England U21 manager Gareth Southgate believes he has a great amount of depth within his squad after guiding them to the Euro2015 championships.
The Young Lions defeated Croatia 2-1 on Tuesday to gain a spot in next year's Czech Republic tournament by virtue of a 4-2 aggregate triumph.
The successful group stage and play-off victory was produced mainly by a group that Southgate has relied upon throughout the campaign which has prompted him to suggest that recalling such players as Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley, John Stones, Calum Chambers, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere could be out of the question.
Southgate has used the likes of Saido Berahino, Harry Kane, Liam Moore, Will Hughes, Nathan Redmond and Tom Carroll during the qualifying campaign and is not about to deny these types the chance to represent their country at the Euros next year as he feels they are certainly good enough to achieve success.
"I have been very careful throughout the campaign about who comes into the squad. They have to have a connection with the team and desire to come and play. I never worry about who I haven't got and I'm not going to start now," he said.
"You can drive yourself to distraction. We could write a team sheet with illustrious names not involved here. The fact is, I believe we have such depth that we can challenge whoever we are playing with whatever players we put out on the pitch.
"There may have been cases where some players haven't fitted in to what we are doing. I certainly haven't had a club pull out a player and thought 'that's a bit off'.
"Managers and coaches at clubs have been really supportive - and I don't think that will change."
He added: "I want the credit to be on the group who have achieved this. Can we win it? We have no way of knowing what the quality of the other teams are. The planning starts here."
