Whatever else happens, you don't want to be left on the bench.
With the world cup approaching, the thought of being left out - of being so close, yet so far - must be punishing.
Thankfully, Jamie N Commons has received his call up. The gravel-voiced South Londoner is set to feature on the Beats By Dre world up advert this summer.
'Jungle' - recorded with X Ambassadors - will soundtrack a new advert which features Neymar Jr., Bacary Sagna, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Blaise Matuidi, Cesc Fàbregas, Daniel Sturridge, Chicharito, Jozy Altidore, Luis Suárez, Mario Götze, and Robin van Persie... alongside many, many more.
Check out the advert below.
