettino and was a key member in their 4-1 victory over Spurs and 4-4 draw with Manchester City.

Ben White

White AI

Ben White has struggled to earn a place in Gareth Southgate’s side after withdrawing from the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

However, he continues to play a huge part in Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side, featuring in every match so far prior to the Gunners’ 3-1 win over Burnley.

His 50-year-old self has a mix of Lionel Messi and Gary Lineker about it, two Barcelona legends, but we don’t expect a move to the Nou Camp any time soon.

Jarrod Bowen

Bowen AI

The sad look on Jarrod Bowen’s 50-year-old face can not be in relation to his performance this season, as the West Ham winger is one of the most in-form players in the league.

Scoring eight goals in the league so far, a tally only bested by Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah, the 26-year-old has stunned supporters.

Featuring in Gareth Southgate’s last two England squads, Bowen is set to be included in the Euro 2024 selection.

Gareth Southgate

Southgate AI

The England manager has already brought hope back to a nation, after reaching the 2018 World Cup Semi Final, the Euro 2021 Final and the 2022 World Cup Quarter Final.

Despite this, his 80-year-old self does not look like a man that has gone on to win his country silverware – which is what is now expected going into Euro 2024.

England have already qualified for the competition and will go to Germany as one of the favourites to clinch the trophy.
