For the national team, yes. If I were England's manager Gerrard, Rooney, Lampard, Garreth Barry (although I can't say that he is over rated and over hyped because most people realize he is awful) and the rest of the over rated, over paid, over hyped "stars" would never play for the national team again*.
My team would be:
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Andy Carroll, Joe Hart, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Darren Bent, James Milner (for the time being, would bench him to if his performance for the national team does not improve), Jordan Henderson, Kieran Gibbs, Chris Smalling, Micah Richards, Ashley Cole, and so on.
*except Ashley Cole.
